While our countdown is for 2014 contributions only, we had to acknowledge this song for getting 2015 Carnival off to its start. Olatunji jumped into the 2015 Carnival race early, practically cutting a new lane with his track “Ola”. Continuing the Afrobeats trend seen this year, when Machel linked with Timaya and Denise Belfon gave us “Chuku Chuku,” the Kan Kan Riddim has mixed in those Caribbean Creole undertones, and we are loving it. If this is Olatunji’s first contribution for the season, we really want to see what’s coming next. —Tishanna Williams
