Jackie Queens

Cape Town, South Africa
Zimbabwean born vocalist Jackie Queens has always found freedom in music. With an acquired taste for genre tectonics, Jackie's worldy wise influences have converged to form a versatile and sophisticated singer/songwriter.

Although her voice is best known for house music, her growing catalogue includes collaborations with kwaito/bass producer Moroka (UK/SA) and kuduro inspired DJ Satelite (AO), dreamy drum & bass with Cepta (NZ), rhythmically nasty afro-house with Enoo Napa (SA) and a sizeable backing contribution to North Carolina’s rising hip hop star Well$ debut mixtape, to name a few.

In 2016, Queens’ Sphiwe EP established her bespoke label Bae Electronica, a foray into her first love; black sisterhood. Later that year she teamed up with Cape Town vocalists Bonj Mpanza and Deslynn Malotana in the Red Bull released Girls. The song, which speaks on body positivity and women owning their bodies was a precursor to the next stop in her voyage. Jackie’s new project “Dance It Right” is set for release in January 2017, in a continuation of her desire to inspire freedom and self-renewal, on and off, the dance floor through solidarity in motion and sound.
