Sasha (born Karen Chin, born 1974)[1] is a dancehall deejay.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, she was raised in Brooklyn.[1] Her first big hit was "Kill the Bitch" while she was still well in her teens.[1] In 1998, she wrote "Dat Sexy Body", composed on a variation of the "Bookshelf" riddim, which was later remixed with famous reggaeton artist Ivy Queen.

Her biggest hit is "I'm Still in Love with You" with fellow dancehall superstar Sean Paul.[1]

She has been featured in many albums and dance mixes including Reggae Gold 2002 and Eddie Deejay Arroyo Presents Reggaeton Party Hits.

In the 2000s she started a hair salon business.[2]

She became a Christian in 2008, and stated that she would no longer perform the songs that made her famous.[3]

Sasha now goes by the name Sista Sasha, and is now recording her second studio album/debut Gospel album titled "Chosen". The first single is also called Chosen and it has been released. [4]
