PATRA To Release Comeback Album This Summer!
After a seven-year hiatus from the music scene, Dancehall diva Patra—real name Dorothy Smith—is ready to return to the spotlight. “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,” she said.
Patra, whose 1993 debut album Queen of the Pack shot to number one on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart, said her absence was a well-needed break.
“I have turned down several shows, so it was not a matter of me not getting calls for events. I was tired and suffering from depression as I wanted to get out of my contract and, to me, the process was crawling,” she said.
The “Pull Up To My Bumper” singer is currently being managed by A&R Executive/Producer Rich Nice and will release her yet to be titled fifth studio album this summer.
