6. Wayne Marshall – “I Know”

As seen on our Top 10 Dancehall Singles list, 2013 was all about a return to earlier eras in Jamaican music, specifically the early ’90s. Wayne Marshall and “I Know” producer Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley took things back even earlier on this ’80s reggae-inspired tune with a heavy Sly and Robbie feel. Wayne’s lyrics aren’t exactly cultural—they’re kind of nasty, actually—but his delivery was just too on point to disagree with his declarations.—Jesse Serwer
