The project, serving up an irresistible selection of dancehall-infused pop, is yet another milestone in Monifa’s unstoppable rise.

“The styling, choreography, makeup, hairstyling, filming, editing – it was just screaming Bad Gyal Gossy! I just wanted to showcase what a true Bad Gyal was in the music video while paying homage to my culture and I know for a fact that we aced it!” – Monifa Goss explained

The opening track, “Bad Gyal,” comes roaring out of the gate with an exuberant dancehall pop anthem, celebrating the original woman, Eve. The music video was shot by Hue Wisdom, and it features Monifa Goss having a good time partying in the club, straight ‘Gossy’ style.

“When I started Eve I knew it had to be about female empowerment because that’s what Monifa Goss goes hard for. I’m a feminist. I believe in women experiencing equality right across the board while winning and dominating like crazy and that’s why I called the EP ‘Eve.’ I brought it back home to the first woman that ever walked on planet Earth. She went through all the phases us women go through now in the present and I just thought that someone needed to pay her some homage.” – Monifa Goss explained

“Eve” contains a mix of styles that underpin Monifa’s approach, ranging from full dancehall bangers to more poppy tracks, all boasting her impressively strong R&B vocals. Recent single “Outside” follows, seamlessly mixing RnB and dancehall with a pop twist, showing off Monifa’s prowess as a vocalist and melody-maker. A melange of sunny harmonies and sublime synths, the track is a joyful break for freedom, documenting Monifa’s thoughts of longing during lockdown. Elsewhere on the EP, highlights include ‘Vibe,’ the collaboration with rising Jamaican Dancehall artist Daddy1, and ‘The One’ featuring reggae musician Gabra.

Aiming to be a “triple threat,” Monifa Goss’ style comprises a fusion of pop, dancehall, reggae, soul, and trap, with inspiration coming from role models such as Rihanna, Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan, Lady Saw, Ikaya, Buju Banton, and Spice.
