Admittedly, the title to Jamaican Me Crazy is a little cheesy, yet, up and coming Hip Hop R&B artist’s latest single is anything but. The R&B beat to Jamaican Me Crazy is kept fairly simple for an instantly accessible rhythmic feel. But what will really grip you with Justin Ragland’s latest up-vibe single is his approach to seamlessly mixing Hip Hop with R&B and Reggae. Whilst there may be many artists who blend elements of the genres, the Kennesaw, US-based artist uses the authoritative attitude of a Hip Hop artist combined with the romanticist tendencies which you’d expect from an R&B Soul artist. The result? A salaciously sweet infusion of fresh urban soul.
