Sometimes it is where you're from and not where you're at Tami Chynn, seated in Akon's Atlanta studio is a long way from her hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, the place where she experienced her first foray into singing and dancing, initially for family and friends then later for screaming fans.
At first glance it's clear to see that Tami Chynn is indeed one of a kind a pop princess who emerged from one of the grittiest, male dominated music scenes Jamaica's dancehall. "My influences are very eclectic. If you browsed my iPod you'd get confused, but it all works really," says Tami. As she prepares to release PRIMADONNA, her major label debut on SRC/Universal Records, Miss Chynn's main focus is making music that inspires girls everywhere and of all ages. Tami succeeds in doing just that by singing fun, empowering, sexy, and at times sentimental lyrics over the platinum RedOne/Konvict sound. Her songs move you in the emotional and physical sense of the word, as this album is sure to keep you on the dance floor.
Ironically, as she prepares introduce her new material to the world and embark on her debut performance with Akon, she returns to the place where she first found inspiration to be a star. At the age of fourteen, Tami Chynn moved to London where she spent the next three years absorbing the culture and sights while attending school for performing arts.Ã‚Â It was during this time Tami realized that her dream of becoming an artist could in fact be her reality, and when she returned to Jamaica she set out to establish her "roots." Taking lessons from Jamaican artists such as Beenie Man, Sean Paul and Lady Saw, all of whom she's collaborated with in the past, Tami realized early on the importance of catering to her core audience before spreading abroad. Soon after the release of her first video, "Rock U," Jamaica was all abuzz with talk of this fresh new female artist who's hot sound was rivaled by her even hotter look.
Once she had everyone's attention, Tami Chynn earned her respect as someone to watch, keeping herself current by appearing on the hottest 'riddims' with many of the young successful artists out of Jamaica. While her underground hits such as "Touch Me," "I'd Like to Know," and "Show Me Now," were gaining popularity Tami released an independent album led by the single "Hyperventilating" featuring popular reggae group T.O.K.
