This week on, our dedicated music staff has once again been scouring the sonic landscape to bring you the freshest, most exciting tracks in the dancehall and reggae scene. With a mix of long-awaited reunions and innovative beats, these songs promise to keep your playlists buzzing. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the top four picks for the best new music this week.

‘Dull Colour’ by Vybz Kartel, Popcaan

A reunion over a decade in the making is our first selection this week. Dancehall icons Vybz Kartel and Popcaan reunite on their new track, ‘Dull Colour,’ marking the first collaboration between the mentor and mentee in over 12 years. Produced by AikoPonDiBeat, the song serves as a sonic time machine, transporting listeners back to the heydays of the Gaza/Portmore Empire. Kartel’s characteristic lyrical genius combines seamlessly with Popcaan’s distinct style, creating a unique blend that old-school dancehall fans have been craving for years.

‘False Alarm’ by Jahshii

Our next pick comes from Jahshii with his track ‘False Alarm.’ In an industry where art often imitates life, this song stands out as a hauntingly personal commentary. Produced by Young General Records, Jahshii addresses recent rumors about his alleged involvement in a murder in the Grants Pen community. The emotional depth of the song is heightened by the music video featuring Jahshii’s mother asserting their innocence. Released just a day before Jahshii’s motor car was shot up by gunmen, ‘False Alarm’ offers a chilling, yet captivating, insight into the artiste’s personal life.

‘Grandmaster’ by Govana

Despite being a few weeks old, Govana’s ‘Grandmaster’ still commands a spot on our list. The track, which initially slipped under our radar, stands as a testament to Govana’s signature style and flow. Produced by Crashdummy/Bangahouse and released on the Frshdrop Riddim, ‘Grandmaster’ boasts an irresistible rhythm that makes it a must-add to your playlist. If you’ve yet to discover this gem, now is the perfect time to check it out.

‘Vote’ by Delomar

Our final selection is a refreshing deviation from the norm. Delomar, one half of the Dancehall duo RDX, takes a bold step away from his usual dancing songs and girls tunes with his latest release, ‘Vote.’ Handled by Team Upgrade Production/Reckit Ralf Music, the production underscores Delomar’s poignant social commentary. The accompanying visuals enhance the track’s message, making ‘Vote’ a thought-provoking and compelling listen.

And that wraps up our top four picks for the best new music this week. Don’t miss out on these intriguing tracks – make sure they find a home in your playlist and enjoy the finest dancehall and reggae sounds currently making waves. Stay locked on for your regular dose of music news and updates.
