The multiple JUNO Award nominee singer Ammoye, and the vet reggae artiste Turbulence team up for a new single titled "Stir This Thing" which was produced by Donsome Records and made its debut Friday, October 27th.
"The idea to collaborate with Turbulence came about after I recorded the song. I felt the song would be perfect to have a male artist on the track to bring about balance in perspective around the song. The female and male perspective. I approached Adrian Hanson who produced the track and we brainstormed about who and which artist we thought would be an appropriate fit to compliment my sound on the track. We came down to a short list and Adrian reached out to Turbulence. He sent him the track and he did his thing and we have what we’ve co created together today,” said Ammoye.
Turbulence, on his part, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, "Well, it was indeed a great feeling and untamed talent is on display so I rose to the occasion. I was approached by a master at his craft, a great producer, and when he played me her part of the song, I said this would be a pleasure to be a part of the project".
Turbulence also shared his thoughts on the emotional aspect of "Stir This Thing," saying, "Well for me, I move with a spiritual and emotional attribute towards my missions so speaking for myself, I think once you feel the song as a male, then the emotions will flow,".
Ammoye expressed her admiration for Turbulence's work, saying, "I've always been open to collaborations with artists that I respect in the industry, studying the works of Turbulence and seeing the quality of the content of works he’s created and how intentional he is with his lyrics and vocal versatility. I was honoured to collaborate with this King.”
She went on to explain the unique aspect of their collaboration, saying, "Working with him, it was easy yet interesting because of the fact that I recorded my part in Toronto, and he did his part in Jamaica. The fact that he was able to inner stand the intention of the song idea and without me being there in person to explain it fully to him, he was able to capture the ease of what was needed to complete the song."
This marks Ammoye's second collaboration with a male artist. In the previous year, she joined forces with Kenny Blake on the song "Elevate," which was featured on a project titled "The Moment Collective."

Originally hailing from Clarendon and now residing in Canada, Ammoye hopes that listeners will take away a meaningful message from the song. "The message I’d like people to take away from this song is the reminder to not stay in any relationship that remains stagnant and unfulfilled. If you find yourself in that state at any time it’s your duty to do what needs to be done to stir it up and bring in the flow and loving light-filled energy to create a better conscious, meaningful and flavourful relationship", She emphasized.
