Adassa owes her multinational appeal in no small part to her upbringing. She was born in Miami, FL, to Afro Colombian parents, but relocated shortly thereafter to St. Croix, Virgin Islands. She was exposed from a young age to a wide array of musical styles and languages. Adassa has toured alongside Daddy Yankee, Pitbull, Ivy Queen, Don Omar, Lil' Flip, Lil' Jon, Kevin Little, Vico C, Baby Rasta & Gringo, Wisin & Yandel, Nina Sky, Sasha, Baby Bash and Juvenile among others. She also made high-profile cameo appearances with Ciara and Missy Elliott on "1, 2 Step" (Don Candiani Reggaetón Remix), with Pitbull on the title track record off of her second album Kamasutra, and alongside Tego Calderón and Roselyn Sánchez. She was also successful in Europe with the song " Bounce" (duet with the Turkish pop star Tartan). Her single "De Tra" reached #40 on Billboard charts and she is currently promoting her new single in Europe "Dancing Alone" released in 2013 through Universal/Tough Stuff Music- http://toughstuffmusic.com.
