Kerry Starr’s “Believe It,” Produced By Sly & Robbie, Now Enjoying Steady Rotation (@kerrystarr)

Kerry StarrBelieve It, written and performed by Kerry Starr, was recorded in 2007 at the Taxi Records Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. It was produced by the legendary production duo Sly and Robbie on the Tune In Riddim. Though the song was done years ago, back then Kerry was not in a position to properly promote and market the record so she held on to it. Fast forward to 2018 and a more established Kerry Starr is now ready to unleash what she is sure is a hit on to the world stage!

The artist re-released the song a few days ago and is already enjoying rotation from credible radio platforms such as Irie FM. In addition to getting steady radio spins, Believe It is also featured on a number of mixtapes. When asked what she thinks about the feedback the song is getting, a confident Kerry Starr said the following: “I feel good that they like it, I have learnt that good work never goes unnoticed. We just need to keep working. I feel grateful.”
