Reggae-dancehall artiste Black Queen shot a video in Portmore last week for her scorching new single, Up Inna We Belly featuring selector Boom Boom and a mad intro by dancer Sadiki.  
"It is a high-energy video with lots of girls doing the latest dances, a lot of dance routines, the song has its own dance, a lot of ladies from all different cultures. Queen Latiesha and Shelly Belly as the dancers, plus personalities like Mona Lisa, Sadiki, Boom Boom and Six Killa make cameos in the video. Smike the Don and Tinman are the directors of the video
and it ah go shot," Black Queen said.  
The video will be released at the end of June. In the meantime, the single, recorded on Portmore-based Macho Kid’s label, has been doing well at events such as Hot Mondayz, Weddy Weddy, and Gi Weh Wednesdays.
“The song ah go hard inna the street, the dance fi it mad, the song ah buss fast, everybody love the hook, dem love Boom Boom part and Sadiki intro sell off. When it drop a dance, ah crazy money pull up it get. Mi ah go all out inna the streets with the promotion and the selectors dem a give me the support,” an elated Black Queen said.
She said she is not worried how her reggae fans might view her decision to make a hardcore dancehall track with sexual overtones.
“I am entertainer…and an artiste who is free to dabble in different genres of music and experimentation with different sounds. As an artiste, you have to take risks in order to grow and develop, and I am just going with the flow of things,” she said.  
Black Queen scored a hit last year with the conscious single, Black N Proud which peaked at No. 4 on the HYPE TV Top 20 charts this week, and maxed out at No.2 on Suzie Q's Video Alley show on TVJ.
