On her newest single Warrior King, Takeyce takes the listener into a somewhat mythical world where a woman sings about her king, a person the woman relies on while she is striving to find her true soul spirit in a world full of distractions. The track is funky with its laidback chorus bassline. Takeyce voice is uplifting, powerful and shines as she harmonizes and occasionally raps to the beat. “It gives a reggae dancehall afro flow; a fantastic way to end such a difficult year and set the vibes for a hopeful and joyful new one,” she said.
The Jamaican Canadian singer-songwriter is the daughter of one of Jamaica’s pioneer gospel artist, Claudelle Clarke. She has been following her mother’s footsteps since the age of five, blending the genres of reggae dancehall, worldbeat, afrobeat, funk, and ska.
In June 2019, Takeyce released her first independent album, MEN*Tal, an eclectic mix of reggae, afro and R&B. The album featured musical productions from Jamaica, Nigeria, Poland, USA, and Canada. It featured her first French song, “Continuer,” which appeared on the City of Toronto’s seasonal playlist.
