News Americas, MIAMI, FL, Weds. Feb. 14, 2018: A top Caribbean-born dancehall Star is set to make her entrance on the US reality TV scene.
Jamaican dancehall artist, Spice, is set to appear on the seventh season of VH1’s hit show “Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta,” which airs on March 19th.
“I had always been fan of show and it’s always been my dream to become an actress and do movies and shows,” she was recently quoted in the Caribbean Life as saying. “So when they came to Jamaica, that inspired me to become a member and when they had an open slot — I went for it.”
Spice is no stranger to the VH1 television series as she was a guest on the show last year when the cast visited Jamaica in 2017. She has also recorded a song with one of her cast members, reality star Tommie Lee.
Spice says she believes her move into the US music industry will redirect her musical.
“I personally think I outgrew Jamaican artists, and I don’t think I can be any bigger than I already am in my country,” she told the paper. “I’ve always been thinking of ways to branch out in America and I came up with the grand idea to be on “Love and Hip-Hop” as way to breakout, and I think reality television is the new thing right now.”
Spice, born Grace Latoya Hamilton in Portmore, Jamaica, and is known for songs like ‘Needle Eye,’ ‘So Me like It,’ ‘Conjugal Visit,’ and ‘Sheet.’ Last year, Spice vowed that in 2018 she would shake things up by adding more hip-hop to her catalog. Her first video and single of the year, ‘Duffle Bag,’ was released on in January and pointed out that if international acts can use dancehall and reggae to their advantage, Jamaican entertainers are also free to do so.
