Tanto Metro and Devonte, a major pioneering force of the dancehall movement, has been creating hits for over two decades now. In the late '90s, they were able to pave the way for many reggae artistes. They tapped into the international mainstream markets during a time when it was unheard of for a Jamaican artiste to reach the charts outside of their home country. Tanto and Devonte's instant chemistry and talent led them beyond Jamaica and into the U.S. Top 40 Billboard chart not once, but twice. Their first hit, "Everyone Falls in Love," swept up several major awards in 1998 including the Tamika and South Florida Reggae Soca Awards; and the ASCAP 2000 Rhythm and Souls Music Awards for being one of the top reggae artistes in 1999.
