4. Skinny Fabulous, “Duracell (Charged Up)” (St. Vincent)

Vincy-to-the-world Skinny Fabulous turned the Iberian surf guitar riff from Major Lazer’s “Hold the Line” into a socafied monster with all the energy of Carnival and the edge of “Death in the Arena”–but it was only one arrow in the quiver of this three-peat soca monarch. We called it here, here and here.
