The 2012 JCDC Festival Song Competition winner Abby Dallas, has defended gold diggers in her new song titled 'Gold Digger'.

Women are known to frown upon the controversial stereotype, however, the singer thinks the term can be used as a means of empowerment.

The term, gold-digger describes women who tend to go after relationships with men soley for gifts and financial gain.

Recording artistes such Kanye West and Vybz Kartel have both released songs about gold-diggers, but Abby Dallas is looking to get women to embrace the term.

 

VOICE WHAT YOU WANT

 

"The song Gold Digger is about strong women who are empowered and they can voice what they want. It's basically the economics of love. The song actually came about as a joke between myself and my friends. After going on a date with a guy, he received the bill and he looked at it and said, 'Would you like to take the bill?' To my surprise, I thought he was joking, but after I realised that he was dead serious. So, I thought to my self, "A weh bruck a guh in 2017?: When you say gold-digger, it goes for both men and women," she said, laughing.

Gold Digger was produced by Lamar 'Riff Raff' Brown and Kamal Evans for Genna Storm productions. The controversial single has also been getting steady rotation on local radio.

Abby Dallas was recently also spotted at Weddy Weddy Wednesdays and Yeng Yeng Fridays, where she has been executing her promotional campaign.

"It's a playful song, not to be taken too seriously. but for all the men that like to brag about all that they can offer, I say to you put your money where yuh mouth is. Car haffi buy and couple houses. Mi bank account, it haffi loaded fi do me hair and buy mi groceries. I also want people to know that you have both male and female gold-diggers, so don't only point at us women," Abby Dallas said.

Gold Digger will be available on all online digital platforms and can be previewed on SoundCloud.
