Marcia Llyneth Griffiths (born 23 November 1949; Kingston, Jamaica) is a successful female singer also called the "Queen of Reggae".

Griffiths started her career in 1964. From 1970 to 1974 she worked together with Bob Andy in the group Bob and Marcia, on the Harry J label. Between 1974 and 1981 she was a member of the I-Threes, a background group, which supported Bob Marley & the Wailers.

Her song "Electric Boogie", released in 1976 and re-released in 1989, made the Electric Slide, a line dance, an international dance craze. It reached number 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 making it her most successful single. It remains the highest-selling single by a female Reggae singer of all time. However, it was ranked at #76 on the list of the 100 Worst Songs Ever by Matthew Wilkening of AOL Radio, who questions, "If it's really electric, can we throw this song, and everybody involved in its creation, into some water?"
