A 'Dancehall Queen' was first just a name given to a dancehall fashion Queen.
The first title was won by Carlene Smith in 1991 at the once famous Cactus Night Club in Portmore, St Catherine Jamaica.

The Official competition was started in 1996 by Brian "Big Head" Martin. The Jamaican dancehall queen is now recognized as the official competition used to crown the hottest female dancer in the world.

The competition is now internationally known and attracts dancers from all over the world. This is one of the most anticipated calendar event in Jamaica, which is held at Pier One Montego Bay.

The first foreign winner was Junko Kudo from Japan, who won the title in 2002.
