RED HOT: The singer works the Sumfest crowd in a foxy ensemble.
"I feel great. Many people met Cherine on Friday night. I hope they weren't expecting Ms. Anderson," quips the dancehall-soulstress, in reference to her sexy-badass (and totally unexpected) stint alongside back-on-the-scene legend Shabba Ranks at International Night II, Reggae Sumfest.
Electrifying the massive crowd with a handful of duets, including "Champion Lover" and "Twice My Age," Cherine and Shabba shared a wicked chemistry, made all the more incredible due to its somewhat impromptu nature. "Shabba's fans came out to see a dancehall show, so that's what we put on," Cherine says. "It is an honour to work with such an accomplished and successful artist like him, a true professional and one of my favourite deejays. Plus, he's real cool to work with."
In the wake of Sumfest, Cherine is getting set to film two music videos in the coming weeks. First up is a clip for the much-talked dancehall tune "Haffi Come Back," followed by a shoot for the inspirational anthem "Eagles & Doves." On Aug. 6, the singer will put in an appearance at a special JCDC Independence event in Montego Bay, before heading off to Canada, where she is slated to headline a few festivals in mid-August.
