We Highlight Some Of The Dancehall Artists Who Have Defined The 2010s!


December 31, 2019 marks the last day of the 2010s, and January 1, 2020 will mark the first day of a new decade. It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, but today we look back at some of Dancehall Artists who have made an impact on the scene. With so many hits and moments, we know lists and faves will vary. Before we start, we want to thank everyone who has given our Blog and Social Media a chance since 2012. We’ve featured so many and have assisted in the careers of plenty, we look forward to doing even more in 2020, and beyond. Let’s get started with our lengthy list.

(Editor’s Note: Everyone’s list is different, so if you have a problem with this one…make your own!)

Vybz Kartel

I mean, what’s a list without the “World Boss“? A man who continued to add fuel to the fire of his musical career, long after making his debut in the early 2000s. With his entrepreneurial side blooming with a Shoe line, Liquor line, Nightclub, Merch, to even Condoms, Vybz was everywhere. He even had a Reality TV series, and kept up with quite a bit of controversy too. Despite him being thrown behind bars in 2011 and facing 35 years soon after, it didn’t stop him from recording music, and releasing singles and albums up to this day. Remember his “Freaky Girl” saga? We know you all have a few Kartel tracks in rotation.

Spice

Spice is also an Artist you can’t deny when it comes to this list as well. Spice held it down for the ladies, and showed the men that she can handle her own. With so many bookings, i’m surprised there isn’t a row or an Airline named after her yet. Spice kept the hits coming, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle as well with her “Spicey Couture” store which started growing since opening in 2009. With the help of Social Media, Spice’s brand got bigger, and took a major turn in 2018 when she was made a cast member on the popular VH1 Reality TV series, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Spice welcomed her share of controversy as well which included relationship issues, and the topic of Colorism. With her career starting in the early 2000s, she kept the fire going like her “World Boss” colleague, and got crowned Queen in the process.

.@MelxdieYoung Links Up With @Mavado_Gully On “Girls R Better”!


It’s a Canada/Jamaica link up as Recording Artist Melxdie teams up with the “Gully GadMavado on “Girls R Better“! With the track produced by Christopher Birch, Thomas Tasker, and Eb Reinbergs, it’s a mix of that  “Gullyside” sound that you’re used to along with Melxdie’s poppy delivery that’s an enjoyable listen. On the track, Melxdie makes the statement that girls are a better company to keep, and will aid and motivate you, while Mavado agrees and shows love to his #1 girl who stays loyal to him.

The video that accompanies “Girls R Better“, is a Damian Fyffe directed visual that finds Mavado being targeted by the Police thanks to a snitch, but Melxdie holds it down for him. In the end though, snitches meet their end in the worst way. How’s Mavado’s acting? Shoutout to all the number 1 girls! Check out the video below, and share with a friend.

.@Mavado_Gully Shakes The Table Of Badmind People On “Dancehall Prophecy”!


Shout it out from the hills and every house top that Mavado is here with some heat! Since his debut in the 2000’s, the “Gully Gad” has been working hard to seal his place as one of the best Dancehall Artists to touch the mic. While there were feuds and many detractors, he puts his foot on the speaker box and unleashes the “Dancehall Prophecy“! With Justus Arison controlling the production on the soon to be released Time Machine Riddim, Mavado puts his heart into this song as he speaks on some of his trials and rising above the adversities, coming from nothing and seeing success on another level, doing a lot for Dancehall, and staying on top of his game despite those who wish his demise and try to stop him from taking care of his family. The video accompanying the track shows Mavado linking with some of the best including performing with DJ Khaled, seeing fans from a various parts of the world enjoy his music, and highlighting the loved ones he puts his all for. You can’t deny Mavado’s impact, and despite setbacks, he has a lot more gas in the tank. Gullyside can’t flop! Check out the track below, and share with a friend.
