This song has Jamaica stamped all over it

If you haven't heard this song check out this pop reggae fusion song "Locked Away" by R City  featuring Adam Levine. R.City or Rock City a reggae pop duo out of US Virgin Islands, comprising  of brothers Theron and Timothy Thomas.  They have found Adam to sing the hook on this insanely mad romantic pop tune. The video is noteworthy for its ode to Jamaican music.

For starters it features Adam Levine of Maroon 5 a self-professed lover of reggae music. This song should be the duet he does with Tessane Chin. With her links with Adam and her music stylings I don't understand why this hasn't happened yet, note to Tessane make the link, this is the type of chune you need to cross over with.

Secondly the video features the stunning Chantel Davis, ex Miss Jamaica finalist and model based out of Florida check her out on instagram  @chantel.davis

Plus the inescapable drum pattern and the DJ verse, the club scene speaks for itself ....maaaaad

You may also it also features the sample of the melody from the popular Captain & Tennille hit "Do That To Me One More Time".

The song is currently  number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100, along with OMI break out hit single Cheerleader it has been a good year so far for Caribbean infused music.

 R. City's debut album "What Dreams Are Made Of", available October 9th.maaaad
