Empress Divine Set to Ignite the Stage at Reggae Royals Blazin Concert

Empress Divine, one of Canada’s most versatile reggae artists, is set to dazzle audiences at the Reggae Royals Blazin concert on July 12 at the Diamonds Lounge in Pickering, Ontario. With her deep-rooted passion for Reggae, Rub-a-Dub, and R&B Dancehall, Empress Divine stands out as a formidable presence in the music scene.

The concert, to be held at 2200 Brock Road, Pickering, Ontario, features the sensational Queen Omega and the Royal Souls Band. Doors open at 8 PM, promising an electrifying night of reggae music.


Empress Divine has been a prominent figure in the Canadian reggae music scene for over a decade. She began her journey as a sound system selector (DJ) before transitioning into the exceptional vocalist she is today. Born and raised in Toronto, Empress Divine grew up surrounded by music. After her mother passed away when she was just eight years old, she turned to music as a source of comfort and healing. By her teenage years, she was actively involved in church choirs, school assemblies, and talent shows, eventually becoming a mobile DJ at local parties and clubs.

Her love for Reggae, Rub-a-Dub, R&B, and Dancehall music fuels her songwriting, which deeply resonates with her listeners. Although DJing kept her busy, her true passion was singing. In 2009, she launched her solo career with the release of her first single, ‘Jah Lives’, a reggae rendition of Jazmine Sullivan’s ‘Need U Bad’.

Empress Divine quickly gained recognition in the reggae community. Her single ‘Stop the Violence aka Brap Brap’ received heavy rotation on Rebel Vibes’ top 10 countdown on 105.5 Vibe FM with Carrie Mullings. In 2011, she won the Irie Music Award for Best New Artist, and in 2012, she received the Reggae Xclusive Recognition Spotlight Award for Best Female Singjay/Deejay.

Throughout the years, Empress Divine has collaborated with producer Konsequence Musik, releasing several successful singles. These include ‘Natty Haffi Grow’ on the ‘Tropical House Riddim’, ‘MAMA’ on the ‘To Be Great Riddim pt. 2’, and ‘Sweet Jamaica’. She also released a heartfelt music video for ‘MAMA’, paying tribute to her late mother Annette. Another notable single, ‘Real Friends’ on the ‘Up Like Seven Riddim’, produced by Stubborn Gad Productions, received significant attention and rave reviews.

In her most recent venture, Empress Divine teamed up with fellow Toronto-based artist and producer Black Orchid to release ‘Single Girls Blues’ on August 19, 2022. The official music video followed on February 8, 2023, on YouTube Vevo. The song is available on all major online platforms, distributed by Vpal Music, and has been trending on Audiomack Caribbean.

As Empress Divine prepares to perform at the Reggae Royals Blazin concert, her journey from a young girl seeking solace in music to a celebrated reggae artist serves as an inspiring testament to her talent and resilience. Her powerful vocals and dynamic performances continue to captivate audiences, solidifying her place as a beloved figure in the reggae music world.
