Maxi Priest is a British reggae vocalist of Jamaican descent, best known for singing reggae music with R&B influence, otherwise known as reggae fusion. He became one of the first international successes who regularly dabbled in the genre and one of the most successful reggae fusion acts of all-time. Priest’s joyous brand of reggae and lovers’ rock, infused with charismatic R&B have brought him a level of success that no other British reggae singer has matched.
With four decades of smash hit songs, sold-out tours and inspirational messages, Third World is more than just one of the top Reggae bands of all time, it is an institution that stands for producing and performing music that, while holding firm to the cultural and ancestral roots of its members, still pushes forward the cutting edge of music worldwide. It is an institution whose themes are positive, progressive and internationally relevant.
