Queen Ifrica revelou que Tony Rebel escreveu originalmente o seu hit “Lioness On The Rise” para a cantora Marcia Griffiths
“And we are saying now we are standing all up. Remember weh di song seh? Tony Rebel write it. When the roll is call up I’ll be standing tall up… he wrote it for Auntie Marcia, but he was writing about me, because I was in the household doing it”, revelou a artista.
“I was talking care of the children thereof and dealing with all the issues, but of required I would have been on the frontline. And I am letting you know now without any water in my mouth that I am officially on the frontline with no joke behind it.”
Lançada pela VP Records, como parte do álbum “Montego Bay”, “Lioness on the Rise” foi produzida por Donovan Germain da Penthouse Productions, no Automatic Riddim de 2009.
Numa entrevista ao “Boomshots” em 2009, Queen Ifrica já tinha falado de “Lioness on the Rise”.
“Well the ‘Lioness on The Rise’ is basically saying… There’s an individual who is ready to get up and to stand up for something, especially where it have to do with children. A lot of times, we as public figures tend to believe that we don’t have a responsibility to the people that are listening to us, in terms of being there as an ear, being there as somebody they’re accessible to”, explicou na altura.
“I am so surprised at when I’m dealing with people and I’m just being me, and they’re actually surprised at the fact that I would stop and talk to them, or that I would have a conversation with them for more than ten minutes. Because they don’t get that from our artists because they’re on this ego trip that a lot of us are on”, acrescentou.
“So ‘Lioness On The Rise’ is basically saying that when the roll is called up, we are some of the ones that would be ready to stand up and to be counted as someone who doing something. Who’s not just singing to be famous. But there really are people who are willing to get into the community to get the conversations going and to find solutions.”
