7. Sizzla, “Just One of Those Days” (JA)

Along with Damian and Jah Cure, Sizzla was the most credible of a trio of artists who smuggled one drop into heavy rotation on urban radio–and Sizzla was the only one to pull it off twice, with “Solid As A Rock” and this heart-tugging rework of the classic Studio One riddim “Queen of the Dance.” The ’00s was also the decade in which Sizzla stopped being the most prolific Caribbean artist and became the most imitated with the emergence of a whole generation of post-Sizzla dreads (both in Jamaica and other islands) forming an industry almost to themselves.
