Here's some *very rare* video footage of dancehall competions from Jamaica. Those kind of battles opposing "Dancehall Queens" also inspired the 90s self-titled movie. Some of those girls still remain huge icons in Jamaica and overseas, such as Carlene Smith who also made an appearance in the 'Murder She Wrote' music video.

Photography : Wayne Tippets, Kingston circa 1993.
