10. Bounty Killer and Cecille, “Ride”
Bounty Killer Top 10 Best Dancehall Singles

Bounty Killer quietly had a strong year, musically speaking at least. While most of the attention generated by the Warlord in 2012 derived, somewhat unfortunately, from his feud with dancehall’s man-of-the-hour, Tommy Lee Sparta, Bounty cranked out lots of quality tunesโ€”“No Long Talking,” on Jah Snowcone’s Antibiotic riddim was a favoriteโ€”with minimal hype. The one new Bounty that caught on was “Ride,” his collaboration with a now-pregnant Cecile. (That last detail may explain why “Ride” never got a video).
