Maxi Priest

Maxi Priest

British reggae star Maxi Priest was one of the most internationally popular reggae singers since Bob Marley. Priest's pop and modern R&B influences didn't exactly endear him to reggae purists, but they gave him strong crossover appeal. At times he strayed too far from his reggae roots to deliver a true stylistic hybrid, but his silky-smooth voice was ideally suited for light, romantic material, and his best music was as sensual as it was soulful. After a string of hits songs in the UK from his 1985 debut album, You're Safe, and its follow-up, Intentions, Priest's breakthrough in the U.S. was a cover of Cat Stevens' "Wild World". This paved the way for his best-selling album, Bonafide (1990), featuring the American number one hit, "Close to You".
