Vanessa Bling makes Bill­board de­but

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Dance­hall artiste Vanessa Bling is re­joic­ing this week as her ‘Still Stand­ing’ EP has made its Bill­board Reg­gae Chart de­but. Re­leased on Septem­ber 18, the six-track EP fea­tures the lead sin­gles ‘10 Bags’ and ‘Free­dom’ which have been mak­ing the rounds on var­i­ous ra­dio sta­tions lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Cur­rently signed to At­lanta-based Out­tas­pace Entertainment and man­aged by En-Treeg Records, the Fu­ture Guar­an­teed artiste learned on Tues­day that her third EP de­buted at num­ber nine on the famed chart, earn­ing the Hot Shot De­but Award.

“This is an amaz­ing feel­ing,” Bling said. “I al­ways be­lieved that this was where I be­longed, and I am thank­ful for my la­bel, my man­age­ment and my en­tire team for be­liev­ing in me as well.”.

This is the first time the artiste has charted on Bill­board, but she be­lieves that she is des­tined for bet­ter.

“The work my team and I have been putting in is no joke. Be­lieve me when I tell you, this is just the be­gin­ning,” Bling said.

Still Stand­ing isn’t Vanessa Bling’s first at­tempt at chart­ing with an al­bum. As Gaza Slim, she re­leased Adid­ja­heim Records Presents: In­tro­duc­ing Vanessa Bling As Gaza Slim in 2011 which fea­tured Vybz Kar­tel. Her se­cond EP, Girl Boss, came out in 2012.
