Tessanne Chin, Alaine, Tami Chynn & Queen Ifrica - Beautiful Sista (Dec 2011)
Producer Arif Cooper teams with reggae stars Alaine, Tami Chynn, Tessanne Chin and Queen Ifrica for an all-star female track titled "Beautiful Sista."
"Essentially, I made the track and I called Alaine. We thought of doing a song that spoke about the strength of the Jamaican woman and women in general," Cooper explained. "We reached out to a bunch of people and that's the side that came together."
Reggae diva Alaine also said she enjoyed working on Beautiful Sista with Cooper and the other females.
"I wrote the hook and thought this needs to be a combination, so I linked Tami, Tessanne and Queen Ifrica and we wrote the rest of the song together," she said. "It was so much fun."
Cooper is not new to cooking up major hits for female singers. He has previously worked with Alaine and Tami Chynn. He produced one of Chynn's biggest songs with the melodic Over and Over, so too Alaine's We Rise (In Love), Love Loud and Clear and Just Do It.
