Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Sweet voiced Cocoa Tea is a respectable veteran in the business. Born in Rocky Point, Clarendon Parish, Jamaica, Cocoa Tea became popular in the early eighties and since then he has become successful worldwide. Around 2000 he launched his own label, Roaring Lion. He gained notoriety in March 2008 after releasing a song titled "Barack Obama" in support of the US Presidential candidate by the same name.

His brand new single, drawn from the album of the same name, relicks the riddim of the Studio One classic by The Madlads "Ten To One". Here he offers two versions of "Ladies Ball", the "Straight Mix" and the Vibes Mix, honouring all women, esspecially mothers, and inviting them to have a exquisite night at 'The Ladies Ball'. He rides the riddim with flair and ease and the result is a sweet and catchy sing-a-long tune. (Note: The 'Ladies Ball' event is scheduled for February 8 at the Resort World Casino ballroom in Queens, New York, where Cocoa Tea, Sanchez and Richie Stephens are featured acts alongside American soul act Freddie Jackson).
