JRโ€™s first foray outside of reggae was an appearance on EDM pioneers Coldcutโ€™s โ€œStop This Crazy Thing,โ€ a track which made it to No. 21 on the U.K. charts in 1988. More importantly, it introduced Reidโ€™s as a voice that could work in any context, setting the stage for his late-career renaissance as a cameo killerโ€”not to mention the worldwide success of โ€œOne Bloodโ€ just one year later.
