With the same punch as your morning caffeine hit, 18-year-old Koffee releases her debut single, Toast, today on Columbia Records. Originally inspired into making music by listening to reggae and dancehall legends like Proteje and Super Cat, everything came full circle earlier this year when the former reached out to request she perform with him. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind since.
Toast blesses us with energy and youthful pride, and the accompanying music video is as celebratory as the name suggests, taking viewers on a tour through her neighbourhood of Spanish Town, Jamaica, while lyrics lay down an ode to Koffee’s achievements so far. “ Toast is one of the more sentimental tracks taken from my upcoming EP, Rapture,” she says. “It’s about my musical journey; from being in high school and writing lyrics to entering the music industry and being able to accomplish great things upon my entrance. It’s about the gratitude I feel for all these things.”
Produced by Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire, Toast brings a signature blend of sunshine and fun times that’ll leave you buzzing. While she’s off touring the UK with Grammy-nominated Chronixx — she just played London’s Alexandra Palace, Bush Hall and a BBC Introducing event, no less — raise a mug to the video above and brace yourself for this teen’s takeover.
