I’m back from sipping mojitos on the beach, rubbing elbows with media and being in the presence of some of the biggest names in the music industry. The 2010 Reggae Sumfest held in Montego Bay this past weekend was a feast for the senses as dancehall and reggae sensations like Elephant Man, Shaggy, Mavado, Beenie Man and countless others entertained up to 50,000 people each day in the Jamaican heat. Things really sizzled when Chris Brown and Usher took the stage much to the delight of screaming female fans who couldn’t get enough of their gyrating six-packs. Both R & B singers put on high-energy performances with Michael-Jackson inspired dance moves that wowed the crowd. They even began recording a song together during their time in Jamaica. OMG!
