Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I meet a rising star on the reggae scene.
Lila Iké grew up in the hills of Manchester, Jamaica. After featuring on several tracks by artists such as Protojé and Royal Blu she dropped her debut single Biggest Fan in 2017. A string of successful releases followed. Now, she is back with her latest song.
Called Where I’m Coming From it’s an elegant and inspired mix of reggae, trap, soul and dub. Iké’s effortless and stirring vocals are showcased beautifully across this ode to her humble beginnings. Finished off by some top-notch production, Where I’m Coming From is a delicious hybrid of modern styles, perfectly fitting in with the current Revival movement.
So, I caught up with Iké for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed her relationship with her mother, her unique ability to freestyle many of her songs, the growth of female artists in the Revival movement and more.
