Artist Biography
Tanto Metro (born Mark Wolfe in Kingston, Jamaica) acquired his stage name from working on the Metromedia sound system. He moved on to become part of Patrick Roberts' Shocking Vibes organization and released the solo album Ratings in 1995 which featured guest appearances from Beenie Man and Dean Fraser. He subsequently established a working partnership with tenor-voiced singer Devonte (born Wayne Passley), and the duo had a major hit in Jamaica in 1997 with "Everyone Falls in Love", which was followed by an album of the same name produced by Donovan Germain for penthouse Records; The single and album also sold well in the United States and Canada (the album topped the Billboard Top Reggae Albums Chart and the single reached number 6 in the Canadian singles chart), leading to a deal with Epic Records. The duo were compared to the similar duo of Chaka Demus and Pliers.

The duo's second album, The Beat Goes On, was released in 2001 by VP Records in Jamaica and Universal in the US. The album reached number 4 on Billboard '​s Top Reggae Albums Chart in 2002. A single from the album, "Give It to Her", reached number 85 in the Billboard Hot 100. Beenie Man again guested and the duo repaid the compliment on his 2002 album Tropical Storm.

The duo released Musically Inclined in 2006, with a guest appearances from Courtney Melody and Morgan Heritage.

A quite period for the duo followed, although a compilation in VP/Greensleeves Most Wanted series was released in 2009.

They returned with the single "Already Know" in 2013 with a Sly and Robbie-produced album, Request, due for release later in the year.
