Jamaican Music: Genres, Charts and the Impact on the Artists

In the past few podcast episodes, we’ve talked a lot about music. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on those conversations with artists, DJs and fellow podcasters. We all discuss ways to continue to move Dancehall and Reggae music while preserving its foundation...in a sense. How the music has changed, what are the impacts of those changes and the perception of the business? During COVID alone, we’ve looked at everything from Verzuz to artist releasing music, live performance, COVID impact we’re all evaluating and re-evaluating the progression of Jamaican music as it relates to the global music industry and specifically its value. In this episode, I’m exploring how being defined by a genre is perceived, from fusion to music discovery through genres and subgenres.
