‘Jah Is So Good To Me’ is Alaine’s latest video single directed by Nisha Rebel.

The number of female artistes with chart success in the international Jamaican music industry has exploded over the past ten years but few have had as many #1 hits as songwriter musician ALAINE. From her first  #1 in 2006, Ordinary Love, ALAINE continues to build bridges around the world with her music.
ALAINE recently made her second successful trip to East Africa, this time performing in Kampala, Uganda for a sold out Pepsi sponsored show along with Konshuns.  The Jamaicans rocked the Lugogo Cricket Oval as 45,000 lucky fans made it into the venue leaving another 10,000 patrons outside.
