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.

Previously heard on Kanye West’s 2012 track “Mercy“, Dancehall/Reggae Artist Reggie Stepper’sCu Oonuh” was sampled on the Big Sean featured, “Wassup“! “Cu Oonuh” was produced by the late Winton Riley on the Stalag Riddim, and released on the Techniques label in 1993. “Wassup”, which was produced by 6ix, borrows the legendary intro of the track which was done by Fuzzy Jones. “Cu Oonuh” was also sampled on Lil Wayne and Drake’s “Believe Me“, and The Roots’ “Push Up Ya Lighter“. Logic is no stranger to performing on Dancehall/Reggae samples as Barrington Levy’s “The Vibes Is Right” was sampled on his 2016 track, “44 Bars“.

The Love Thing Goes Bad On @KansHTG & @DaleyHTG’s “For The Low”

Produced by Mxdnight, the duo speak on being deceived. While they do admit their own past mistakes, they were thrown off when a friend was involved in their love triangles. Guess this is a game of “Bun fi bun“, but the Artists do express their feelings on this one. Not nice being put down for the low.
