See the Top 20 artistes you need to know below!

1 Vybz Kartel

Though the reggae efforts from Vybz Kartel are minuscule in comparison to his dancehall hits, the Teacha’s Can’t Kill We and Back Way, which features Spice, are the two most-played songs for the artiste.

2 Popcaan

3 Drake

4 Buju Banton

New age Reggae icon Buju Banton would undoubtedly make the list if only for his extensive catalogue of tracks that span the test of time. Top tracks from the Gargamel include the of-the-moment track Trust and the ’95 release Only Man.

5 Shenseea

6 Mariah Carey

7 Koffee

By now – following her recent Grammy Awards nom and subsequent win in the Best Reggae Album category – we reckon Koffee is inching closer to the top of the list.

8 Alkaline

9 Post Malone

10 Dexta Daps

11 Rihanna

The Navy is eager for the release of Riri’s next album! Fenty has confirmed that it is a reggae project. Like the rest of the world, we wait with bated breath.

12 Squash

13 Govana

14 D-FI Powèt Revòlte

15 Jada Kingdom

The soulful lyricist has created for herself a niche in the Reggae arena. Miss Kingdom leads the charge with several popular tracks like Banana, Heavy, and most recently Execution – a diss track targeting paedophiles and child molesters.

16 Ariana Grande

17 Chris Brown

18 Mavado

19 Nicki Minaj

Only a few of the top tracks from Trinbagonian rapper Nicki Minaj can truly be considered reggae efforts.

But, Minaj comes close with dancehall bops like her feature on Mavado’s Give It All To Me and the Hold Yuh (Remix) with Gyptian.

An honourable mention is last summer’s MEGATRON.

20 Sam Smith

Quelle surprise! The How Do You Sleep? hit-maker barely made the list. But with new music on the way for 2020, we believe the R&B crooner will be trending upwards soon.
