She rode into the playlist of many with her collaboration with Grammy-nominated Devin Di Dakta. But the chart topping “Rev out di RR” track was not her first.

Renee Elizabeth Reid, formally ‘Double R/RR’, has worked with the likes of Stonebwoy, Sizzla, Colton T and Mavado.

Most recently, RRE ventured into reggaeton with her latest single, “LOCO” featuring Maldonado. Her sassy style and unique sound have peaked the interest of listeners who want to know, who is RRE?

Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste attended the Queens Prep School then moved on to The Queens School. She then pursued her tertiary education at the University of Technology.

As a child, Renee wanted to become a flight attendant and a head of sales manager for any global company but she could not shake her deep desire to become a star. During those years, she was an active participant in music, dance, and theatre.

So, her decision to follow a musical path was a no-brainer. Influenced by the likes of Beyonce, Bob Marley, Mary J Blige and Rihanna, RRE describes herself as “sexy raunchy and unique, with an edge of sophistication”. Her most memorable experience to date in music was shooting the video for the single ‘Crazy in Love’, in Miami, Florida, alongside Movado.

Even with these achievements, her dream is to experience real girl power through a collaboration with Beyonce and Rihanna.

According to RRE, “Winning and being nominated for a Grammy. Having my songs hit the Top 10 Billboard charts. Touring the world with family being debt free and living a happy peaceful life and everyone surrounding me living the same life, is my life’s goal”.

Offstage, Renee enjoys traveling and spending quality time listening to new music and dancing. Now working on her EP set for release in early 2019, the artiste is currently enjoying the traction of both summer singles, ‘LOCO’ and ‘Cater To You’ now in radio rotation.

RRE wants her fans to know that she is a captivating and determined female artiste that wants her voice to resonate among her peers and those around the world.

She explained, “I am open to diving into different markets and fusing my reggae culture with other international artists. I am an independent artiste working two jobs to fund my passion in the entertainment industry.” 

RRE’s singles are available on all digital platforms.
