Females give 'Independent Girl' thumbs up


High-school and college females have been saying thank you to dancehall star Konshens, following the release of his latest single, Independent Girl, on the popular Overdrive rhythm produced by JA Productions.

The lyrics of the song states:

" I love when a girl knows how to handle herself,/

she nuh fraidy fraidy/ from a hustling she ready/

aahhh no she a nuh clown/

cyah tek har fi no come a roun/ Oh that's the kind a girl I like serious about the goals in life/ she smart and sexy."

"It's not very often you hear a dancehall artiste big up the hard-working females and still let us feel sexy. Independent Girl is a real inspiration, it makes me feel to continue my educational hustle and take a moment when I can to unwind and enjoy myself same time," Melissa Wright of New York wrote in an email to Konshens about the song.

Another email from Sherese Velasques of Boston, Massachusetts, stated: "Konshens, thanks for the positive words and big-ing up the hard-working females looking to make their own money in life and staying focus on their goals."

It is always great to see when the fans can be inspired by the music artistes make in a positive way and use it as a form of motivation. Konshens, who is back in Jamaica after a recent performance in Costa Rica alongside dancehall pop superstar Sean Paul, was pleased to hear the news and positive response to Independent Girls.

"Well, since the release of the song, the response from ladies on my social media sites have been overwhelming. ladies really love the message and the groove of the song ... and what can I say ... I'm happy about it!" he said.
