10. The Reggae Revival Made It to Vogue

The growing buzz around Jamaicaโ€™s often-called โ€œReggae Revivalโ€ reached a new level this year when many of the sceneโ€™s leading names were covered in a massive, online digital feature on Jamaica by Vogue. (Whatโ€™s next, Anna Wintour rocking red, green and gold?) While Vogue and reggae are an uncommon pair, seeing the likes of Chronixx, Protoje, Jah9, Kabaka Pyramid and Kelissa featured in a high-profile fashion magazine just shows how much the music โ€” and style โ€” of this new class of reggae stars has made an impact beyond the shores of Jamaica. โ€” Saxon Baird
