1. One of Beyonce’s biggest singles, “Run The World (Girls)“, sampled Dancehall.

Beyonce’s 2011 single was the anthem for Women Empowerment worldwide, and off the album, “4“. Produced by The-Dream, Switch, and Shea Taylor, the single sampled “Pon De Floor“, a collaborative effort between Major Lazer and Dancehall Icon Vybz Kartel. Beyonce’s single went on to become one of her biggest ones to date, and gave the “World Boss” some writing credit too.

2. Jay Z has rapped over a few Dancehall/Reggae samples.

Jay Z’s from Brooklyn, New York, an area that is heavily populated by Caribbean folks. He must have some sort of Jamaican influence in his songs, right? He has thrown some patois in the lyrics, but singles like “On To The Next One” off his “Magna Carter…Holy Grail” album borrowed a piece of Cutty Rank’s infamous intro off his 1992 single, “A Who Seh Me Dun“. Other samples include Max Romeo’sChase The Devil“, which was featured on “Lucifer“, the late John Holt’sI Will” on “Encore“, Sizzla’sSolid As A Rock” on “Crown“, and Sister Nancy’sBam Bam” and Jacob Miller’sTenement Yard” on “Bam“. Big up the Producers involved.
