+2. Konshens – “Big People Ting”


Still riding high off 2012 hits like “So Mi Tan,” Konshens delivered another smash this year with “Big People Ting” off the Toasted riddim. “Big People Ting” warns that “dis a nuh nutn fi likkle gyal play wid” and, true to form, dancehall’s current club-tune king follows through. Konshens takes us on a “ol’ dutty dancehall excursion” with the 90’s style riddim, and the music video follows suit, showing dancehall in its natural element as girls whine up in skin-tight biker outfits while straddling any number of high-powered motorcycles. After watching the “Big People Ting” video, pay close attention to “Want Dem All,” Konshens’ new single with Sean Paul. It looks like this one could finally establish the deejay on a more mainstream level in the U.S. and other markets where he’s not yet reached his star potential.โ€” Michellee Nelson
