With "Pon de Replay" (AKA "Come Mr. DJ/ Won't you turn the music up") the first Barbados-born pop dancehall princess named for a Fleetwood Mac hit (okay, we made that last part up) nobly raised awareness for a serious nightlife pandemic: too-quiet dance clubs. Hmm, we hadn't noticed that problem ourselves.
