About Maxi Priest

British reggae star Maxi Priest rose up through the late '80s and '90s to become one of the most internationally popular reggae singers since Bob Marley. His lovers rock vocal chops, and flirtations with pop and R&B styles, scored him multiple worldwide hits, including the trans-Atlantic chart-topper "Close to You," and a sunny cover of Cat Stevens' "Wild World." Priest's silky-smooth voice is ideally suited for light, romantic material that fuse reggae backbeats with R&B's romanticism, and his most popular work is as sensual as it is soulful.
