Walking Out

Reggae singer Lady Saw aims for a higher path

"A lot of people were asking me to sing about it," she says. "It's about my miscarriages. I had two, so I did a song to address that topic. In Jamaica, the entertainers talk a lot of shit and say Lady Saw can't have any children. It's to dis me, in a way. A lot of people call me Mama Saw or the mother of the dancehall, and some artists try to say, 'How can she be the mother of the dancehall when she doesn't have any kids?'" It's a low blow and one that Saw felt she finally needed to respond to in song.

But there's less vehemence in her voice and more positivity about life. She says she's not succumbing to the fickleness of dancehall feuds any longer, and she's more focused on healing and writing her book than squabbling with wannabe dancehall queens. In a sense, Walk Out is the first step in the process.

"I'm not getting caught up dealing with the haters in this world," Saw says with a laugh. "I'm walking out, taking the high road, and for me, that's a good thing."
