1. Stephen Marley feat. Buju Banton and Damian Marley, “Jah Army”

Finally, six years after “Welcome to Jamrock,” Stephen Marley gave us the proper, lighter-raising sequel to his brother Damian’s cultural anthem “Welcome to Jamrock” we’ve been waiting on. Though it failed to score the mainstream crossover it deserved, “Jah Army” was massively well received by the core reggae/dancehall audience thanks in no small part to an arresting—and, for 2011, rare—turn from Buju Banton.
