In celebration of International Women’s Day, VP Records artist Jah9 is releasing a great exhibition for such an important event. At 12pm noon EST yesterday, the visual for her song “Heaven” was dropped on YouTube. The incredibly dynamic visual highlights the wonders of womanhood through fashion, scenery and art. The singer will also be taking her music and Yoga on the road as she embarks on a Spring tour. (Dates below)

Directed by Fernando F. Hevia (Rory StoneLove, Kabaka Pyrmaid) and styled by top Jamaican designer/stylist Flower Child 1999, (featured in Marie Claire / Vanity fair), the video has no shortage on vintage and modern fashions with a Janelle Monet meets Beyonce aesthetic.

With visuals of sovereignty and empowering lyrics of black femininity, a sample of the lyrics state: “The sacrifices our people made, The reparations are still not paid, But my potential is unrestrained.” Here, Jah9 encapsulates the modern age black woman by encouraging them to not let the past stop them from moving forward.

“Heaven is your highest joy,” says Jah9 about the song. “To the yogi, the highest joy is transcending the flesh and being one with God. Really and truly, I believe everyone wants that, but everyone doesn’t call it that.”

Jah9 is a versatile and talented female Jamaican musician, motivational speaker, poet, activist, certified Kemetic Yoga instructor and advocate for overall wellness. Her music is laced with powerful messages that enlighten listeners on mindfulness and healthy living. Her healthy living anthem “Feel Good” was the lead single from her “Feelings” EP released last year. The single was also featured on VP Records “Strictly the Best Vol. 58” which came out January 2019.

Ahead of her new album to be released on VP Records this summer, she is on tour March and April with stops at various venues and Festivals in Florida, Puerto Rico, Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Cincinnati, Louis, MO, Memphis and concluding in Austin Texas at the Austin Reggae Festival.
