LANAE Gillette is trading her tiara and sash for a microphone. Last year, she was crowned Miss Universe Jamaica Northwest in the regional leg of the pageant.

This year, the 21-year-old is again in the spotlight with her single Baddest - ish (Notice).

"The song is not a diss song. I'm really giving notice; basically I'm saying that guys always want to get in your clothes on the first date. So I am telling them to slow down, there's more to females than that," Gillete told the Jamaica Observer.

Baddest - ish (Notice) will be officially released on the Datboi Sanixx/LGC Mossimo/Wilmot Ent labels this month. However, it is already doing the rounds at popular street dances and on the radio.

The up-and-coming deejay is currently in her final year at the University of the West Indies. She reading for a management studies degree. Last year, she topped Miss Universe Jamaica Northwest pageant and was awarded the Miss Congenial title. Her win placed her in the national finals of Miss Jamaica Universe contest. She again crowned Miss Congenial.

She said Baddest - ish (Notice) is not her first recording, but has the most buzz.

"People had always approached me before 2018 but I was nervous about doing it... I voiced my first song, Downtown Boy, last year summer. I didn't follow up because I had school. But now I am ready to go all in," she said.

A graduate of the Montego Bay High School for Girls, the aspiring deejay grew up in the Second City. After leaving high school, she tried her hand at modelling, doing several events at hotels in and around Montego Bay.

"Most of my family members are singers. My aunt, Garsha Hudson, did it professionally for a while both my parents are singers in church, especially my mother. So this is in my blood and I am ready for this new adventure," she said.
