Top 30 Reggae Songs in 2017

By on - Comment

Best songs of 2017 with Skarra Mucci, Samory I, Mista Savona, Courtney John, Kabaka Pyramid, Capleton, Sizzla, Hollie Cook, Jesse Royal and many more.


After the Top 20 reggae albums in 2017, the second top list in 2017 collects best reggae songs and the year has been pretty strong, especially the first six months. As usual the list collects both rising hopefuls and veterans. Most artists are from the Caribbean, but a few are from Europe and the U.S.

Glad that Jamaican falsetto singer Courtney John is back as a solo singer and his Yes We Are is a beautiful slice of mellow reggae. Other noteworthy highlights include the ferocious combination of Sizzla, Capleton and Fantan Mojah on Monkey Marc’s No Surrender, Burro Banton’s brutal Nah Sell Out on a wicked relick on the Kunta Kinte riddim and two ethereal singles from Hollie Cook’s much anticipated third studio album slated for release early next year.

The best track of the year is however Priceless on Frenchie’s Skank & Rave riddim. It’s a delicious slice of infectious and bouncy dancehall delivered by Michie One, Louchie Lou, Ding Dong and Bravo.

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