The Caribbean’s Music Industry

The beauty of a woman’s body, a man’s dream

By Jermaine James

Jamaican Music, Mainly reggae has a very wide audience And artists like Bob Marley, Sean Paul, Shaggy and Beenie Man has done a lot to push Jamaican Music. There are many types of Jamaican Music, for every type of mood you might be in there is a type for you to flow with. Unlike Soca Music, Soca Music is a party music and if your not in the mood of parting or jumping up, you may want to leave it for a later time. Jamaica’s street version of Reggae is called dancehall, and Dancehall music in my opinion has faded into a realm of violent and sexual contents.

With some of Dancehall’s most popular artists like Vybz Kartel, Bounty Killer, Aidonia ect., the music these artist produce are usually very popular in Jamaica and internationally but are full of violence and strong sexual contents. These songs are frequently band from the air but are still played in street dances and clubs all over the world. The artists usually produces an explicit version of certain songs, that way the clean versions get air play and it ends up promoting the explicit version that plays on the street.

I think that the government should place a ban on all songs that have explicit versions because the bans they are placing can easily be avoided by doing two versions of a song. I personally love the music but its going too far now in terms of the explicitness. Gone are the days when love and peace are broadcast-ed on the air.
