[Sharingbuttons]It’s officially the end of 2017 and one topic that’s always up for discussion in the Jamaican music space is about which song was the best for 2017, in both the Dancehall and Reggae genre. Below are our selections based on several surveys done by our team.
10. Impact — Alkaline and Yanique Curvy Diva – Lifestyle This song is clearly a fan favorite rocking up over six million views on YouTube, Even the Gaza fans can be heard chanting this song once it’s playing. Yanique Curvy Diva – Lifestyle is the Hot Girls anthem of 2017, the curvy diva made such a major impact with this song that it would be foul to not add it to the list.
9. Winning Right Now — Agent Sasco aka Assassin This song just won’t stop playing on the radio, real nice positive tune “My wife had been asking me to do a song to celebrate people winning at different aspects of their lives — the daily victories, both small and large. When I got the beat from Upsetta Records, it just felt like the right soundtrack to a song like that,” Agent Sasco said.
8. Blood Money — Protoje This politically correct song gives us insight into Jamaica’s corrupt system like no other has done in a while, we all love this song for the message it brings across. Produced by Winta James easily one of the year’s biggest jams.
7. Infrared – Vybz Kartel and Masicka Arguably the best hardcore dancehall collab of the year. Still masicka’s biggest tune to date.
6. Equal Rights – Ishawna This is the Ladies favorite, a remake to the beat of Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, This song got the attention of all Jamaicans who already have conflicting opinions on the matter.
5. Fling Yuh Shoulda – Ding Dong This tune had everybody moving at events, even the PM was out and about Flinging his shoulder to the beat recently.
4. No Worries – Spice, D’ Angel Almost 3 million views in 3 months, this song is possible the best Jamaican dancehall female collab in the last decade.
