Maxi Priest, who has been spreading reggae music across the globe since the 1980s, has rightfully earned his place among other greats such as Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals and Dennis Brown. This is an extraordinary achievement for a singer steeped in Jamaican music, yet raised in South London. Maxi’s joyous brand of reggae and lovers’ rock, infused with r&b and accompanied by real charisma, has brought him a level of success no other British reggae singer can match. He is one of only two British reggae acts (along with UB40) to have a U.S. Billboard #1 hit “Close to You” in 1990, his duet with Roberta Flack, “Set the Night to Music” reached the U.S. Billboard Top 10 in 1991, and his duet with Shaggy in 1996, “That Girl,” was also a hit in the United States, peaking at #20.
