Sounds fine. (At least depending on one's tolerance of tuned vocals. The sound bugs me, but I'm clearly not in the majority on that.)

I'm not so sure about the 'accent,' not that various accents haven't snuck into my own vocals. I think, if I was you and doing it again, I'd see how it sounds sung in your natural style.

All that said, yeah, doesn't seem to have many of the traditional characteristics that have often been used to define the reggae musical style, but that doesn't make it bad in any way...

A lot of us oldsters got kind of fed up with US artists trying too hard to sound 'authentic' when working in a reggae style. I'm thinking about an evening recently when I decided to put together a mini pasta-rasta set: "Cheap Date," "Breakdown," and "Roxanne." All ingratiating, catchy songs with strong hooks. But just a trifle embarrassing from some angles, in historic perspective.
