You might know Etana from her stint as a backing vocalist for Richie Spice, but with 'The Strong One' (also the translation of her pseudonym from Hebrew) the songstress now delivers her solo debut. Purists should be warned though, as a pure roots reggae album, this is not. On 'The Strong One' Etana flirts with all the genres that inspire her and apart from reggae those also include r&b, soul and gospel, something that already earned her comparisons with Lauryn Hill. With 'The Strong One' Etana blows a fresh female wind through the Jamaican music landscape. To keep an eye on!
