Fourth week running! The LoveDancehall Friday Top 5 is here to deliver the top 5 tracks from the week and get you ready for the weekend! These tunes made it to the top and are guaranteed to get you moving, grooving, skankin, and shaking dem dreadlocks. Get ready for a mix of the best Dancehall, Reggae, and Afrobeats!
As one of the legendary Dancehall/Reggae artists of our time, Sizzla takes the number one spot with his take on the Forrest Park Riddim. His unmistakeably unique sound and style stand out on this riddim and makes you forget that the riddim is a sample look of Kesha’s “Die Young”. Glad Sizzla added some originality to this riddim, although it is EXTREMELY catchy in its own right.
#2. NG ft. Timaya – Onyeukwu
Out of Nigeria, NG links up with widely recognized Afrobeats star Timaya for a track we’ve had on repeat throughout the week. The classic “high-life” sound mixed with catchy hooks and a thumping beat for a backdrop is undeniable. Something about Afrobeats… even if you don’t understand what they are saying in Pidgin, still gotta groove to it.
This track is a Dancehall banger. The riddim is hot, and Jah Vinci just takes it to the next level. You’ll see exactly what we mean. Get ready to wine wine wine wine wine wine wine!
The track title says it all, this track is exactly that, straight legendary. Linking up two of Dancehall’s longest serving stars for a quality production, “Legendary” is an unmistakeably original hit.
#5. I-Octane – Rich Rich Rich
To round off the chart this week I-Octane delivers melodies on life, growing up in poverty and reaching higher heights by getting “Rich Rich Rich”.
