Culture Club's music combines British New Wave and American soul with Jamaican reggae and also other styles such as calypso, salsa or country.
In 1984, Culture Club won the Brit Award for Best British Group, and the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. In the UK they amassed twelve Top 40 hit singles between 1982-1999, including the number ones "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" and "Karma Chameleon", the latter being the biggest selling single of 1983, and topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. Ten of their singles reached the US Top 40, where they are associated with the Second British Invasion of British New Wave groups that became popular in the United States due to the cable music channel MTV.
