5. Rupee “Tempted To Touch” (2004)

Island music was at its commercial peak in 2004, and tunes like “Tempted to Touch” were a major reason why. Taking inspiration from Beres Hammond’s 1990 hit of the same name, Bajan-British singer Rupee crafted a track that sat perfectly in the crosshairs of soca, dancehall, R&B, reggaeton and pop, and it suited the mood on dancefloors around the world just perfectly.
