The chemistry between Redd, Grey and Spice on the Video God-directed visual is electrifying. The traditional reggae sound blended with the hypnotizing curves twerking throughout the visual amplifies the song’s hit factor and desire for more collaborations between all parties involved in the future. Spice’s voice creeps in setting the tone then Karlie knocks it out reminding us that she is in fact an artist first. Capella Grey, whose personality bleeds all over the beat, marries the track together in a way that shouldn’t work but does.
Honoring her Trinidadian heritage, Karlie Redd is determined to change the current landscape of sound and carve out her space within the industry to deliver undeniably hits continuously.
Before the release of the “Werk” music video, Redd took to Instagram to praise her friend and collaborator Spice with a heartfelt message. “As I reflect upon my present blessings,” Redd wrote with a video of Spice and her celebrating her birthday on an island destination. “I went into a deep depression and a sunken place while trying to keep a smile on my face then Realized How blessed I am to have you in my life @spiceofficial I Didn’t get to post my bestie for her Birthday. Spice, Grace, Gracey & Aunty who wears many hats. Bestie I have never had a friend who stand up for me, fight for me, and have my back like you. I appreciate you so much. You work so hard.

I want to celebrate your birthday everyday. 🥳 please allow me to put together another birthday for you.
