"Yuh know Konshens has a song on that rhythm also, the two songs a run them one another hot, so anything can play," she admitted.

Tifa has described 2016 as her year because topping a chart in St Lucia is not her only recent success; the artiste recently made the playlist of BBC Radio One in the United Kingdom.

"I'm honoured, since I've never had a song at the top of BBC Radio One. I felt proud as a Jamaican and as a woman. It's always a awesome feeling when the hard work pays off," she said.

Tifa said she has singles in the making to connect with all her fans.

"Oh gosh, whole heap a singles coming. Yuh have Get With The Programme, Crazy and Side Chick Upgrade," she said.

The artiste also disclosed that Bugle has a single coming out with Busy Signal, Assassin, Dexta Daps and herself, among others.

"International singles are also in the making, but I can't say too much yet. When the remix them come out," she told THE STAR.
