In 1996 she was credited for backing vocals on Blackstreet's platinum #1 hit single "No Diggity". In 1999 she made an impressive collaboration to Blackstreet's album Finally, performing on her own the intro of the album - a powerful track that revealed Shaquana's vocal capacity. But things didn't just happened at Interscope and her album never came out. Her years under the mentorship of Teddy Riley made Quana having a lot of connections in the business. Through mutual friends she caught the attention of super-producer KayGee in 2000 and hooked up with Yummy Bingham as Tha Rayne, a duet that then turned into a trio and signed to Arista Records. When Arista folded in 2004, Tha Rayne was lost in the shuffle and their album Reign Supreme was scrapped.
The group remained with Kay Gee's Divine Mill Records after a change in the line-up but they definitely split a year later, in july 2005 and Quana re-concentrated on her solo career. Her still untitled album is to be released in 2008. The title 'Till I'm Thru' (produced by Dre & Vidal) has surfaced on the web as a teaser online single creating a lot of buzz.
