Wyclef Jean protege and Heads Music recording artist Jazzy Amra has just released her debut album called “AMRA”.
The project was produced by legendary Wyclef Jean and includes Jazzy’s new single “Waste of Time”. It also includes her standout track “You Got Me” which originally brought our attention to the emerging artist and landed on our Top 100 R&B Songs of 2018 list.
The Bronx, New York born vocalist pens songs on the 7-track project exploring love, fun, ambition and life’s tribulations. On “Jazzy’s Diary,” Jazzy openly revisits a childhood of sleeping in rehab centers with her siblings as her mother fought addiction and living in foster care after her mom’s passing. She adds about the project:
“My inspiration while writing and recording my album was my everyday life. Through the music I want people to get to know me and see the truth about what I have gone through… good & bad.”
Following her signing to Heads Music, Jazzy burst onto the New York Hip Hop scene collaborating with Dave East on “Jazzy’s Interlude” and “Slow Down” from his Paranoia EP and was featured on Wyclef’s album “Carnival III: Fall and Rise of a Refugee.” In addition, Jazzy has performed on stages around the world as support on Wyclef’s recent “The Carnival Tour” and will appear on Wyclef’s forthcoming project “Wyclef Goes Back to School.”
