D Fancey ready for the spotlight
D Fancey

UP-AND-COMING dancehall artiste D Fancey has a natural affinity for music.

"From as early as I can remember, music has always been a part of my life. When I was a child there was always some kind of music playing in the house. Music has played a therapeutic role in my life so choosing a career in music was a very easy choice for me," explained the artiste.

The deejay says it's time for females to play a bigger role in the music industry.

"I'm happy to see that there are a lot of female artistes doing well in the business but I'd love to see women playing a much bigger role in music. I think the time has come for more women to get involved in other areas of the business, including music production, artiste management and publishing," expressed D Fancey.

She recently teamed up with veteran deejay Joseph Stepper to remake his iconic 1990s hit, Wife.

The new-version song, which is titled Still Wife, was produced by Britlake Records on the Art A Dancehall rhythm and released in August.

"I'm honoured to be featured on this iconic dancehall song with Joseph Stepper; he is one of the foundation dancehall artistes of the 90s. This is a good look for my career," she said.

D Fancey, given name Debra Henry, hails from Seaview Gardens in Kingston. She's a past student of St Andrew Technical High School.

D Fancey launched her recording career in 2021 with a single titled Never Give Up on the Shot Stunning Production label.
