Born Chinsea Lee in Kingston, Jamaica, Shenseea grew up singing in her church’s choir, performing Whitney Houston’s “The Greatest Love of All” at age 8. “That was my first audience,” she recalls, "but I didn't stay to hear the feedback because I was so shy.”
Her introversion didn’t keep her from pursuing her passion; she thought she would eventually become a soul singer. But that changed in high school once she heard the explicit lyrics of Spice, Lady Saw and eventual collaborator Vybz Kartel on the bus.
While singing along, she discovered that her distinct, commanding vocal tone matched perfectly with the genre’s ruggedness. She immediately knew that dancehall would be where she thrived, and even though her mom wanted her to be a flight attendant, she prayed that she would be an international star. Eager to enter the industry, Shenseea became a promoter for Jamaica’s Romeich Entertainment in 2015 while still a high school student.
At the same time, she started posting freestyles and covers of Young M.A’s “OOOUUU” and Tink’s “Treat Me Like Somebody” on social media; once the company’s CEO, Romeich Major, saw them, he signed her as his first female artist in 2016. “He told me, ‘I think you could be the next big artist,’” she says. “My response: ‘Mmm, me too enuh!’ That same year, I just... buss!” -- Jamaican patois for “big break.”
Shenseea’s entry into Jamaica’s music scene was “Loodi,” her 2016 collaboration with legendary dancehall star Kartel that immediately put her on the radar of his fans. She kept the collaborations coming, working with Bunji Garlin (“Big Bad Soca” remix), Nailah Blackman (“Badishh” and “We Ready”) and Christina Aguilera(Liberation’s “Right Moves),” the latter of which was arranged over email two years before the track was ever released. “At the time, we were like, ‘Nah this looks like fraud,” Shenseea says. “I literally wrote [my verse] without even hearing the song, we just took a leap of faith. I'm a big fan of Christina, especially her songs on Burlesque -- I just can't reach her notes!”
It wasn’t until the end of 2018 though that Shenseea truly had her breakout moment, thanks to her self-described new national anthem for Jamaican ladies, “ShenYeng Anthem,” which has raked in 6.1 million U.S. streams since its release, according to Nielsen Music. “Some people didn’t see the potential, but it gave me my own lane,” Shenseea says of the track, which receives deafening screams when she performs it live. “I'm not just a pretty face, I'm an entertainer. You get me?”
