The trio known as Major Lazer has been tapped into the Caribbean since the beginning. Whether they’re sampling Reggae/Dancehall classics, or putting a modern spin on some of the genres, or collaborating with future Caribbean legends, they have opened up a lane for a wider audience. Returning to the scene with a new member Ape Drums (Trinidad’s Jillionaire left the group in 2019 to pursue a solo career), Major Lazer gives us the new album, “Music Is The Weapon” which finds Shenseea, Busy Signal, and Skip Marley as featured guests on the tracks “Tiny“, “Sun Comes Up“, and “Can’t Take It From Me” respectively.

Shenseea, Busy Signal, and Skip Marley are no strangers to International collabs, and Busy Signal has been racking up appearances on Major Lazer projects for a long time. Major Lazer continues to blend genres together and make the whole world dance, and the featured artists help to bring even more vibes. “Music Is The Weapon” is out now!

We Highlight Some Of The Dancehall Artists Who Have Defined The 2010s!


December 31, 2019 marks the last day of the 2010s, and January 1, 2020 will mark the first day of a new decade. It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, but today we look back at some of Dancehall Artists who have made an impact on the scene. With so many hits and moments, we know lists and faves will vary. Before we start, we want to thank everyone who has given our Blog and Social Media a chance since 2012. We’ve featured so many and have assisted in the careers of plenty, we look forward to doing even more in 2020, and beyond. Let’s get started with our lengthy list.

(Editor’s Note: Everyone’s list is different, so if you have a problem with this one…make your own!)

Vybz Kartel

I mean, what’s a list without the “World Boss“? A man who continued to add fuel to the fire of his musical career, long after making his debut in the early 2000s. With his entrepreneurial side blooming with a Shoe line, Liquor line, Nightclub, Merch, to even Condoms, Vybz was everywhere. He even had a Reality TV series, and kept up with quite a bit of controversy too. Despite him being thrown behind bars in 2011 and facing 35 years soon after, it didn’t stop him from recording music, and releasing singles and albums up to this day. Remember his “Freaky Girl” saga? We know you all have a few Kartel tracks in rotation.

Spice

Spice is also an Artist you can’t deny when it comes to this list as well. Spice held it down for the ladies, and showed the men that she can handle her own. With so many bookings, i’m surprised there isn’t a row or an Airline named after her yet. Spice kept the hits coming, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle as well with her “Spicey Couture” store which started growing since opening in 2009. With the help of Social Media, Spice’s brand got bigger, and took a major turn in 2018 when she was made a cast member on the popular VH1 Reality TV series, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Spice welcomed her share of controversy as well which included relationship issues, and the topic of Colorism. With her career starting in the early 2000s, she kept the fire going like her “World Boss” colleague, and got crowned Queen in the process.
