Icey Jaye

Icey Jaye (born Renita Johnson) was a female rapper from the 80s. Not much information is given about her.
In 1988, Icey Jaye released her first single, "It Takes a Real Man" which was an answer record to Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock's hit song, "It Takes Two."
In 1989, she released her second solo single, "Icey (She's Bad)" which didn't appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.
A year later in 1990, Icey Jaye released her third single, "It's Just a Girl Thing" which didn't chart, but a music video was made for the song.
It wasn't until 2004 that Icey Jaye's debut album, "It's a Girl Thing" was finally released. It's unknown how or if it ever charted. After that, it seems that Icey Jaye has faded into obscurity.
