Reggae artiste I Atom is generating a huge buzz with her new collaboration single, 'Ganja Call', featuring dancehall star Capleton which stresses the medicinal qualities and the healing powers of the marijuana plant.  The song has been blowing up FM radio since its release on the Virtuous Voice Production label, on January 7th this year.


"I did my version of the song first and I went to him to do a collaboration and he listened to the riddim and liked it, and he wrote and recorded his verse to the riddim same time. It was a spiritual connection (between she and Capleton), I just prayed about it and went up to David House to ask him to collaborate with me on the ganja song. But I didn't believe it would happen because he is a veteran and his expectation is very high. So when I hear it on the radio, I feel overjoyed and blessed that this collaboration is a reality," I Atom said. 


"The marijuana plant is very powerful and this song is not only to entertain and educate the public about the many medicinal uses of this great plant," she said. 


She thanked Capleton for his mentorship and guidance in the music industry. 


"I appreciate this collaboration song so much. Capleton is a person who I look up to for advice and am so grateful for what he did. I consider myself blessed and highly favoured to have this great father-daughter relationship with King Shango," the artiste whose real name is Careen Hanchard, said. 


Two years ago, she walked away from her job as an agricultural extension officer in the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and entered the music industry as a neophyte. It was a leap of faith for her because she had initially resigned her job with the intention to migrate to the USA where she planned to read for a master's degree in agriculture, and then to pursue a job as an agricultural engineer. But the music bug bit her.  


She was born in the Nine Miles area of St. Ann. As a teenager, she attended Ferncourt High in St. Ann before matriculating to the College of Agricultural Science and Education where she read for a degree in agricultural science.


She did an internship at Rural Agricultural Development Authority and three months later, landed a job at the Ministry of Agriculture before divine intervention set her on the path to pursue a music career as a gospel and cultural reggae artiste. 


"I have a lot of work to do in 2018 and beyond," she said.
