As we celebrate Black History Month and Reggae Month during the month of February, the Jamaican flag has once again been raised high on American mainstream television.

Last Thursday, late night viewers were treated to a performance by Konshens and Sean Paul. They performed their current Billboard Digital Reggae single hit, Want Dem All, on the popular Arsenio Hall show, which aired live on the WPIX channel.

Dancehall music got some attention on the Arsenio Hall Show in the 1990s with performances by Shabba Ranks and Patra.

In an interview segment on the show, Sean Paul took the time out to thank host Arsenio Hall for giving dancehall the platform to showcase the Jamaican culture. He also commended Hall for having acts like himself and Konshens and past performers, including Shabba Ranks, be a part of creating history on American latenight television.

Konshens and Sean Paul's performance had social media buzzing, as fans took to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posting videos recorded from their television. Others tweeted positive messages for both artistes.

"It was a good day for dancehall," said Konshens.

Want Dem All is the lead single from Sean Paul's recently released album Full Frequency. "Get that album, Full Frequency. I'm featured in the lead single, but I'm heard on so many lead singles on it (lol). It baddd," Konshens added.

Konshens is currently promoting two singles, Weak and Independent Girl, both of which have been generating great response from local and international radio.

Konshens will kick off his US college tour on February 25.
