Samantha J

Jamaican singer Samantha J. took a chance on a talent search and ended up with a record deal. For the seventeen year old, it was just natural. ”Ever since I could talk I loved music,” she shared during a Skype interview, which she manged to squeeze in between classes at her high school.

“I went to Kingston and sang Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ — which is an amazing song.” Now, she’s working on her own amazing songs. “Recording, for me, is like going into my zone. We had a full studio, with a producer. It was really fun.”

They were all singing along. One minute, I was a girl going to school, and the next, it had blown up. My name was everywhere. It was mind-blowing.”

Set to graduate in June, she explained that balancing school and her career requires “time management. I have to be a hard worker.” But she doesn’t think that should stop anyone from giving an entertainment career a shot. “Go for it! If you see an opportunity, take it. Because even if it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t hurt to try.”

You can check out tracks from her upcoming album below, and keep with her as she records, tours and you know, graduates from high school, on her website.
