The World of Reggae Music–Superhits: Popular Reggae

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector explores the most popular reggae hits. Pop Reggae helps to bring people from mainstream pop music to the reggae genre. The famous British selector David Rodigan, for example, became infatuated with reggae after hearing Millie Small performher megahit “My Boy Lollipop.”   That’s where this selection of popular reggae hits begins with the 1964 international ska hit from the Jamaican singer Millie Small. And like the famous ska artists that achieved international fame in the 1960s, the modern dancehall artists Sean Paul and Shaggy have appealed to pop music fans of the 1990s and 2000s, and their albums opened doors for music fans to explore more reggae music. These artists hook new reggae fans and trigger them to explore deeper into the reggae catalog. So this selection focuses on the reggae superhits like “Pass The Dutchie” and “Here Comes The Hotstepper” that were popular in the mainstream and prompted music lovers to listen to more reggae.
