Dancehall music came out of the dub and roots music that originated in the dancehalls of Jamaica in the mid 1980s, it had faster rhythms and featured more popular themes and lyrics of everyday people and life. Some of the early dancehall artists were people like Yellowman, Sugar Minott and Don Carlos. Modern day dancehall music has been celebrated worldwide with artists such as Beenie Man and Buju Banton, becoming a mainstream genre as Reggae music continues to influence the soundtrack of life around the world.
