Dancehall is a dynamic genre that continues to bring forth new talent. Deeply entrenched in dancehall’s rich culture is the ever flowing fountain of female talent; yearly new female artistes emerge with the solid plan of taking over the dancehall scene and hopefully getting a go at the title of “Queen of Dancehall”
