February 12, 2019

US-based recording artiste Schen is pleased with the feedback to her latest video, Ready, in the local market.

"The video is now in rotation on HYPE, RE TV and other video platforms, and I have been interacting with fans in Jamaica who love the vocals and look of the video," said Schen, whose given name is Shenequewa Absolom.

A video released for the project in November 2018 has already racked up thousands of views so far on video sharing site, YouTube.

Now, the video is getting a major promotional push in Jamaica.

In the meantime, the spunky 26-year-old is gearing up to release her second single, the saucy Get Vex Money, in April.

"We will be shooting the video for Get Vex Money next month in Florida. It's going to be epic," Schen said.

Schen was born in Bronx, New York, then grew up in Queens, where she attended Benjamin N. Cardozo High School.

She is largely a self-taught vocalist but honed her talents between private school choirs and listening to classic reggae tunes.

"There was something about creating a vibe that made people feel good that intrigued me and that is why I want to be an entertainer," she said.

She is presently signed to Abscott Entertainment, and over the last few months, she has been locked in the studio, fine-tuning her sound, writing and recording songs for her debut EP.

"I love writing, being able to express myself, whether it's over an instrumental of my favourite song or over a rhythm I purchased online. Writing awakens my confidence in a way I never thought possible," she said.
