14. Alkaline – Fleek


This Alkaline dude works harder than the post office. Of the many singles he put out this year, “Fleek” was the most memorable. You just can’t get away from one of dancehall’s most buzzworthy artists using one of the year’s ubiquitous words. Alkaline uses a simple delivery and a “fleek hook to draw you in. His autotuned sound recalls Vybz Kartel, but also feels new, or a bit like Future if he was a dancehall artist. “Fleek” shows Alkaline’s versatility, while keeping true to the vibe and sound that he is famous for. —Kalifa Madden
