Music is said to set the tone and the mood for different occasions. Persons have a playlist for almost every activity, whether it be cleaning, in the shower or a road trip to the country. Based on the idea behind Valentine’s day, it would only be natural to have a Valentine playlist.
Since this year’s Valentine will be like no other with curfews, quarantines and protective gear- we decided to share a dancehall playlist.
Shabba- Mr Loverman.
Released in 1991 and Shabba is telling you to find the champion lover that will make sure you’re taken care of-
“To satisfy her soul you know that she wants a man Poof
It’s Shabba Ranks, she’s buck upon
A going make you explode just like a bomb…”
Buju Banton- Make My Day. This song really is a slow jam, that shows the real romance of reggae and dancehall. Slow dance to this original and share love.
“You’re the rose in my garden, pretty little flower
Guardian angel, fairy godmother
A friend to the end and also a lover
My one and only, I don’t need another…”
The main event is coming up and you might need to turn up the heat, say no more !
Vybz Kartel- Slow Motion. Kartel is known for doing slow songs for the ladies- This song came out in 2011, the real dancehall love song of the early 2010’s. Vybz Kartel really wanted the heat to build and bring romance back. “Slow motion-
Do it from yuh heart, whine wid emotion
Di style weh yuh give me smooth, nuh lotion
It mek di waves dem a rise up inna mi ocean” Honourable mention – Enchanting.
Aidonia- Heart is Hers. This 2010 song didn’t really make a big mark in dancehall but it really has the romance that a lot of dancehall songs don’t.
His heart really is yours ladies. “Touching on your body Kissing on your neck Just mi touch alone men you rip up the sheet set.“
Popcaan- Addicted. A 2014 release by the unruly artiste. He really shows that you can be addicted, if you rate them differently.
“Fi once inna your life, just be real
Cyaan take weh me scream and fight
This time we fi smile all night
I’ve been thinking about you
And me hope say you thinking of me”
Alkaline- Things Me Like. Also a song from 2014 dropped song, Akaline really did it for the ladies. “Come here baby” indeed. “You do the things, do the things me love
Me never see a gyal weh me love so much
Tek off fi your black panty, baby
And mek we go purple touch”
Dexta Daps – WiFi
dubbed the Jamaican Casanova by his fans- has released Wifi for the Valentine weekend. Dexta is known for his impact on the ladies so this new single is definitely a nice addition to the playlist. “F**k yuh so good make yuh feel like yuh wah cry (Wah cry) Girl me just love how me and you connect like a WiFi Yuh secret safe with me, yuh freaky nuh try hide..“
