8. Popcaan, “Ova Dweet”


My thing is normally 100% hardcore dancehall and reggae, but this year I’ve played lots of crossover parties where nuff rap and R&B songs were in rotation. “Ova Dweet” is one of those songs that’s great as a bridge between different genres, and one that people who don’t consume dancehall on a daily basis can easily relate to. It’s definitely one of the top three Popcaan songs for 2016. Even if did get a little bit overshadowed after the war between Popcaan and Mavado kick off, this one is a certified hit. — DJ Shirkhan
