  While the media and the music industry insiders rave about the "new reggae-pop movement", I personally am not impressed. People are raving about Chronixx, and he has one song that is great but he still comes off as a bit too well-packaged and fake. I used to love  ‎​Jah9, I adore Hempress Sativa, but the movement still doesn't have a defining sound or philosophy that can excite the masses and thus quality as a "movement". First , let me give you a little background.  

JAH 9 who first emerged in 06-07 as a protege of Seretse Small, performing in a largely jazz idiom. She linked up with Protoje, started singing back up for him,mean while the entire underground dub scene started to explode- Nomaddz was first out the box, Willy and Slim gained a bit of notoriety, 9 was on fire with her newly spawned jazz-on-dub genre, along with Protoje, who was originally trying to be a dancehall artiste...

Hempress Sativa is now here. Equally if not more talented and beautiful. Chronixx's album abt to drop.

But as far as authenticity in reggae sound, raging Fyah is really close. Chronixx is a bit plastic-y...Hempress is made of good stuff. Protoje is pretty tame to me.

The other day I saw some one tweet that jah9 a release album every year for the last 5 years and all now dem nuh see nuh album yet.

‎​No new single. And the stuff recorded doesn't sound really much like reggae. So where is the movement? (Shrugs).
