I support bounty killa with regards to the disrespect authentic dancehall artistes are getting with the move by billboard to give Joss Stone Reggae Artiste of the year 2015. Is Joss Stone a reggae artiste? Bill and him Board did indicate that the artiste sold 30,000 copies.. from her recent album ..mi not even know the name of this so called Reggae album.
The birth place of Reggae don't even know who the hell is Joss Stone,, well they might know now Thanks to Junior Gong Marley who inspired Stone to do the album.
I have listened some of the album tracks and I can tell you it WAS NOT impressive... Tessanne Chin would have done a better job. But this British Shakira like artiste has been in pop music for years and has her fan base, this explains why she would sell 30 thousand copies of this crap of an album that got her reggae artiste of the year.
Local Jamaican artistes like Chronixx ..dexta daps and them guys dont have the following like Joss.. but them sound far better than her.. She look better though :)
