She originally came into the industry as a hip hop artist and a beat boxer. She then began to perform as part of a group, “Flavor Unit” which was put together by DJ King Gemini, the producer. He would later on work with her in her solo album as well. By 1989, she managed to sign a record deal with “Tommy Boy Records” and released her first solo record, “All Hail the Queen”. She was only 19 years old at the time. After trying out her luck in rap, she crossed over to other genres as well, particularly soul and jazz. She had experimented with these genres in her previous works as well but had never before been classified as a soul singer. In 2004, she released her first album as a soul/jazz singer: “The Dana Owens Album”. After establishing herself as an artist of many talents, she returned to her roots in hip hop in 2008. She released an album called “Persona” in which she collaborated with a number of other hip sop artists, such as Missy Elliot as well.
