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.
