    Mr. Vegas

    Since the late ‘90s, Mr. Vegas has been a name brought up in any conversation about dancehall. Staying current for two decades is not any easy task in any genre, and especially not one that moves at a pace as fast as dancehall, but Mr. Vegas continues to be on top of his game. Usually artists have to alter their sound in order to keep up with the changes of the music industry but somehow Mr. Vegas has stayed true to himself.

    His breakout single “Head High” delivered a message that was the complete opposite of what Akinyele’s hit song ("Put It In Your Mouth") was telling girls to do and yet almost twenty years later, it’s still a major hit (probably because the message went over everyone's head). Even with such a long career and so many hits under his belt, Mr. Vegas continues to put out singles each year that get consistent spins.
