From Kingston To King
Label: Virgin Records
Beenie Man's earned the right to anthologize: the guy's had a lot of hits. This album isn't an exhaustive exploration of his decades-long career; it profiles the girl-hungry, northward-looking Beenie of recent years, the Beenie whose fan base has grown distinctly more American and whose dancefloor impact ranks as "grinding" at the very least. Use it as a party-starter.
