Dancehall superstar Spice has already been making headlines on season 7 of VH1’s hit reality TV series Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
The ‘Queen of the Dancehall” whose real name is Grace Hamilton, is seeking to crossover from Dancehall into the American music industry in the new season.
While explaining her desire to expand into the American Market, Spice told the ladies on set she has outgrown (in doing her music) her country and currently thinking about moving to Atlanta.
This comment sent social media into a frenzy of mixed reactions. The video has already gained 8.5K views on Facebook and 135 comments.
Spice has also come under fire for not speaking patois while on the show to which she responded in a Instagram post.

My introduction to #LHHATL just a quick note Fyi to those of you who keep complaining why I’m not speaking only “patois” I went on this platform to capture a wider audience and to gain more international fans. If I speak patwa that only “Jamaicans” can understand then I’ll defeat the purpose of this opportunity. When miss jamaica goes out to represent the country “ Mi never hear none a dem a chat bad” so why now unu quick fi have a problem when I try to make the audience understand who I am 🤔. Have a Smurferific day 🤪💙💙💙💙 #spiceofficial #Queenofthedancehall #queenofstage #dancehall
The sixth series premiere of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta brought a combined rating of 5.2 million viewers. Season 7 will premiere on March 19 at 8 p.m on VH1.
