Shenseea Is the Connecticut Sun's 2022 Music Ambassador

May 20, 2022 - Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) - Connecticut Sun News Release


Uncasville, CT - Today, the Connecticut Sun announced Shenseea as its Music Ambassador for its 20th Anniversary season.

Shenseea, a Jamaican dancehall singer currently signed with Rich Immigrants/Interscope Records, ascended through Jamaica's dancehall ranks over the span of five years to become one of dancehall's most highly-requested artists. In the time since she became Interscope's first dancehall signing, Shenseea has collaborated with a vast array of artists from different genres such as Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Kanye West, Christina Aguilera, Santigold, Masego, and many more. Most recently in March 2022, Shenseea released her debut album, ALPHA, which includes her single "Lick" featuring Megan Thee Stallion, as well as features from Offset, 21 Savage, Tyga, Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and more.

During the 2022 season, the Connecticut Sun will be using Shenseea's song "Sun Comes Up" off of her debut album as the backdrop to a hype video that will run into the opening sequence of all of Connecticut Sun home games. "Sun Comes Up," an inspirational song about persistence and determination in the face of adversity, in addition to having the organization's name in the title, the song could not be more fitting for the Connecticut Sun franchise as it seeks to take hold of the elusive WNBA championship.

"I'm so excited to be teaming up with the Connecticut Sun with a song that is so close to my heart, "Sun Comes Up," Shenseea remarked. "I am especially honored to be a part of something that supports other strong women, and this collaboration represents everything that I want my music to be-music that empowers and uplifts people."

Since Shenseea arrived on the dancehall scene, she has amassed more than 600 million music video views, 12 million social media followers, 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify. In 2019, she was crowned Billboard's "Fastest Rising Dancehall Artist;" she has reached #2 on Billboard's Reggae Digital Song Sales Chart; and in February 2022, she was named an Apple Up Next artist.

"We are very excited to have Shenseea as our music ambassador for the Sun's 20th Anniversary season! We have been working on ways to use our platform to highlight young artists and bring fans an elevated experience all season long. Having Shenseea work with us is definitely a step in that direction. Her song, "Sun Comes Up," fits us as an organization perfectly, and I can't wait for fans to enjoy the song along with us." - Jen Rizzotti, Connecticut Sun President
