Surinam’s Reggae Queen, Miriam Simone, is no stranger to the reggae music industry.

Over the years, she has released several singles and videos receiving marginal rotation. However, it’s the recent release of her latest track, Dem A Chat, which has scored rave reviews with disc jockeys and the media.

Dem A Chat has been in rotation on Irie FM, Hits FM, and many other stations internationally reggae/dancehall. Hot on the campaign trail, Simone shows no signs of slowing down, having completed approximately 10 radio interviews over the past month with stations such as Island Vibz Radio (St Vincent and the Grenadines), Legend 107 Radio (USA), Hott 107.5 (Bermuda), and TDN Radio (Canada), to name just a few.

Simone’s formal induction to the reggae music fraternity was initiated by the iconic Bobby ‘Digital B’ Dixon, owner of the Digital B music label, which also produces her music. For decades Digital B has amassed chart-topping hits such as Head to ToeWicked Ina BedPeenie PeenieVanity, and Cherry O Baby, working alongside iconic artistes such as Shabba Ranks, Sizzla, Cocoa Tea, Super Cat, Garnett Silk, and others.



Dem A Chat bears the hallmarks of such great production. The feisty single on a hardcore one-drop rhythm, sends a strong message with the opening lyrics: “Si di hypocrite dem a galang deh. Dem a chat, but still dem no know what a gwan.”

To date, Simone has shared the stage with some of the most renowned reggae artistes – Sizzla, Tarrus Riley and I-Octane. She has performed at major events such as Capleton’s show – St Mary We Come From, Trench TownRock, and Tarrus Riley & Friends. She has also collaborated with Jamelody, Fyakin, and has unreleased songs with Sizzla and Capleton.
