Her 1986 single "Dear Boopsie" topped the reggae charts and reached number 54 on the UK Singles Chart.[4] Her first album, Perfidia, was released in 1987.[3]

She had further hits on the reggae charts in the 1990s with her version of "I Will Always Love You", "Young Hearts Run Free", and "You Are Not Alone".[1] She continued to be in demand for backing vocals, working with Toots Hibbert, and Ziggy Marley in the 1990s.[1] She went on to release a string of solo albums on VP Records.[3]
