Patra - Dancehall Artiste

Patra is the stage name taken by Dorothy Smith, a dance music and reggae singer born on January 22, 1972 in Kingston, Jamaica. She first made an impression on the US charts as a featured singer on Shabba Ranks's song Family Affair, which hit #84 on the Hot 100 in 1994.

Her first solo recording, Worker Man, peaked at #53 later that year and hit #1 on the US Dance chart. Her second single, "Romantic Call" (#55 US, #21 US Dance), was a collaboration with rapper Yo-Yo. Her debut album, "Queen of The Pack" (#1 on the Reggae albums chart) also featured the huge hit single, "Think (About It)" (#21 US Rap, #89 US Hip Hop). Her sophomore album, "Scent Of Attraction," sold slightly less but - hitting #2 on the Reggae albums chart - was still a success. The biggest hit was a cover of Grace Jones's "Pull Up To The Bumper" (#60 US) and the sensual title track, featuring R&B musician Aaron Hall. (#82 US) She took a lengthy haitus from the music industry in 1996 but resurfaced nearly ten years later with her third album, "The Great Escape."

See you in Jamaica.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each
time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Thank you!

I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you
ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I'd definitely
appreciate it.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and
all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals
or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
this site could undeniably be one of the greatest
in its field. Superb blog!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never
understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.
