Sinead O’Connor-Throw Down Your Arms
Ten Reggae Albums By Non-Reggae Stars

Irish singer Sinead O’Connor, best known for her shaved head and outspoken politics (and also her 1990 cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”), recorded this album of mostly Rastafari-themed covers (including “Marcus Garvey,” among several others by Burning Spear, and Junior Byles’ “Curly Locks”) with Sly and Robbie while recovering from fibromyalgia in Jamaica. Word is Sinead put her money where her mouth was, donating 10% of the profits to support Rastafari elders in Jamaica. Snoop will be wise to follow her example.
