Jamaicans on twitter and elsewhere speaking out against Grammys best reggae album going to northern Virginia band Soja and not to Spice , Sean Paul, or other nominees

Others aren’t surprised. Grammys are notorious for not reflecting critical or popular consensus

It is entirely unsurprising but nonetheless worth speaking out against.

I go back and forth with awards shows in general: I resent that we have to talk about them every year as if everyone who knows anything doesn't know they're a joke but at the same time can't entirely deny that there's an audience they reach and that could therefore be theoretically exposed to worthwhile stuff.

Just discovered this. Syrupy dub reggae from Puerto Rico, just adding a coating of varnish on the classic sound.

Spice, Queen of Dancehall returns to the Billboards in Times Square in promotion of Spotify’s EQUAL Campaign. The streaming platform’s playlist entitled EQUAL features the voices of prominent women from around the world. Seen as one of the leaders in the streaming space, the playlist offers more visibility to women.

Gracing billboards in New York’s Time Square, Spice amplifies the messaging that female creatives should be treated as equally as their male counterparts. In Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square, Spice will be re-featured in time for her PRIDE performance live on Friday June 24th that officially opens the weekend celebration in Toronto.
