Spice’s fanbase is growing rapidly thanks to her appearances on VH1’s hit reality TV show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

The recording artiste currently has over 2 million followers on Instagram, the most ever for any Jamaican entertainer alive. However Spice doesn’t want her new followers to forget that she is the Queen of Dancehall.

In a recent Instagram post, Spice moved to educate her American fans who might not know about her two decades in the Dancehall industry or about the genre.

“Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1970s,” Spice wrote. “Initially, dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style, which had dominated much of the 1970s. In the mid-1980s, digital instrumentation became more prevalent, changing the sound considerably, with digital dancehall (or “ragga”) becoming increasingly characterized by faster rhythms. Key elements of dancehall music include its extensive use of Jamaican Patois rather than Jamaican standard English and a focus on the track instrumentals (or “riddims”).”
