โ€œMajestyโ€ and โ€œSpanish Town Rockinโ€ technically predate 2017, with the latter first appearing as a mixtape track (Roots and Chalice with Federation Sound) and the former showing up as the soundtrack to a dynamic video, in 2016. Together with the artistโ€™s big hit โ€œSkankin Sweet,โ€ they helped buoy anticipation around Chronixxโ€™s debut album, Chronology in the months before its release, and continue to stay in heavy rotation wherever reggae is played. Only their questioned status as *2017 releases* keep these songs from placing higher on this list. โ€”Desmond Alphonso
