GIRL OF THE MOMENT: Class act Denyque makes the leap to leading-lady status

GLOW ON: The singer, with DJ Nicco, at her recent video premiere party in Kingston.

For years Jamaica has been producing reggae-pop divas with a taste for audacious lyrics and inimitable retro-meets-modern style, while combining effortless sex-symbol aura with girl-next-door appeal. Think Diana King, Nadine Sutherland and Patra. And now, in a pitch-perfect amalgamation of all three, Denyque.

A certified all-Jamaican girl, the 20-something singer has already conquered the local charts, radio and video playlists with her string of infectiously groovy hits ("Make Me Believe You," "Summer Love" among them), and now, with the unwavering support of her fans and mentors, she has her eyes set on conquering new territory.

To match her emergence as a bonafide leading lady in entertainment, Denyque has been transitioning into even more sophisticated endeavours. In June, she debuted a provocative new swimwear line, WetSwim, at Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW), her version of how Jamaican women should look and feel at the beach or the pool party. And buoyed by the largely positive reviews, something tells me there's more where that came from. 

A week later she slipped into celebration mode for the release of her catchy new single "How We Rave" with practically the whole music fraternity showing up at Mercedes Benz to offer support. And sources reveal an album is in the works.

We like Denyque very much here at TALLAWAH. Sporty, classy, healthy and ubertalented, she's a terrific role model for young girls. Consider us intrigued to see what she'll do next. But as far as music and fashion go, rest assured that she'll continue finding exciting new ways of mixing these twin passions. And luckily for her, they remains two staples that will never go out of style.
