The Star News had carried a piece on the issue as well:
Recording artiste Barbee recently premiered an explosive video for her new single, 'Babylon', which sees her pushing sexual limits. In the video, Barbee is seen engaging in a sexual romp with a female in a steam room.
Barbee said she was at ease with the video, and felt empowered and confident to share the "truth" with her fans. She also reiterated that, as a woman in the industry, she would not like her intellect to be negated based on the video concept.
"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone," she said.
Crowned 'Reggae Pop Princess' by talk show diva Wendy Williams, the recording artiste and songwriter is fresh off her European and Australian tour.
No stranger to the Jamaican musical landscape, Barbee first emerged working with artistes such as Junior Kelly, with whom she recorded the hit single Missing You. The song received airplay in the Caribbean and overseas, and reached number one on Jamaican charts.
Barbee's other popular recordings include Paddy Cake and Give It Up, collaborations with dancehall icon Beenie Man. She followed up with successful records, Love You Anyway and Feel So Good.
Barbee said she is ready to carry her love for music to new horizons and is working with Grammy award-nominated producers The Exclusives and the island duo, Rock City, who penned the megahit, Man Down, for Rihanna.
She continues to book shows worldwide, recording in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Jamaica. Barbee will also be launching her line of studio-quality headphones, Barbee Everting Pretty Headphones, which will be released soon.
