Grammy Award winner and international reggae recording artist, Beenie Man performing live in Arizona! The Hottest Man Alive tour arrives in Scottsdale, AZ April 6 at Ocean 7 Nightclub.
One of Jamaica’s most influential DJ’s, Beenie Man’s recording career stretches back to 1981, although it was in the sound systems where he later made his mark. His true ascent to stardom began in the early 90’s and by 1994 his reputation could not be beat. After headlining Reggae Sunsplash in 1998, Beenie signed to Virgin Records in the U.S.; The Doctor was the first album produced with this new union and was an instant dancehall classic. 1999 brought the King Jammy-produced album Y2K, which never actually mentions everyone's greatest fear that year -- the millennium bug, but does take on a host of other issues from AIDS to illiteracy. And the hit singles just kept on coming, and coming, and coming. Beenie was unstoppable, whether on his own or with other artists, and at times the Jamaican chart seemed to be the DJ's private preserve. "Romie," "Jump and Wine,” "Girls Dem Sugar" and "So Nice" with Silvercat, are just a sampling of the singles the DJ released between 1999 and 2000. The Art & Life album, released in the new century, showcased the DJ at his most eclectic and included guests Arturo Sandoval and Wyclef Jean of Fugees fame. Janet Jackson, the Neptunes, Lady Saw, and Lil' Kim all turned up as guests on 2002's Tropical Storm, the Beenie Man album with the most crossover appeal. 2004's Back to Basics was just that, a straight-up return to dancehall. The hit-collecting compilation From Kingston to King of the Dancehall appeared in early 2005, and Undisputed, which featured production work from Scott Storch and Don Corleon, among others, was released the next year
