“Majesty” and “Spanish Town Rockin” technically predate 2017, with the latter first appearing as a mixtape track (Roots and Chalice with Federation Sound) and the former showing up as the soundtrack to a dynamic video, in 2016. Together with the artist’s big hit “Skankin Sweet,” they helped buoy anticipation around Chronixx’s debut album, Chronology in the months before its release, and continue to stay in heavy rotation wherever reggae is played. Only their questioned status as *2017 releases* keep these songs from placing higher on this list. —Desmond Alphonso
