About Ms Thing
When her first single hit she was only 17 and just graduating from cosmetology school. She considered sticking with braiding and cutting hair for a little bit, but Jamaican radio couldn't get enough of the sassy and quick-witted Ms. Thing and she had no choice but to become a dancehall superstar. It was while performing at a Baby Cham album release party that Ms. Thing caught the eye of producer Dave Kelly. A couple of minor tracks were recorded for Kelly before the producer teamed the young singer with Beenie Man for the soon-to-be-massive "Dude." The "Get That Money" and "Regular" singles followed and when they went Top 10 in Jamaica, Ms. Thing finally quit her day job. Hailed as the new Lady Saw by the dancehall magazines, expectations were high when she released her debut, Miss Jamaica, in August of 2004.
