Busy Signal Essentials

Busy Signal Essentials

Busy Signal's rapid-fire delivery, tough persona, and powerful stage presence make him one of the leading artists in modern dancehall. Born Glendale Gordon, he took his stage name from his fast-running lifestyle. As a lyricist, he pulls no punches; the 2007 single "Jail" was about his incarceration on drug-related charges. On the softer side, he's done some smooth R&B covers of songs by The Commodores and Phil Collins. He served another jail term in 2012 but came back strong, guesting on No Doubt's Push And Shove that year.
