It’s hard to believe Jamaica’s musical influence has spread all the way to Japan! Reggae artists and bands in the “Land of the Rising Sun” continue to gain popularity. They combine Japanese and Jamaican patois lyrics to create a unique hybrid of sounds. It’s truly incredible to hear Japanese singers with Jamaican accents.
Check out, Fireball, one of the biggest bands to hit the scene. They incorporate reggae, dancehall, R &B and pop to produce a versatile style that’s all their own. Listen to their single “残すべきもの”. I’m not sure what it translates to, but the tune’s uplifting melodies and wicked rhythm sure are catchy!
