Barrington Levy Live in Utah

In the late 1980’s, Barrington Levy began working with producer Jah Screw, and together they created some of reggae’s most memorable recordings… There was the classic album of Barrington’s greatest hits dubbed Broader Than Broadway, which is one of the best reggae collections ever created. This was released on the pioneering hip-hop label Profile, which helped Barrington to become more recognizable in the crossover market. After a stunning performance on the 1993 Sunsplash, Barrington was signed to MCA Records, but quickly parted ways with the label and began working with Jah Screw to make the Duets album, where Levy teamed with all the hottest DJs from Beenie Man to Lady Saw. He came back larger than life with Bounti Killer on the song “Living Dangerously” – undisputedly the biggest reggae song of 1996, both in Jamaica and the United States, and for months held the #1 spot on the dancehall charts worldwide. Barrington was lifted to the top of the charts, his career in full swing again, and continues to remain at the top of playlists on every radio station in Jamaica, and dancehalls throughout the world.
