Grenique grew up listening to jazz and soul music such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Phyllis Hyman, Cameo, Chaka Khan, and the Average White Band. She started performing with vocal groups as a teenager, but Grenique felt that her ideas would work best as a solo artist.
Two weeks before her 22nd birthday, Grenique headed to New York City and met with entertainment attorneys.
One of them introduced her to producer Dahoud Darien which led to her meeting the president of Motown Records, Kedar Massenberg along with Chico DeBarge and signed her to a record deal. Grenique appeared on the "Rush Hour" movie soundtrack with the song, "Disco."
After that, not much has been heard from Grenique. Her whereabouts are currently unknown.
