Honorable Mentions
Vybz Kartel — (Almost) Everything Else

vybz-kartel-varun-baker

Kartel literally saturated the market this year with hits on top of hits on top of hits. It has been overwhelming at times. I have found I’ve had to pace myself with the amount of Kartel I take on at one time. He has made so many great songs this year, you could almost say he made too many. (And there were a few duds). Before you can let a song sink in another four have arrived — sleep for two weeks, and an album worth of music may have been missed. King of the Dancehall was a great album but, before you could even digest it, Kartel had already put out another five hits, many album worthy in their own right. — Osei Pola-Samuels
