International Affair: 5 Reggae-Infused Fashion Trendsetters
The Music: An artist without a generational tie to the West Indies, Alicia Keys began adding a reggae element in 2007 before and during the promotion of “As I Am.” However the songbird pulled it off so well, you couldn’t tell the difference. Keys was featured on Cham’s mainstream hit, “Ghetto Story” during the summer of 2007 and produced a reggae remix for “No One” featuring Junior Reid. She could be spotted the same year performing the remix alongside Reid at the American Music Awards. She also surprised the audience with a special appearance by Beenie Man and Chaka Demus & Pliers who performed their hits as she skillfully rolled her hips alongside the other dancers.
