6. Jah 9
Jah 9

Jah 9 might’ve made last year’s list, but she didn’t have that tune yet. Well, now, she does. Her latest single “Steamers A Bubble” captures the energy of the reggae revival as well as anything else from the movement’s better known names, and is sure to continue picking up steam as we head towards the warmer months. And there’s no mistaking Jah 9 for any other Jamaican vocalist right now: she’s developed her own “Jazz on Dub” style, with a vocal delivery best described as yardie Nina Simone.ย  โ€”Jesse Serwer
