.@TootsMaytals & @TheEnglishBeat Music Featured In @911OnFOX Episode!


That sweet Reggae music continues to seep through some of your favourite shows, and it won’t stop anytime soon. Recently, the 3rd season of the FOX TV show “9-1-1” premiered, and fans of the show were overjoyed. With stars like Angela Bassett and Jennifer Love Hewitt, the series follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: Police Officers, Paramedics, Firefighters, and Dispatchers. On the premiere episode, viewers got a double dose of Reggae as Jamaican Band Toots & The Maytals and UK Band The English Beat’s music were featured.

Toots and The Maytals were the first to bat as their classic track, “54-46 Was My Number” was featured in a scene, then The English Beat’s “Doors Of Your Heart” followed soon after in another. “54-46” was released in 1968 and 1969, and produced by Leslie Kong. It has been sampled by Rapper Foxy Brown, Major Lazer, and Christiana Aguilera. “Doors Of Your Heart” was released in 1981, and was featured on the Band’s Sophomore album, “Wha’ppen?“.
