COLE­MAN HOPES NEW SIN­GLE WILL EM­POWER WOMEN

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE - CUR­TIS CAMP­BELL STAR Writer

Record­ing artiste Dadre Cole­man is pro­mot­ing a brand new sin­gle ti­tled ‘Long Legs’. The sin­jay, who raised eye­brows with her dance sin­gle, De­signer Wine, in 2016, be­lieves Long Legs will take her ca­reer to even higher heights.

“I came up with the con­cept for the song, but it was mainly writ­ten by David McFar­lane and a few other guys that were in the stu­dio at the time, in­clud­ing my la­bel mate, Fed­eral,” she said.

Cole­man said the song was cre­ated to cel­e­brate fem­i­nine beauty as well as to evoke a sense of pride, es­pe­cially for fe­males who might be trou­bled with self­es­teem is­sues.

“Be­fore writ­ing the song, David asked me to give him some of the things that guys mostly com­pli­ment me about, and that’s how Long Legs came about,” she ex­plained.

Cole­man said the song is to let women know that they should be proud of who they are and how God made them.

“We are liv­ing in a world right now where peo­ple are so caught up in van­ity, ma­te­rial things and false­ness that they lose sight of the fact that they have life,” she said.

Cole­man rea­soned that if you are not happy with your­self, it will be hard for you to make some­body else happy.

“Even though the con­tent was in­spired by my ex­pe­ri­ence, it is also a record of em­pow­er­ment,” Cole­man said.

The sin­gle is al­ready re­ceiv­ing ro­ta­tion in Eng­land and the United States. Her man­age­ment team will also re­lease an ac­com­pa­ny­ing mu­sic video in com­ing months.

“I have not given up on pro­mot­ing De­signer Wine ei­ther be­cause I still be­lieve it has a long way to go; how­ever, it’s a new year and, there­fore, the fans need new ma­te­rial, which is why I de­cided to re­lease Long Legs at this time,” she said.
