Style of music very similar to normal reggae, but with the guitar/keyboard striking on the downbeat instead of the traditional upbeat. Popularized by new wave/punk bands like the Police in the 80's.
Check out "Roxanne" by the Police, or the breakdown in "Natural Science" by Rush!

I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.
