Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1970s. Initially dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style, which had dominated much of the 1970s. Two of the biggest stars of the early dancehall era were Yellowman and Eek-a-Mouse. Dancehall made a resurgence within the pop market in the late 2000s, with songs by Konshens, Busy Signal, Mr. Vegas, Alkaline, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Beenie Man. By the 2010s, dancehall began to heavily influence the work of established hip-hop artists, such as Drake, which has helped to further bring the genre into the Western music mainstream
