The #FridayTop5 is here and as always it’s full of good vibez and Pure Niceness! This week has something for everyone including a new track from Vybz Kartel, new track from Fuse ODG, a hard hitter from veterans Midnite and some artists to keep an eye out for in the coming year. Get the weekend started right, #LoveDancehall!
#1. Toian – Kingston Town
This artist has been popping up here and there for the past year and making some noise for herself along the way. “Kingston Town” made it onto VP Records Strictly the Best Vol. 50, a sure sign of recognition and she previously featured on Vybz Kartel’s “Ice Queen”. What makes Toian stand out from the crowd is her smooth and sweet voice which at first reminded me of “Musical Youth”. This songstress has a bright future in the Reggae/Dancehall world.
#2. Vybz Kartel – Champagne Bubble
This track comes off the “Exclusivity” EP which includes two previously unreleased tracks. Champagne Bubble is the pick of the two, keeping true to the Vybz Kartel lyrical delivery and modern Dancehall beats. Check out the full EP here!
#3. Midnite – Restore
Midnite have announced the release of a new album, “Ride True”, in collaboration with Igrade Records. So far they’ve been generous enough to release two tracks off the upcoming album, “Credited” and this one “Restore”. Pure rootsy rootsy reggae vibes on these tracks.
#4. Fuse ODG – Thinking About You
Fresh track from the Ghanaian via London Afrobeats star. It’s what you would expect from Fuse ODG, high energy, good vibes, and auto tuned vocals, sure to be a club banger. I’ve been thinking about you all day!
#5. Ras Charmer – Be Wise (Happy Hour Riddim)
The Happy Hour Riddim makes half the track here for Ras Charmer. Don’t take credit away though, the catchy hook and chorus will have this on replay in your head. Want more of the Happy Hour Riddim? Hear the likes of Alkaline, Beenie Man, Mavado and Vybz on the Happy Hour Riddim right here!
