Following the success of the 2007 mega-hit, 'Coming Over', featuring, songstress Cherine Anderson, Chuck Fenda may have found another hit with his most recent collaboration, Believe.

The track which features the mature vocals of 16-year-old singer, Jada-K, is being compared to Fenda and Anderson's hit.

Also a sultry love song, Fenda says based on the reaction the song has garnered so far, he expects it to do well. "It's just a different vibe. It's been about three weeks since its release and it's been buzzing on Facebook and other social networks, people have really been positive," he said.

The chemistry heard in the vocal arrangement on the track may make it hard to believe that the two artistes had not known each other prior to working together.

Fenda explained, "I was driving through Portmore one day when she (Jada-K) stopped me and told me she was a singer. She auditioned right there, sang a few notes and I was blown away." He said he was surprised at how mature her voice was and explained that a meeting with her parents became crucial in the plans going forward.

After meeting with her parents, Fenda said the pair went to King Jammys Studio in Waterhouse, where the song was recorded. "When I took her to the studio and John John heard her sing, him say 'Fenda yuh affi do a song with her.' We got the rhythm, I started singing a few lines and so did she. We both wrote our parts of the song."

Jada-K, whose real name is Jada Murphy, is a student of Vauxhall High. She told The WEEKEND STAR that although she has a couple years before graduating, she is ready to start her career. "I am learning how to balance school and music, and although I still have a lot more to learn, mi ready fi di road," she said.

The song, produced by Christopher Birch and Ward 21's Andre 'Suku' Grey, is already receiving tremendous airplay from local radio stations. Also, the pair has already shot the video, which is scheduled to be released next week.
