It began as a more sparse version of reggae, but with advancements in technology and instruments, the tempo of the music rapidly increased. It is quite a controversial style of music because of some of the messages certain songs have had, but it still has a loyal fan base.

It was in its earliest form back in the 1940s when people would go to local dance halls to listen to popular Jamaican recordings played on the local sound systems. Many people that were from the inner city of Kingston were not allowed to attend the dances uptown, so that is why the attended these dance halls. As time went on and there were multiple social and political changes, the style of music that was played in these dance halls became quite different. The lyrics, as well as the sound, began to drastically change and take a new shape.

Some of the most popular deejays in the early stages of Dancehall were Yellowman, Sister Charmaine, Captain Sinbad, and Lone Ranger. While most of the lyrics had become quite violent, there were a few deejays, such as Yellowman, who chose to sing humorous songs. Dancehall was quickly beginning to take form and become quite a popular genre in Jamaica. Yellowman was nearly as popular as the legendary Reggae singer Bob Marley.

The digital age of Dancehall began when the song "(Under Me) Sleng Teng" by Wayne Smith was released. He was attempting to mimic "Something Else" by Eddie Cochrane, but on a monotone Casio ... resulting in the now legendary sleng teng sound. . It was extremely popular and it had an entirely digital hook. The song influenced other deejays to use a similar sound and the genre of Dancehall changed forever. The lyrics became more violent and the style took on darker sound. It still has many influences in 2014 new songs, and artists like Rihanna and Beyonce have both been in a Dancehall song. The most popular Dancehall artists to date are Popcann, Mavado, Mr. Vegas, iOctane, Konshens, busy signal, and Vybz Kartel.
