It has been 20 years in the making, but for new female reggae sensation Chyna Nicole, the wait has been worth the while.

The ever-smiling songbird, real name Tania Williams, has had a colourful career before fully becoming a recording artiste as she once served as a radio personality on ZIP 103 FM. She also worked at various media outlets in New York, namely Showtime Networks, WNET, VP Records, and Westwood Radio One.

However, since signing a management deal with Fitzroy Francis' Mightyful13 Records in April of this year, Chyna Nicole's career has blossomed into something sweet, giving her confidence of a bright future in music.

Her first release, Take Me To The Moon, which was produced by her label, Nico Star Records and Francis, went number five on the New York Top 30, No. 2 on the Tropical TV/World Beat Top 10 Reggae, and number one on the WUMDFM93 Top 10 reggae charts, respectively.

Her debut album, 20 Years in the Making & Readyfor the World, has been number one for the past two months on the New York Reverbnation Top 10 and at 20 on the Foundation Radio Network Top 20 reggae album charts.

The album, produced by various producers including Francis, was released on her label in September.

Chyna Nicole, has also performed impressively at the Vermont Reggae Fest and the Caribbean Billboard TV 21st anniversary show in New York, respectively.

Chyna Nicole holds down a major in radio-TV-film from Howard University, but it is forming notes when in a music boothe that gives her the most fulfilment.

"Music is the way of life. There is nothing one can do without music. It stands second to none in my life," said Chyna Nicole, who also worked as an announcer on Irie FM.

Chyna Nicole was also featured on Mightyful13 Records' tribute album, which was a remix of Cool Operator with Andrew Bees on the Operator2013 Rhythm Velocity, in honour of reggae legends Delroy Wilson and Bunny 'Striker' Lee.
