Priscilla Renea Hamilton is an American singer and songwriter. She is signed to Capitol Records,[2] and her debut album, Jukebox, was released on December 1, 2009 but failed to garner success.[1][3] Her second album was expected to be released sometime in 2011, although no official release details have been announced. As a songwriter, she has written for Demi Lovato, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Cheryl Cole.

Early life

Renea was born in Vero Beach, Florida in the United States on September 14, 1988. Renea's father was a member of the Navy.[4] Renea has stated that she began singing at age two but wasn't comfortable with singing around people until she was older.[1][3] She disliked music that she heard on the radio so decided to write songs that she liked, and that she wanted to hear. She later stumbled upon YouTube and began posting videos of her singing in her room. She recorded videos of her self singing the dictionary, and made her own songs Independently.[1][3] Her channel eventually received over 30,000 subscriptions and she was given the opportunity to participate in MTV's Say What? Karaoke.[3] Renea received an abundance of radio airplay as a number of radio programmers believed the song was performed by Rihanna.


The album was due for an October 20, 2009 release but was delayed for additional recording to occur. The album was preceded by the single "Dollhouse", which was released on August 18, 2009. The single failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100 but did reach number eleven on the Heatseekers singles chart,[5] number thirty-one on the Hot Dance Club Songs [6] becoming a mild chart success.

Renea's debut album, Jukebox, was released on December 1, 2009. The record sold a mere 1,200 copies in its first week and failed to reach the Billboard 200. However, it did reach number twenty-three on the Billboard Heatseekers album charts, staying on the chart for one week.[7] The album has sold 3,000 copies to date in the U.S. and 5,000 copies to date worldwide. Regardless of its commercial failure, the album was critically acclaimed.[8]

The second and final single, "Lovesick", was released on March 2, 2010 but failed to chart completely.[9]

Renea co-wrote four songs (including the UK number-one single "Promise This" and the UK top 10, California King Bed" a track from Rihanna's fifth studio album, Loud, released in November 2010.

She continued her songwriting career, landing credits on 2011 and 2012 albums by Rihanna, Madonna, Mika, Demi Lovato, Chris Brown, and Selena Gomez & The Scene. ↔↓#
