Aidonia‘s “Yeah Yeah,” on Emudio Records’ Genna Bounce riddim, was probably the most infectious dancehall song of the year, whipping listeners into a frenzy from Kingston to Atlantic City. In fact, the song proved so captivating to local audiences in JA that there was talk of banning it after this video of a bus conductor recklessly dancing to the song surfaced on social media. Apparently, listeners just could not control themselves, they had to dance when “Yeah Yeah” came on. Now if that isn’t a sign that your music is doing well, we don’t know what is. Aidonia later showed the conductor some love, bringing him out on stage during one of his performances. All in all, 2017 was big for ‘Donia, who connected with hits after hits. — Kadene Pitter
