After being sidelined due to a 2011 case, Vybz Kartel-protege Vanessa Bling, formerly known as Gaza Slim, returns to music with a new lease on her career and hot new music like the bossy new video, “10 Bags”. The Jamaican sensation pick up right where she left off with a luxury style and signature star power on the new video that includes a heist and criminal-minded riches.
“10 Bags” is off of Bling’s new EP, Still Standing, a powerful new project that answers her absences and what we can expect from the bold return moving into 2019. In 2011, Vanessa Bling was one of dancehall’s most promising young starlets, who would go on to earn Jamaica Star’s People’s Choice Awards for “Female Artist Of The Year” and “Most Selling Female Artist.” Under the wing of reggae super star Vybz Kartel, Vanessa Bling also toured the world, appearing on stages from Germany to Israel and all across the Caribbean. It all came to a halt when she was arrested alongside her mentor in 2011.
Vanessa Bling has been revived by both fans and fellow new sensations like chart-topping Atlantic Records recording artist Cardi B (Bodak Yellow). Regrouped and reinspired, Vanessa Bling is set to trailblaze back to the top.
Still Standing is available now on all streaming platforms. Stream Vanessa Bling’s new EP, Still Standing right now, courtesy of Apple Music.
