Is Sean Paul the king of dancehall?
That is the question a lot of dancehall fans are asking today after Billboard ran an interesting article about Rihanna’s new song “Work” and it’s impact on dancehall.
In the same article, Billboard refers to Sean Paul as the dancehall king, a bold statement that has not been going down well with a lot of lovers of the genre on social media.
For years Beenie Man has bestowed the title upon himself and in recent years fans of incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel regularly voiced their opinion about him being the dancehall king.
“I don’t think the Billboard is right on this one,” Gregory Isaacs brother/manager, Ruddy Isaacs said. “Man like Josey Wales and Brigadier Jerry, those men are the real heroes in dancehall. Man like Shabba Ranks and Ninja Man grow up on the sound systems and deserves credit too, but, for me the real king a still Yellow Man.”
If not Sean Paul then who is the king of dancehall?
