TEN OF THE BEST: Week 23
TEN OF THE BEST is back with regular scheduling, and this week is a big one folks. It includes a song that has been making waves in Zim, and I we have been blasting it on a regular basis here in NZ. It also includes some really big tunes that deserve multiple replays at a time.
Check out the spotify playlist at the bottom of this post:
This week’s playlist, in no particular order:
Akiliz – Ammara Brown
We kick things off with this monster tune by the incredibly talented Ammara Brown. The tune has been out for a couple of months now and is taken from her upcoming, if not already released, album. The song is a cool metaphor for her Achilles heel, the guy that takes her for granted regardless of all the kindness she shows. You see what she did with the song name too? Pull it up until your heart is content, big big tune.
Still Feel Good – Popcaan
Popcaan makes the playlist for the second time in as many weeks, and this time he brings this positive tune about feeling good hehe. Nice tune with a very good vibe.
Yu Zimme – Stylo G
Talking about big tunes, this song leaves no doubt in the listeners mind that it is a monster tune. The riddim is infectious, makes one want to hit the dancefloor immediately, and you Stylo G brings his signature flow to make the song nothing but pure vibes.
Rock Your Body – Burna Boy
Burna Boy has been MIA from the playlist for a while now, but the artist returns with this crazy tune. With a chill vibe, the instrumental gives Burna the perfect backdrop to show off his versatility. Great tune.
Nana – Mi Casa
Mi Casa makes another appearance on the playlist with this top notch house tune. If you don’t know Mi Casa, look up their catalogue I promise you will not be disappointed.
G.S.O.A.T – Barrington Levy
I told you that this week is full of big tunes right? This one is no exception, with one of the greatest to ever get on the mic doing what he does best. Talk about not missing a beat, Mr Levy still has it indeed.
Love Ones – Jahmiel
When all is said and done, you will find that Jahmiel will probably have more appearances on this playlist series than any other artist and that is saying a lot. I’m sure you are fully aware by now that I am a big fan of this artist, and he seldom disappoints. This song is on a level, the message is proper, the delivery on point as usual, and to wrap it all up the production is tight. Pull it up selector.
Rocky Dub Road – Alborosie
Another artist that I absolutely rate highly is Alborosie. I lived his album “Escape From Babylon” at one point in my life and from that time I have always been a big believer in this guy’s music. This is a dub version of his song Rocky Road from the album Freedom & Fyah. Tune!!!!
Weekend – Conkarah
Conkarah is one of the few Jamaican artists that highly rated by the general population here in NZ. This song is a perfect example why, easily listening reggae vibes, with a poppy production and straightforward lyrical content. This is in no way a slight on the song or artist, everything works which is what ultimately counts. Really cool tune no doubt.
Happy With The Girls – Sizzla
Let’s tie this one off with a big tune by the one like Sizzla Kalonji. The man has been really going hard on the dancehall tip, and I must say he hasn’t been missing much with his tunes. Vibes.
That’s us for another week folks, I hope you enjoyed this edition of TEN OF THE BEST. See you next week.
