Culture Minister applauds Jamaica's representation in latest 'Bond' film

Culture and Entertainment Minister Olivia Grange is applauding Jamaica's representation in the latest James Bond film No Time To Die.
 
The movie premiered locally on Friday and features scenes shot in Portland and Kingston - providing employment for local industry players - and is infused with reggae and dancehall singles.
 
The film's new Bond girl, Lashana Lynch, is of Jamaican heritage and it also features an appearance by Jamaican actress, Naomi Harris.
 
The music of Shaggy, Sister Nancy and Buju Banton as well as Noah Powa, Teacha Dee and Jah Buzz also made the cut.
 
Shaggy and Noah Powa's collaboration Money Up, Buju Banton's Champion, Teacha Dee's Rastafari Way and Love In The Arena by Jah Buzz are echoed in the film.
 
Sister Nancy's 1982 classis Bam Bam, which samples Toots And The Maytals 1966 song of the same name, is among the featured songs.
 
The single, which was also recently featured in the critically acclaimed series Maid, is regarded as the most sampled reggae song of all time.
