Hello mami.. Can I speak to Bobbi

Yessssssssss guess who’s back?! I’ve always been a Patra stan from the age of 12 lmao I was ratchet, I cut every pair of  black biker shorts I ever owned into little “pum pum” shorts bought 5 packs of jumbo braid hair and voila I was a mini patra, Her music was never really appropriate for my age but nevertheless its not like anyone around me could understand what she was saying anyway so it wasnt a problem. She has a new single  out titled “Come ova” featuring Delus. very sexy video! I’m excited for her return!

Patra’s music is still sexy, but its toned down and matured appropriately, she says. “Now I keep the batty draws in the drawer. I don’t need to expose anything but my talent. I have more values than all of that. I don’t have to worry. I am a true island girl. Im spiritual and low maintenance. It’s important to be more spiritual and focused in your business”. Loving it, growth is a beautiful thing. The diva known throughout the world as patra was born Dorothy Smith, the second of five children and the only daughter of jamaican parents. born in kingston and raised in westmoreland parish, Patra and her brothers were raised by their mother after their father died when Patra was only three years old. Like many north american divas, some of patra’s first public singing engagements were as part of her church’s choir.

Patra, who has been on hiatus for a few years, is back with new management, A&R Executive/Producer Rich Nice and an album slated for release this summer. In a recent interview with the Jamaica Observer, Patra stated the following about her return, “I’m a sex symbol and I am ready to give a show. I am back with a new mature edge. It is not about going on stage and spitting lyrics. 2012 will see the return of the ‘Queen’ in full force.”

The dancehall artist first achieved success in 1994 when she was featured on Shabba Ranks single “Family Affair” which peaked at #84 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She followed up with “Worker Man” which also peaked at #53 on the Hot 100 chart, the Top 20 on the R&B chart and #1 on the U.S. Dance chart. Her second single, “Romantic Call,” a collaboration with emcee Yo-Yo, also did well. Patra recorded her debut album Queen of The Pack, which featured the hit single, “Think (About It)” and sophomore album Scent of Attraction, both of which did very well. However, her biggest hit was the remake of Grace Jones’ “Pull Up to the Bumper.”

Delus, who has been busy promoting single “What Tomorrow May Bring,” states “I liked working with Patra on this project and hope there will be another opportunity to work with her in the near future. Dameon was instrumental in making the connection and I am really grateful for his support. I hope the single will resonate well with fans and based on the initial response, I think it will.”
