‘Bald-headed’ Shenseea celebrates as ‘Lighter’ hits 8 million views

Dancehall artiste Shenseea is celebrating eight million views for Lighter, her collaboration with Taurus Riley.

The Taurus Riley and Shenseea collaboration has received more than eight million views since its release two weeks ago.

In a series of Instagram Stories shared last evening, a bald Shenseea, thanks to the power of filters, marked the achievement with a memorable lip sync performance from the comfort of her bedroom.

With the official video released to YouTube on September 6, the song has quickly become a late summer favourite, perhaps spurred by the popular #LighterChallenge which the ‘Princess of dancehall’ launched over a week ago.

The song topped the iTunes Reggae Chart last week and was the most played track in several regional countries including Barbados, St Kitts-Nevis and Dominica.

To mark that accomplishment, the Sure Sure singer shared to Instagram “God is Great 🙏🏽 #1 on Reggae iTunes Chart…..most played song in Cayman, Dominica, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Grenada, Antigua, Barbados big up ShenYeng Everyweh ya man 🐉 DROP YA FLAG anywhere u at,” last Tuesday.
