The primary audience for Lovers Rock during its heyday was Britain’s Caribbean community, but the best of its tunes graduated to the broader charts and other countries as well. Janet Kay’s “Silly Games” reached No. 2 on the UK pop charts in 1979, the highest position attained by a Black British female artist at the time.
