It’s almost the big day and if you, like us can’t take one day off from your favourite genres (reggae and dancehall), then this is the article for you, as we break down the tracks that you should be listening to throughout your Christmas Day.
If It’s Time To Open Presents
We’ve got two tracks for you to be listening to whilst you open your presents this year, one classic from the Unruly Boss in ‘Christmas Gift’ and a new track from Jahvillani and Chyn Chilla which also carries the name ‘Christmas Gift’. It would perhaps be advisable that you maybe should not be playing these in front of your whole family, unless they also love some explicit dancehall, as Popcaan and Jahvillani aren’t talking about Christmas presents that traditionally come in wrapping paper.
If It’s Time To Play A Dancehall Christmas Classic Refix
Then we would definitely suggest Popcaan’s ‘Jingle Bell’ which was released back in 2009 on the Kurrupt Krysmus Riddim, and sees the Unruly Boss putting an explicit twist on everyone’s Christmas favourite ‘Jingle Bells’
If You Are Disappointed With The Gifts Your Man Has Given You For Christmas
If your man hasn’t provided you with the quality of presents you were perhaps expecting this year and are wishing for a richer man to provide those gifts, then Lady Saw’s ‘Rich Man For Christmas’ will definitely be a relateable song for you.
If You Are Looking For The Perfect Christmas Album To Play During That Long Family Meal
Look no further than Jacob Miller’s ‘Natty Christmas’ which sees the reggae icon performing both his own versions of Christmas classics, but also his own unique Christmas songs.
If You Are Looking For Some Extremely Conscious Christmas Songs That Remind You Of How Fortunate You Are
Definitely check out Reggaeville’s Crime Free Christmas series which was released back in 2016, with incredible tracks from Chronixx, Tarrus Riley and Duane Stephenson that will help to remind you this Christmas, how fortunate you really are. There are also some really unique versions of Christmas classics produced by some of the biggest names in Reggae and Dancehall.
If You Are Bit Confused How Many Times Christmas Comes A Year…
Then Beenie Man will happily remind you on ‘Once A Year’.
If You Can’t Take One Day Off From Representing The Gaza…
It’s Christmas on The Gaza with Blak Ryno and Vybz Kartel on ‘Gaza Christmas’
It’s a Gullyside Christmas, as Mavado, Flexx and Savage link up on ‘Gully Christmas’ as Mavado robs Santa this Christmas.
And Finally… If You Are Feeling Ready To Turn Up and Celebrate Christmas In Style
Then we have plenty of songs for you, we would recommend starting with ‘Christmas F**k’ from Vybz Kartel.
Follow that up with ‘Lime Christmas Pon Di (remix)’ with Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Cecile and Mavado.
Follow that up with Busy Signal’s ‘Christmas Money’
Then top that off with ‘Like Christmas’ from Vybz Kartel and Sheba, and your craving for the tun up should be satisfied.
Hopefully this selection of tracks should satisfy your craving for your favourite genres over Christmas, whether you are in the mood to settle down with family or tun up and listen to the finest dancehall from the best artists in the genre.
