With an effortless blend of reggae, R&B, and dancehall, Maxi Priest is one of those artists whose own unique vision has led to tremendous international success. Priest has been tugging on girls’ heartstrings ever since the mid-80s – when he dominated the UK reggae charts with hits like “Should I” and “Strollin’ On” – and was the first reggae artist to have a #1 hit worldwide, including the US Billboard charts.
Priest is the first British-born singer to graduate from the London reggae sound system Saxon Studio International, introducing the sound of lovers’ rock to a global audience. Now, with over 15 million albums sold worldwide, he is the most successful solo act in British reggae history and has earned the respect of fellow artists from all over the world.
