Home / Biography / Des’ree


Setting uplifting tunes of like and modern-city existence to some mid-tempo, hook-laden mixture of reggae, calypso, rap, and English pop, Des’ree reached the top echelon of English R&B. Although she didn’t reach an American target audience with her 1992 duet with Terence Trent D’Arby, “Delicate” (within the U.K. it had been a high Ten strike), her second recording, I Ain’t Movin’ (1994), proceeded to go platinum, led by “You Gotta Become.” The inspirational track spent 80 weeks within the Billboard Sizzling 100 graph. The singer managed her momentum with an American tour in 1995 and performed in the first-ever secular concert in the Vatican. Her pursuing albums — Supernatural (1998), Endangered Varieties (2000), Desire Soldier (2003) — weren’t nearly as effective, though she do retain a considerable pursuing.
