10. Tifa

From the moment that “Crawny Gal” dropped on Ward 21’s Dem Gal Sitt’n riddim in the mid-2000’s, it was obvious that Tifa would be a leader among dancehall’s millennial generation of female artists. Known for tracks like “Dash Out,” “Wife Me Up” and “Champion Bubbler” (for NY-based Mixpak Records), Tifa also joined up with fellow Ward 21-affiliated females Natalie Storm and Timberlee to form the group TNT. She has earned numerous titles and accolades in Jamaica—where she is one of the most popular—from the Excellence in Music and Entertainment Awards, Youth View Awards, and Stone Love. —Raine Martin
