Llegar hasta ahí no ha sido fácil y,  después de doce años de carrera, Ivy lo reconoce. Ella ha transformado la música urbana latina, convirtiéndose en la máxima figura femenina del género. Ascendió rápidamente en el movimiento underground cuando en 1995 se unió al grupo The Noise bajo la tutela del DJ Negro.

Su trayectoria solista inicia en 1996 con el estreno de la realización En Mi Imperio. Años más tarde, y luego de esos triunfos y con una sólida carrera en Puerto Rico y América Latina, Ivy se une en 1998 a Sony Discos lanzando The original rude girl, su segunda producción musical. Este álbum incluyó el éxito In the Zone, un dueto con el conocido Wyclef Jean, uno de los fundadores del galardonado grupo The Fugees. Con este éxito, Ive se consolida como la reina indiscutible del rap y del reggeton.

Es la ciudad de New York, en el 2000 donde Ivy se va a vivir y ocupa su tiempo con diferentes proyectos, incluyendo colaboraciones musicales para Tommy Boy Records y columbia Records, y en una compaña publicitaria para el refresco Mountain Dew.  Durante el 2001 y hasta el 2002 Ivy participó en las exitosas compilaciones Boricuas NY, DJ Nelson The Flow, Kilates y The Magestic.
Luego de más de cinco años sin grabar como solista, Ivy Queen se unió al sello musical urbano Real Music Inc, para lanzar Diva, producción que reafirma su poderio musical en el genero urbano. La creadora de temas como “Cuéntale”, “Te He Querido, Te He Llorado” y muchos más.
Bajo su nueva casa disquera Univision Music Group, Ivy grabó Flashback  y Sentimiento en el 2006.
Su impactante voz y gran personalidad quedaron marcados enIvy Queen 2008 World Tour Live, un disco y DVD que cuenta con18 temas y que fue lanzado en agosto de 2008.

Su primer sencillo fue dime, canción que está incluida en el disco en vivo grabado en el Coliseo de Puerto Rico. Este concierto alcanzó lleno total, impactando con esto a la prensa de la “Isla del Encanto”.

Además en este disco incluye temas con importante representantes del reggaetón como son Wisin y Yandel y Ken-Y.

Ivy en la verdadera “Queen” del reggaetón, ya que su trabajo, esfuerzo y dedicación han dado el fruto que ya muchos querrían.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Martha Ivelisse Pesante Rodríguez [note 1] (born March 4, 1972), known as Ivy Queen, is a Puerto Rican-American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She was born in Añasco, Puerto Rico, but later moved with her parents to New York City, where she lived until she finished her public education, before returning to Añasco. When she was 18 years old, Queen moved to San Juan where she met record producer DJ Negro, who helped her gain performing spots with a group called “The Noise” at a local club. There she performed her first song “Somos Raperos Pero No Delincuentes”. The Noise gained much attention due to their violent and explicitly sexual lyrics. Queen went solo in 1996, and released her debut studio album En Mi Imperio which was quickly picked up bySony Discos for distribution in 1997.
