After months of speculation and a tantalizing hint from recent single “West Indies” – Today, February 3rd, 21 year old Koffee announces the release of her debut album Gifted due March 25th.

Having garnered attention with her 2019 global anthem “Toast” and subsequent EP Rapture, it’s hard to believe that Koffee is yet to release a full-length album – in the short time she’s been making music she’s become a pillar of the reggae and dancehall music community, radiating her message of hope and positivity from her home in Spanish Town, Jamaica to audiences around the world. Prioritizing authenticity, she’s created an album that transcends its influences, creating an innovative and fresh body of work that is ready to push the genre forward.

To mark the news of Gifted, today also sees Koffee release her brand new single “Pull Up.” Making its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, BET Soul, BET Jams, launching as Clara Amfo’s “Hottest Record” on BBC Radio 1 and produced by Afroswing pioneer Jae5, the track is accompanied by a KC Locke-directed video that swaps the island setting of her previous video for “West Indies” (filmed on the cliffs of West End, Negril) for the less tropical location of a shipping yard in Manchester, UK – nonetheless, Koffee exudes joy as she speeds through the urban landscape, exclaiming what her audiences have known for a long time “I don’t play, you will never ever find another like me.”

2022 will see Koffee taking her electrifying live show to stages across the globe including the recently announced US dates on her “Gifted Tour” as well her debut appearance at Coachella. In addition, Koffee will celebrate the album’s release with a number of intimate in- store shows throughout the UK, starting at London’s EartH on the day of its release.
“Pull Up” is the latest musical statement from an artist that has reshaped, modernized and revitalized reggae, bringing it to a whole new audience. It comes on the back of an incredible few years for the Spanish Town-born artist, who made history in 2020 by becoming the first female and youngest ever artist to win the Best Reggae Album award at the GRAMMYS for her Rapture project.

Alongside a string of high profile musical collaborations (including J Hus, Gunna, Daniel Caesar), Koffee also recently contributed to the soundtrack of 2021’s “The Harder They Fall” on Netflix.
