The 1998 album Best of Both Worlds reached the #34 position on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and #180 on the Billboard 200, 2 of 3 singles released from the album became hits on both Billboard R&B and Pop Charts.

Davina is a female artist from Fremont Ca. (East Bay Area) with a musical background and influence from her family making her destined to be involved with music one way or another. Davina began recording choruses for the local rap artists in her region creating a buzz for herself and in time she was presented with an opportunity by Big Tone of Sav It Out Records, presenting Davina’s first solo album titled “The Last Laugh Is Mine” released in 2003. At the time Davina was the first female in Northern California to have an album in the R&B/Rap genre for a Latina/Chicana or a “mess” as Davina would say in her own words, considering she’s a mix of Filipino and Spanish from her Mother and her Dad topped her off with Mexican, Apache Indian, German and Irish. Within a small amount of time the album caught the ears of many female audiences not to mention a solid male audience as well. Davina was proclaimed by her fans as the “Queen of Northern Cali” for her talent and subject matter touching on subjects that most women wouldn’t. She is described as humble and real.
