Singer Barbie is currently in Jamaica on a promotional blitz that has seen her getting connected with media and fans as she unveils her latest offering -- the completed video for Come See About Me, featuring US rapper, Trina.
Perhaps the one thing that is most striking about Barbee (let’s forget her derriere for a minute) is the fact that she has matured so much as an artiste and is totally focused on her career and on being a good role model. She is steadily meeting her goals and the Come See About Me video is testament to this fact.
Shot on location in LA, the video is clean, full of energy, overflowing with a glitzy wardrobe, beautiful bodies and a bit of passion.
“The video shoot was a lot of fun,” Barbee recalled. “Trina was just fabulous, the dancers strutted their stuff and the leading man was a dream to work with. The video director is amazing and all the elements combined to produce a quality video that we can all be proud of,” the reggae singer said.
Many of those who have seen the video are already singing it high praises. It was officially premiered on CVM’s On Stage with Winford Williams, last Saturday.
Barbee has surely come a far way from the budding starlet of a couple years ago who did the hot combination single, Missing You, with Junior Kelly.
“Missing You did a whole lot for my career and I really thank Junior Kelly for taking the time to work with a young artiste like I was at the time and playing a part in making good things happen for me. Of course, I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again, especially since it’s been years since we have linked up,” Barbee said.
With this collaborative effort that is poised to expose her to other markets, Barbee is hell-bent on working it. Hip hop princess, Trina, who has great credibility in both hip hop and reggae/dancehall worlds, was this year given the ‘Friend of Reggae Award’ from the Excellence in Music and Entertainment Awards (EMEs in Jamaica).
