Jamaican television top entertainment personality Anthony Miller, describes her as “Hard Not To Love” and this best reflects Denyque‘s goal – to make the world fall in love with her and her music. Although she’s from Jamaica, the home of reggae and dancehall music, Denyque is considered a pop artist as her music borrows different elements from various sounds including R&B.
Denyque’s, “How To Rave” produced by Mini of E5 Records in 2014 was yet another hit for the Supergirl. Denyque is focused on putting together a compilation that will appeal to an international market and has already decided that her singles “How To Rave” and “Make Me Believe You”, which made top ten charts in more than 10 countries across the world will be the included on the EP.
The passionate performer got her foot in the proverbial door in 2009 when she recorded her first single “Can’t Breathe” in 2009. Since then, Denyque has grown tremendously and has firmly stepped into the entertainment stratosphere under the guidance and watchful eye of her manager and industry big-wig, Jade Lee. Lee who is responsible for jump starting Denyque’s career and was instrumental in the singer picking up one of Jamaica’s most prestigious accolades – the Excellence in Music (EME) award for Best New Artiste 2010 and The Manchester People’s Choice Award in 2014, Lee was also behind Denyque’s debut on the African continent which saw her performing for more than 4000 fans in Kenya.
It doesn’t stop there, the singer has also been nominated twice in the category “Young Hot and Hype Female of the Year” for the annual Youth View Awards 2011 and 2012 (the teenage award show in Kingston, Jamaica), and in 2015 nominated in three outstanding categories, “Young Hot and Hype Female Year, Female Fashion Icon of the Year and Favourite Local Female Artiste of the Year”. She experienced grand stages such as Reggae Sumfest, where she shared the stage with the number one female Hip Hop Artiste, Nicki Minaj. Denyque is no newbie to putting on a show. In 2014 she was selected to be a guest judge on Jamaica’s TV talent show Rising Stars and also capped the job for the Jamaica’s Premier League Football (soccer) Competition as their live TV host.
Already listed as one of Complex Magazine’s “Top 25 Sexiest International Singers”, Denyque has not only been honing her sound, but also her image. This confident risk-taker has always taken an experimental approach to her image and is not afraid to reinvent her look to channel her current style.
Denyque’s most recent single “Ring the Alarm” produced by international dancehall multi-platinum artiste Sean Paul is promising big things for 2015 and beyond, where the official video and upcoming EP will set the tone for an indelible future.
