Ivy Queen is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, rapper, actress and record producer. She first gained attention as a member of the Noise in Puerto Rico. There, she performed her first song “Somos Raperos Pero No Delincuentes” (We are Rappers, Not Delinquents). Queen went solo in 1996, and released her debut studio album En Mi Imperio (In My Empire) which was quickly picked up by Sony Discos for distribution in 1997.
She later released The Original Rude Girl, her second studio album for Sony label, which spawned the hit single “In the Zone”. However, Ivy Queen did not rise to fame until she moved to an independent record label to release her third studio album, Diva in 2003. Queen’s albums Diva, Flashback and Sentimiento have all been awarded Gold and Platinum record status by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Her seventh studio album Drama Queen was released in 2010, and spawned a top ten single “La Vida es Así”. It was followed by the Grammy Award-nominated Musa in 2012. Queen’s recordings often include themes of female empowerment, infidelity and relationships, and she is often referred to as the Queen of Reggaeton.
