New York-based singer Tega is on a major push to roll out a number of commercially friendly songs this Christmas to capitalize on the buzz created by her recent Cant Hold Me Down single.

She has been riding high on the success of her Can’t Hold Me Down single which continues to generate major buzz on FM radio and her video has been in heavy rotation on local cable stations.

"I have been getting a lot of positive feedback for the video so far.
Can't hold me down has been making its move through the airwaves not
only in Jamaica and NY but has become very popular in England, Canada,
Boston, Florida. I'm set for a show next weekend in England. I will
also be appearing in Chicago at the end of the month,” she said.

She has also been booked to perform at Wavs beach on December 27th in Jamaica.

She is eyeing a major collaboration with a local artiste for a single
called Tell Me You Want Me.
“I can’t tell you who yet because we haven’t signed off  on it but
it’s going to be a big one, and I will definitely be shooting a video
for it next year,” Tega said.

 In the meantime, Tega’s followup single, "Don't Pressure Me'' will be
released on an independent label in December.

After making her name as a precocious young singer in an
utra-successful gospel group, and performing alongside music industry
heavyweights at famous venues such as Madison Square Gardens and other
huge arenas, Tega has finally found her individual voice.

“I have been doing a lot of interviews in the tri-state area with
media personnel and I have been getting tremendous feedback on my
facebook and myspace pages, fans have been saying they like my flow
and my delivery. I am going all out to shut the haters up and take
over my spot," she said.

“I am now assembling a street team to aggressively promote my  songs
in the street dances in Kingston as Christmas approaches and I believe
the song ah go blow everyone away for the rest of the year," she said.
