    i have been getting more and more into these sounds, particularly as they have been increasingly lifted by US rappers

    some of my faves include:


    Wizkid (of drake "one dance" fame)

    Ayo Jay

    Kiss Daniel

    I've basically only heard all the crossover tracks with hip hop artists and a few big singles, but everything I've heard I really like.

    new wizkid track getting a push in the US is kind of a mistake. three singers? too diluted.

    I'm still eternally an album guy, not a singles guy. Any staple records to educate myself?

    Idk if it belongs here bc it's more reggae/dancehall but this is a good find from The Fader 115 tracks of 2016

    What are your thoughts?

    It's alright but pretty same-y throughout. Best tracks are Come Closer and the two Ty Dolla Sign tracks and that's mostly because Wizkid has someone to bounce off.

    That's kind of a bummer. I love "Come Closer" not thrilled about a Chris Brown collab though

    Davido x Young Thug x Rae Sremmurd - Pere. Prod. by Mustard. It's a jam.
