When you think about Reggae the first thing comes to mind is Bob Marley right? As he has been credited with being the artist who introduced the world to reggae music.

Two of the first Reggae artists we music mention here are Dawn Penn and Lady Patra

In 1994 Dawn Penn rock the world with her chart-topping single "You Don't Love Me (No No No)". The single charted in the US, Europe, Jamaica and reached number three on the UK Singles Chart.

Patra first made an impression on the US charts as a featured singer on the Shabba Ranks song, "Family Affair", which hit No. 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1994. In 1993, Patra released her debut album Queen of The Pack (#1 on the Reggae albums chart. 

Since then there have been numbers of artists climbing up the ranks making it to the top.

Here are some of the top female Reggae artists:

Marcia, Rita and Judy Mowatt were the backup singers for Bob Marley alongside Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.
