MONTEGO BAY, St James

Montego Bay-based recording artiste RehGeh Queen believes she has the talent and lyrical firepower to become the next breakout star from western Jamaica in short order.

Originally from Black River, St Elizabeth, RehGeh Queen, christened Rushelle Green, who moved to Montego Bay where she attended Chetwood Memorial Primary School and later Mt Alvernia High, says music was always in her blood.

“All throughout school I have always had this dream of pursuing music, growing up I was into listening Elephant Man, Capleton, Shaggy, Vybz Kartel and Sizzla Kalonji. Those artistes really kept my interest and were my early musical influences,” stated RehGeh Queen.

“I have been in the business now for eight years. A big move for me was when I entered Magnum Kings & Queens of Dancehall in season three and finished second. I went on to perform at Sting, Reggae Sumfest Beach Party, Caribbean Girls and Jamfest. Right now, I'm putting in the work to be that next breakout star from Montego Bay.”

RehGeh Queen, who describes her style and delivery as unique, argues that she has the ability to make songs that can connect with not just women, but to men, through her strong lyrical content.

“I believe my time is now, it's now a time for female empowerment and for female artistes to rise. I'm bringing my own style and flavor. I'm lyrically potent and I think Jamaica is ready for new persons on the scene,” she stressed. “Currently, I'm working with a new, energetic outfit called Bad Bad Citizenz Entertainment, and I have a new single out called Inner Feelings, and two other singles – Khaki and Burning – are set to be released later this month. The team is busy and 2019 is going to be a good year for us.”

RehGeh Queen who also expressed dreams of making it big internationally, stressed that she keeps pushing for that big break.

“I would love to make it big internationally and to be that artiste touring and bringing the music and love to everywhere, work with artistes like Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne,” she told the Jamaica Observer West.
