Lady Saw

2003 Grammy winner Lady Saw catapulted to fame in 1993 with raunchy hits such as "If Him Lef (A No Mi Pussy Fault)" and ribald live performances featuring several simulated sex acts. On Strip Tease, her most consistent album to date, she bumps and grinds her way through raw tracks like "Thug Loving" and "Do Me Better," but also bares her lyrical versatility on the tender ballad "Dedicated To Mama" and the pop-flavored "My Dreams." With her gritty delivery and relentlessly risqué rhymes, Jamaica's original rude gal celebrates her sexuality throughout Strip Tease and assures her female followers it's acceptable for them to do likewise.
