26/12/2020: “Rude Boy” by Johnny Osbourne

Johnny Osbourne made the transition from old school roots to 90s dancehall very smoothly.

Listen to this 1987 banger and you can see why. He’s got the lyrics, the flow, the voice- the whole shebang!

The riddim is a real corker too, not intrusive but still engaging, using the classic mix of late 80s piano skanks and racing bassline with aplomb.
