15.Toian – Love Itย  scan0053ye2r

Toian is one of the more intriguing young female artists out of Jamaica right now. Mixing a cool, understated vocal style with vintage reggae riddims, sheโ€™s shown her diversity through collaborations with both Protoje and Vybz Kartel, and cultivated an online following with her early singles, โ€œRude Boysโ€ and โ€œKingston Town.โ€ The opening track on Toianโ€™s debut EP, Retrospect โ€œLove Itโ€ follows the moody vibes of those tracks, with something more upbeat. Over notes borrowed from the foundation riddim My Conversation, she delivered another anthem for good girls who like rude boys, with a mellow rocksteady melody fit for a Sunday afternoon. โ€” Jesse Serwer
