Reggae-Pop / 雷鬼流行音乐

  流行雷鬼在雷鬼摇摆乐中有一定的基础,但是受到强烈旋律,商业性生产和交叉感性的音乐的严重影响。有时,流行雷鬼摇摆乐被一些为了追寻他们声音多元化的乐队所演奏,但是经常被雷鬼摇摆乐的艺术家作为他们的一种流行喜好所演奏。在70年代期间,作为埃里克克莱普顿的雷鬼摇摆乐演奏者与雷鬼摇摆乐试验者相冲突,在80年代早期,整个2-yinTone ska的复兴运动与雷鬼摇摆乐密切结合。然而,直到80年代,当艺术家喜欢UB40,旋涡格兰特时,并且马克西牧场师呼吁创建拥有流行雷鬼摇摆乐的地方,逐渐地在群众中形成了一种流行雷鬼摇摆乐意识。在80年代中期,流行雷鬼摇摆乐首先浮出水面,并且开始盛行,那些以前提到的演奏家也开始吹捧它。在90年代期间,,即使没有没有更多人演奏它,但它的风格样式依旧强盛。

Reggae-Pop has its foundation in reggae, but the music is tempered with strong, melodic hooks, commercial production, and a crossover sensibility. Sometimes, reggae-pop is performed by pop bands seeking to diversify their sounds, but more often it's played by reggae artists with a fondness for pop. During the '70s, such diverse rockers as Eric Clapton and the Clash experimented with reggae, and the entire 2-Tone ska revival movement of the early '80s was closely aligned with reggae. Nevertheless, it wasn't until the '80s — when artists like UB40, Eddy Grant, and Maxi Priest all established a place for it on the charts — that reggae-pop became part of the mass consciousness. Reggae-pop first surfaced in the mid-'80s, and flourished toward the end of the decade, as those previously mentioned artists had crossover hits. During the '90s, the style remained strong, even if there weren't as many crossover hits as there were in the late '80s and early '90s.
