7. Frankie Paul, “Thanks & Praises”

Frankie Paul is mostly known for his stinging dancehall hits, even if he is unparalleled in dropping lovers rock on Jammyโ€™s riddims. “Worries in the Dance,”–whether the extra dark, original Channel One production or the more dancehall-friendly reworking on Yellowmanโ€™s โ€œIโ€™m Getting Married in the Morningโ€ riddim–is normally what Frankie Paulโ€™s name conjures up. However โ€œGive Thanks and Praiseโ€ from his somewhat overlooked Come Back Again album is a true gem. Kick, snare, bass AND lead organ instantaneously kicks into the Lordโ€™s Prayer with astonishing rewindability. Give Thanks, FP!
