New York-based soca songstress Cali Gray has leapt out of her conservative box to reveal her naughty side on her new single “Wicked”.
The Trinidad-born singer with the distinctive raspy vocals gets raunchy on the bouncy Selectah Kern (Keron Cadette) and Mr. Spine (Shawn Stewart) produced track.
Cali Gray, real name Calika Grayson, delivers an eyebrow-raising performance on the Ahtik Studios produced “Wicked” music video. The saucy performer leads a talented team of female dancers in a demonstration of the intricate waist rotations and hip gyrations required to execute a “wicked wine”.
“This song is for the ladies. We are confident and proud of the many shapes and sizes our bodies come in and when we reach on the dance floor we celebrate that without apology. Is up to the guys to decide if they can handle it,” the playful singer said of her new release.
The daughter of the popular DJ Kabuki (Kevin Grayson) and dancer Annmarie George had her debut in 2014 with “All Over” jointly written by Cali Gray and Kareem “Rayza” Thomas and produced by Kevin “Stadic” Charles. In 2016 the same combination created “Happy” which enjoyed heavy rotation during the carnival season. She followed up in 2017 with “Rum Power” and “Ah Love it” with New York-based producer Andre “Mysta Lyon” Simon.
“I love my country. I love our rich culture and I’m here to make a meaningful contribution,” she concluded.
