EMERGING singer GiRL intends to shake things up musically with her latest effort Hinges .

Hinges is about women having the freedom to move their bodies, more specifically 'wining',” she told the Jamaica Observer.

Released in July, Hinges is produced by Keerab Records (Addytraxxx and Keelykez).

GiRL shared the idea behind penning the dance track.

“After getting the track from Addytraxx, I looked to see what was out there... I wasn't seeing any 'wining' in these new dances that were emerging. So I said, let me see if I can get the females to 'wine' like dancehall of the 1990s,” she said.

The singer said so far the feedback has been encouraging.

“I've been getting calls and people have been sending me videos via social media. The feedback is the best of my projects so far,” she said.

Hinges has an accompanying video which was shot by Jesane Jackson and Calvin Ellington.

GiRL said she is intent on carving a niche for herself.

“I'm a workaholic. I don't confine myself to any one genre... I would describe my sound as Jamaican spunk with soul,” she said.

GiRL (given name Shanique Brown) hails from Spanish Town in St Catherine. She attended Ardenne High and then The University of the West Indies.

“I was a full-time actress. I was in Dahlia Harris's God's Way and God Way 2. I worked with Fabian Thomas in Tapestry and did several projects with University Players,” she said.

Her other tracks include High, featuring Roe Summerz; and Fly, featuring Kenzic.
