10 Stars With International Influence Making a Mark on Hip-Hop and R&B
Great music can come from anywhere — literally. Whether artist’s stem from the eastern hemisphere or south of the equator, many of their lauded tracks exhibit international flair. Hip-hop and R&B has always been influenced in some capacity by artists who boast global heritage, some born outside of the U.S., others not. Either way, we’re grateful for their contributions, body-rocking music and cultural pride — as well as for the U.S. Customs department for bringing us all a little closer.
In honor of Flag Day, The BoomBox found 10 artists — Fat Joe, Melanie Fiona, Wale and Estelle, among others — who rep their international backgrounds and raise their flags high, all while creating music that impacts around the world.
