Jamaica's music culture was reflected at the 2016 American Music Awards last night in Los Angeles.

Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj got steamy during their performance of the reggae-tinged Side to Side.

Grande's background dancers danced closely on her, and one male dancer even pulled up her skirt, while Minaj, who rapped from a chair, spread her legs widely.

American artiste Drake, who has been sampling several dancehall songs, was a big winner on the night.

Drake, who has sampled works from dancehall acts like Beenie Man, Popcaan, and Mavado was the big winner with four awards and debuted a new commercial for Apple Music.

"For our genre, I just like to keep things exciting and keep making music. Shout out to everybody that's trying to do the same thing," said Drake, who broke Michael Jackson's record for most AMA nominations after scoring 13 nominations.
