Tanto Metro and Devonte

© Tanto Metro and Devonte


Tanto Metro and Devonte, a major pioneering force of the dancehall movement, has been creating hits for over a decade now. In the late '90s, they were able to pave the way for many reggae artistes. They tapped into the international mainstream markets during a time when it was unheard of for a Jamaican artiste to reach the charts outside of their home country. Tanto and Devonte's instant chemistry and talent led them beyond Jamaica and into the U.S. Top 40 Billboard chart not once, but twice. Their first



hit, "Everyone Falls in Love," swept up several major awards in 1998 including the Tamika and South Florida Reggae Soca Awards. The single hit the top 40 R&B and pop U.S. billboard charts and aired on radio throughout the globe. The subsequent album, bearing the same name was released by Sony Epic records in 1999; it featured a number of body-moving tracks like "Say Whoee" and "She Gone."
