Davina

Davina (born Davina Bussey in Detroit, Michigan on December 31, 1966) is a female R&B singer.

Before her singing career, Davina worked as a recording engineer and ran her own dance music record label. Davina released a few solo singles from 1983 to 1994 before releasing an album.
In 1997, Davina released her first single from her upcoming album, "So Good" which became her biggest hit to date, peaking at #60 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #23 on Billboard's Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

The song was the theme song for the movie, "Hoodlum" and rappers Raekwon (from the Wu Tang Clan) and Xzhibit appeared on remixed versions of the song.
A year later in 1998, Davina released her debut album, "Best of Both Worlds" which peaked at #180 on the Billboard 200, #7 on Billboard's Heatseekers albums chart, and #34 on Billboard's R&B albums chart.
Davina's second single, "Come Over To My Place" peaked at #81 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #38 on Billboard's Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. After that, it seemed that Davina faded into obscurity.
These days,  Davina continues to perform. In 2007, she released her second album in 9 years "Return to Soul."
