Jamaican-born Hollywood actor Marcos James says he hopes more dancehall and reggae acts will use their influence in more positive ways.

I think Jamaican music has become much more accessible globally and with that the image of dancehall has changed. It’s more polished and Americanized. More and more artists are signed internationally, so there is now a hip hop element incorporated into dancehall (music), he told World Music Views.

On the other hand, some artists here (in America) also go to Dancehall, so there’s kind of a trade going on. Hopefully we can focus on positive music for young people. We have to be careful to foster a positive society and this is how I hope Jamaican music evolves.

An alumnus of Calabar High School and the University of the West Indies, Mona, James has had his fair share of involvement in music and the performing arts. He was a member of Cathy Levys Little People, Teen Players Club, Ashe Company, University Dance Society and Lacadco.

These days, her main focus is acting, having played the role of White Rat in the hit HBO series. Game Of Thrones, and recently starred in Lifetime Movie Networks Keeping in touch with the Joneses as William French alongside Vivica Fox. Shooting in such a demanding industry can be rigorous and James has revealed that on numerous occasions he listens to local music to get himself in the mindset to act.

There wasn’t really a break on Game Of Thrones, it was super fast. Keeping Up With The Jones was filmed in record time, so there wasn’t much of a break there either. I tend to listen to music before going on set. I’m listening to a dancehall mix on Spotify or I’m going to play gospel. If I want to get in the mood or the hype, I listen to dancehall music. Sean Paul is always a good choice, as well as Bounty Killer or Beenie Man, he explained.

I listen to Konshens, Spice, Rvssian, Dexta Daps, Skillibeng and Shenseea. She (Shenseea) is in the media a lot here. I love his song Blessed, he explained.

Even though he does not reside in Jamaica, James is well aware of the new acts and those he hopes to take the industry by storm.

Skeng, 10Tik, Caano and Amanyea are super talented. I’m sure there are a lot of other emerging artists that I haven’t heard from, but from what I have these people are definitely on the right track, he said.

James added that his love for music started as far back as he can remember. His father was a huge fan of old-school music, so the actor grew up with Bob Marley and Beres Hammond. In tribute to his parents who recently died from the coronavirus, James performed MarleysSong of redemptionat their memorial service on November 19.

He said he listened to a mix of old school and new school reggae and dancehall because it reminded him of his roots.

I just love the vibe and the hype. It reminds me of my parents. Any song that has a good beat or a good beat attracts me. People who grew up with me would know that I really love music that brings good vibes, James said.
