Dancehall is now trending. Worldwide pop-artists such as Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Jamie XX have infused their recent albums with Dancehall's up tempo style. It's rhythm, attitude and rawness have won the music world over. With the advent of this popularity, it appears as though Dancehall artists are now making the visual representation of their art cleaner.
