Pick of the Week
“That Girl” by Maxi Priest featuring Shaggy (1996)
You can hear the R&B influence – kind of like a green-onoionish Booker T and the MGs sound running behind this song which is not a surprise really. That was one of the influences underlying reggae in fact this style is often called ‘reggae fusion’.

There is a spontaneity about reggae. It is soulful music that has its origins deep in folk music of sorts.
