Lila Ike takes us back to our roots

With only a handful of singles, Lila Iké (pronounced Lee-lah Eye-kay) is already on the brink of stardom. The straight-shooting free-spirited singer has an edge and ease in her voice that creates an immediate gravitational pull with her listener, fusing contemporary reggae with elements of soul, hip-hop and dancehall.
The fast-rising songbird from Manchester, Jamaica is gaining attention at home and abroad with her distinctive delivery, old-school sensibilities and modern-day swagger. She recently landed features in The FADER, Billboard and Flaunt and landed “Artist To Watch” lists for BBC 1xtra Hot for 2020, Complex and Relix Magazine. In the video for her current single “Where I’m Coming From,” singer Lila Iké returns to her rural roots, the Christiana area of Manchester parish, located in south-central Jamaica. Throughout the 4:32 clip, family, life-long friends and a wider community surround Lila, who has in the past few years emerged from her small-town background to become one of Jamaica’s most buzzed about young talents.
