Where Are They Now? ’90s Dancehall & Reggae Queens

March 4, 2016 ‐ By Nneka Samuel

Dancehall and reggae riddims filled the airwaves in the ’90s thanks to singers like Diana King, whose wildly popular music was featured in films like Bad Boys and My Best Friend’s Wedding, and “Queen of the Pack” singer Patra, with her box braids, daisy dukes and unabashed, come-hither lyrics.  If you ever wondered what some of your favorite female dancehall and reggae artists are up to these days, look no further.

Diana King

With her signature short natural hair and her unmistakable reggae fusion sound, Jamaican songstress Diana King slayed the ’90s.  She gave us chart-topping hits like “Shy Guy,” “Say A Little Prayer For You,” and “L-L-Lies.”  Still recording and producing music on her indie label ThinkLikeAgirL, King’s most recent album, AgirLnaMeKING, was released in 2011 via Warner Music Japan (a deal that allowed her to retain 100 percent ownership of her music), and can be found on iTunes and Soundcloud.
