Short for “Cleopatra”, Patra has been the “Queen of the Pack” since day one. With 5 singles in the U.S. top 100 R&B charts (highest placement #20), her prominent reputation was set 2 albums into her career. Having taken several years off since her last release “Where I’ve Been” (2005), Patra is now ready to sit upon her throne once again and woo the masses with her sensual style and captivating voice. While still working on her upcoming project titled ”Patra, the Continuation,” her first leak song “Bad inna Bed,” was unleashed by Sway (of MTV) on his
SiriusXM radio show. The hypnotic baseline and catchy hook have drawn the attention of both new fans and loyal followers, preparing the masses for her next coming.
After establishing herself in Jamaica as an artist, Patra’s debut album “Queen of the Pack” immediately hit the US R&B charts with her first single Think (About It), which reached as high as the 89th spot. She picked up early momentum as a featured singer on the Shabba Ranks song, Family Affair, which hit #84 on the Billboard Hot 100. Later on that year, Patra hit the charts with her follow-up single, Worker Man, off her debut album “Queen of the Pack.” The next two years, she blazed the charts hitting the Billboard Hot 100 three times with her hits
Romantic Call (reaching #55), Pull Up to the Bumper (reaching #60), and Scent of Attraction (reaching #89).
When asked about her long hiatus from the music business, Patra states, “it was important for me to take some time away from the spotlight for a while. Success came at me at a fairly young age, so I decided to take the time to work on my personal development, consider my career moves carefully and learn more about the business side of things. This is why it is important for me now to have a solid team in place; one that cares about the artists and their work. It also explains why I am so excited about the new partnership with LGN Entertainment because now l can look forward to getting back to doing what I have always done!”
Patra is letting the world know that she still carries herself with the stern elegance of a queen, but can put it down when needed! Working hard and getting ready to attack 2012 like it owes her something, Patra is looking to once again regain her spot as one of the industry’s top artists.
