The Jamaica Observer continues its reflection on the year in entertainment. This daily column looks on the achievers, trendsetters, those who died, and the controversies.

Career-wise, singer Naomi Cowan had an encouraging year. She had two songs on radio, a cover of The Jamaicans' Things You Say You Love and Paradise Plum. She also performed on several high-profile events.

Paradise Plum, produced by Teflon Zinc Fence, was released in May. Featured on a revamped Queen of The Minstrels rhythm, the song topped The Foundation Radio Network (New York) Reggae Chart for several weeks.

“When I first demoed the song, some key people that I sent it to, they said 'put it out now'. So I said, 'alright, let us put it out there'. And, the song just took off,” Cowan explained.

She kept busy throughout 2018, appearing on the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival (Florida edition), Bob Marley Earthstrong Celebrations (Soul Rebel), International Women's Day concert, Tmrw Tday Culture Fest in Negril, Reggae Sumfest, Dub Wise in Trinidad (with Dre Island), Good Day New York on Fox 5, and Tribute to the Legends with Freddie Jackson in Cayman Islands.

Now in her late 20s, Cowan (daughter of singer Carlene Davis and impresario Tommy Cowan), launched her music career in 2015. Prior to music, she studied media in Canada and worked as a host at Much Music in Canada.
