LISA MERCEDEZ EXPLORES HER MORE TENDER SIDE ON DANCEHALL JAM
Listen to the track
After a slew of freestyles racking up heat online and in the streets, UK via Jamaica artist Lisa Mercedez has unveiled a brand new single, ‘No Disturbance’. The track, a dancehall-indebted slow jam trades in her ferocious bars for tender singing, revealing a side to the London based artist rarely seen before.
A track detailing the more intimate details of attraction, Lisa’s autotuned vocal glides over a relaxed dancehall instrumental. A perfect early contender for this summer’s true R&B smash, ‘No Disturbance’ chronicles the hazy romances that the hotter months bring alongside electronically tinged dancehall rhythms and an authentic yet softly spoken patois flow. With ‘No Disturbance’, Lisa Mercedez takes the authentic Jamaican sound that she’s become synonymous with and adapted it to create a huge crossover smash with endless appeal ahead of a packed summer schedule that sees her play both Wireless and Reading & Leeds, as well as support to Sneakbo at Mixpak’s Village Underground takeover and her own headline show at London’s The Curtain venue. Tickets available here.
Stepping out of her comfort zone to provide a track that revels more in its emotional content than the hard-edged rap flows many are used to seeing from her, ‘No Disturbance’ marks Lisa Mercedez as an artist willing to switch things up in the name of diversifying her sound. A truly eclectic artist with obvious international appeal, 2018 is the year that the Nicki Minaj approved rapper finally goes global.
