In 1988, Alaine appeared in movie Clara's Heart alongside Whoopi Goldberg.[2] Through the late 1990s and early 2000s, Alaine lived in the United States and did songwriting and singing back up for Rocafella artists such as Cam'ron and Freeway.

She moved back to Jamaica in the summer of 2004 to focus on her own music after working as an investment banker for JPMorgan Chase.

The single is topping the charts in Jamaica and also charts in the UK. Her other singles "Deeper", "Chaka Chaka Love", "Heavenly", "Wine" and "Love Sound", a duet with Beres Hammond are also doing very well.
