Post Ghetto Revolution

Is it finally time for Dancehall, aka. The Second Most Dynamic Genre in the World™, to break through into the US market in a big way? At #13 (and climbing) on this week's Billboard Hot 100 lies what as far as I know is the first hardcore, non-westernised Dancehall song to ever climb up the US charts, Sean Paul's excellent "Gimme The Light". Will this (and the inclusion of Bounty Killer and Lady Saw on recent No Doubt hits) open up for a flooding of the american market by real, JA-popular Dancehall artists (rather than second-rate softened-up mushy peas along the lines of Shaggy, Diana Kind and with his latest effort also unfortunately Beenie Man)? Could people like Sizzla and Capleton, with their rootsier messages, and increasingly forward-looking sounds, break through? Go US Record buyers!

I have a bad feeling he's talking about "RnB".
