Couch Mode
Iconic dancehall DJ Shabba Ranks set the stage ablaze on Reggae Sumfest's International Night 1 when he invited the soulful and sultry singer Cherine to join him in front of the thousands of reggae and dancehall lovers.

The young Dancehall - Soulstress wasn't scheduled on the festival line up but was brought out by Ranks and together they created a chemistry that rocked the house; setting social media on fire with tweets and facebook posts about everything from the songs to Cherine's hot performance with the master.

All in attendance got a rare chance to see the "Emperor" of Dancehall Shabba Ranks, who has not performed on Jamaican soils for eleven years, bring out a young female talent, Cherine, who matched his sensual energy and confidence on stage, displaying a performance of international standard. The talented singer wrapped her powerful vocals around three of Shabba Rank's most prominent female collaborations 'Telephone Love,' 'Mr. Loverman' and 'Twice my Age'.

Together Shabba and Cherine created dancehall magic onstage to the excitement of the audience as was evident from the deafening sounds of horns and the multiple camera phones raised to snap pictures and videos of their performance.

When asked how she felt about the performance Cherine said "I feel great, many people met Cherine on Friday night I hope they weren't expecting Ms. Anderson" the singer joked, "Shabba's fans came out to see a dancehall show so that's what we put on. It is an honor to work with such an accomplished and successful artist like him, a true professional and one of my favorite DJs, plus he's real cool to work with."
