US-based recording artiste Schen is pleased with the feedback to her latest video, 'Ready' in the local market. 

"The video is now in rotation on HYPE, RE and other video platforms, and I have been interacting with fans in Jamaica who love the vocals and look of the video," Schen, whose real name is Shenequewa Absolom, said. 


A video, released for the project in November 2018, has already racked up thousands of views so far on video sharing site, YouTube. Now, the video is getting a major promotional push in Jamaica. The song has been added to rotation on IRIE, ZIP and Mello FM. 


In the meantime, the spunky 26 year-old is gearing up to release her second single, the saucy 'Get Vex Money', in April.


"We will be shooting the video for 'Get Vex Money' next month in Florida, it's going to be epic,” Schen said.  


Schen is proud of her Jamaican roots as her parents hail from Barrett Town, St. James. Schen was born in the Bronx, then grew up in Queens where she attended Benjamin N Cardozo high school. She is largely a self-taught vocalist but honed her talents between private school choirs and listening to classic reggae tunes. 


"There was something about creating a vibe that made people feel good that intrigued me and that is why I want to be an entertainer," she said. 


During her teens, Schen began singing at gatherings at various events and venues where she would wow audiences with her seductive ice-cube clear vocals. Schen is also an accomplished songwriter, and she has been meticulously honing her skills writing songs since the age of 18.


She is presently signed to Abscott Entertainment, and over the last few months, she has been locked in the studio, fine-tuning her sound, writing and recording songs for her debut EP. 


"I love writing, being able to express myself whether it's over an instrumental of my favourite song or over a rhythm I purchased online. Writing awakens my confidence in a way I never thought possible," she said.
