PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


Today's oldie-but-goodie video is the biggest selling reggae single in history. Surprised? So were we, and we're not even in the hater camp that thinks that a white kid from Toronto isn't really reggae. After all, that was the same kind of criticism leveled against dancehall reggae by all those Bob Marley fans. Darrin O'Brien (aka SNOW) came out of nowhere with this monster 12 Inches of Snow hit, "Informer," back in 1992, and it was the #1 pop single for seven weeks in a row. Sadly, he never really followed it up with another smash. What's the #1 reggae track this week? "It Wasn't Me" by Shaggy.
