Billboard has selected its Reggae Artist of the Year and before you start to waste your time guessing, we will solve it for you. It is Caucasian British singe Joss Stone.
Kudos to her as she has a huge following but come on this proves our point on the article written a few days ago that the originators have fallen asleep where the genre is concerned. Not only is Stone the Reggae Artist of the Year but she has the Reggae Album of the Year for her Water For Your Soul and right behind her in the second position is Bob Marley and the Wailer’s Easy Skanking in Boston ’78 live album. Need we say anything more about this one.
Where are the young stars, what are they doing? Aren’t there interesting social issue campaign to take on?
