OLDIES SUNDAY: Lady Patra – Queen Of The Pack (1993)


There are many Queens, but there is only one Queen Patra! Today she celebrates Lady Patra’s birthday, and we honour her on Oldies Sunday by highlighting her classic “Queen Of The Pack” single!

Produced by Clifton “Specialist” Dillon and Tony “CD” Kelly and released through Epic Records in 1993, “Queen Of The Pack” was Patra’s way of promoting female empowerment as she showed that she can stand on her own, is strong, smart, and beautiful, and she runs things! Patra had no problems standing out in a male dominated Dancehall scene, and it paid off for her. “Queen Of The Pack” was one of Patra’s most memorable singles, and was featured on her 1993 debut album of the same name. It was later remixed by Producer Salaam Remi, and covered by Dancehall Artist Destiny Sparta in 2016.

Since “Queen Of The Pack”, Patra went on to release more singles, took some time off from music to complete her degree in History & Political Science, returned with more music, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle with her Chateau 7 restaurant in Kingston. You can shuffle the deck all you want, but the “Queen Of The Pack” will always be on top! Big up Patra, and Happy Birthday!

Today’s Oldies Sunday entry comes from Model/Singer/Actress, Grace Jones. Titled “Pull Up To The Bumper” and produced by Chris Blackwell and Alex Sadkin for Island Records in 1981, Grace’s lyrics were depicted to have sexual connotations and of course sparked some controversy at that time. With lyrics like “Pull up to my bumper baby, with your long black limousine..“, various media outlets refused to play it. It was revealed years later that the lyrics were not meant to have a sexual theme.

On tonight’s episode of Onstage, the legendary Queen Patra was interviewed by Winford Williams. Here she spoke about her reasons on her absence at the BET Awards, the music Industry, not being classified as just being a Dancehall artist, maintaining her fanbase, and her upcoming projects. She even previewed her “Sweet Reggae Music” video. Good to see Patra still doing her thing. She’s still very hot too. I wasn’t aware that she was invited to perform at the BET Awards along with Shabba Ranks but as she said she wasn’t feeling good about the opportunity. What do you think?
