Watch Koffee's Refreshing Tiny Desk Concert

Fresh off her historic Grammy win, the Jamaican artist takes to NPR's Tiny Desk for a feel-good performance.

Star Jamaican artist Koffee is the latest to grace NPR's Tiny Desk, and she does not disappoint.

The artist, who appeared to be in a celebratory mood, showed off her dexterous flow as she ran through standout tracks from her debut EP Rapture including "Raggamuffin," "Rapture," and her hit record "Toast"—never missing a beat.

In the spirit of "Toast," the artist expressed gratitude to the audience, as well as her back up singers and band, at various points during the performance. "It's a pleasure for me to see people from different cultural backgrounds come together to make one beautiful thing, so I give thanks for everybody here," said the artist.


She closed her feel-good set with "W," her latest single with rapper Gunna.

Koffee picked up her first Grammy on Sunday for 'Best Reggae Album," making the 19-year-old star the first woman and the youngest person ever to win the category. It was undoubtedly a well-deserved win for the artist.
