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 2019, she embarked on her very first solo tour throughout Europe, hit the main stage at reggae’s largest festival worldwide Rototom Sunsplash in Spain, performed on PUMA Middle East’s stage in Dubai at Sole DXB Festival and opened for Protoje on his U.S. tour.
Her and labelmate Sevana also joined Protoje on his sets at Reggae Sumfest (Montego Bay, Jamaica) and BRIC’s Celebrate Brooklyn! (NYC, USA). Having appeared as a featured guest on tracks by Protoje (“Flight Plans”), Royal Blu (“Believe”) and Koro Fyah (“Got it For You,” “Raggamuffin”) and on mixtapes by Addis Pablo & Equiknoxx Music and Yaadcore, she is now building an impressive single catalog of her own. Songs include “Biggest Fan,” (2017), “Gotti Gotti” (2017), “Second Chance” (2018), “Where I’m Coming From” (2019), “Sweet Inspiration” (2019) and “I Spy” (2020).
She is currently gearing up for her debut EP in Spring 2020 via In.Digg.Nation Collective/Six Course/RCA Records.
