Reggae-fusion artiste Ammoye has announced her upcoming album Water and shared the third single from the record, “Bad Behaviour”. Set for release on September 17th on Lulaworld Records, Water serves as a rebirth for Ammoye since she has found “the light” on her spiritual journey, covering themes of freedom, transformation & liberation. The writing and recording of the album was a journey itself, as Ammoye started writing in Belize before coming home to Toronto to record with producer Danny Maestro with mastering from Tandra “Lytes” Jhagroo. The 13 songs across the record are lush with melodies and strong lyricism, blending Ammoye’s reggae roots with elements of pop, R&B, and dubstep.
On “Bad Behaviour”, Ammoye gives her audience a strong female anthem, centered around taking ahold of your power and recognizing self-worth. In the video for the song, she channels iconic women including Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Grace Jones, Queen Latifah, and Aretha Franklin.

Her songs of light and vibrant personality make her one of the most dynamic and compelling reggae artists on the scene right now
