The 20 Best Reggae Songs of the first half of 2017

By on - Comment

Best songs of the half-year with Samory I, Mista Savona, Lutan Fyah, Capleton, Sizzla, Jesse Royal and many more.


The midpoint of 2017 is behind us, and that’s why it’s necessary to sum up the first six months. Below is a list of 20 reggae and dancehall cuts released this year that I have been spinning quite frequently. Some have even been on repeat, like Samory I’s militant Rasta Nuh Gangsta, Mista Savona’s sweaty Carnival, Lukie D’s sondbwoy slayer Lock Dem Down and Monkey Marc’s No Surrender, a cut also featuring Sizzla, Capleton and Fantan Mojah. Yes, you read it right. Those three on the same track. It’s crazy. I know.

The first six months have been rather strong with a many strong contenders, but you need to draw the line somewhere. And 20 seemed about right.

The list is as usual presented in no particular order and the songs included are only singles or tracks taken from compilations.
