6. Beenie Man, Blessed (1995)


A top 20 album on the Billboard reggae chart, Blessed was the most consistent international dancehall album of its time, and proved why some people started calling Beenie Man the new King Of The Dancehall. A straight, get-up-and-dance type album, songs such as “World Dance” and “Modeling” became party anthems and even the conscious title song “Blessed” had people up and dancing to its fast tempo. “Stop Live In De Past” was the track that took the lyrical war between Beenie Man and Bounty Killer to another level, much to the delight of the dancehall fans around the world. This was not the album that you sat and listen to unless you were paraplegic .
