Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Singer/Actor/Producer/Former Media Personality, Peter Lloyd! Titled “Dancehall Queen“, this was produced by Handel Tucker, and released through InPhyniti Records in 1991. In the song, Lloyd gets into storytelling mode where he speaks about attending a street dance when he met a young lady who seemed to stand out from the rest. He dubbed her a “Dancehall Queen” and went into conversation with her professing his interest in her. The single was also featured on his 1999 debut Album, “Transitions“.
“Dancehall Queen” was a hit for Peter Lloyd and with his talent, he was heralded as an Artist to watch out for Internationally. Since his hit, he has went on to release more music and toured, and padded his acting portfolio with appearances in the TV series “Royal Palm Estate”, Disney’s “Return To Treasure Island”, and the Spike Lee Joint, “The Mighty Quinn”. For the older readers, you will remember him from the JBC/TVJ programs like “Morning Time”, “Man Talk” with Leahcim Semaj, and “Man and Woman Story” with the late Christine Hewitt. Despite having a few more hits to his name, “Dancehall Queen” will continue to be Peter Lloyd’s signature tune.
THANK YOU PETER LLOYD FOR THIS TIMELESS SONG!
