The Canadian Reggae Scene has been somewhat stagnant as of late re: recording and releasing new music. The music that is being released, i’m jus’ not feeling it. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to downscale this month’s chart to a Top 10 Canadian Reggae Chart vs a Top 20 chart – this way, it’s fair to all! Once the scene picks up again, I will reinstate the Top 20 chart.
|01.||Dutchie Wah Food||Exco Levi|
|02.||She Believes In Me||Steele|
|03.||Baby It’s You||Ammoye|
|04.||Bahd Gyal Bubble||Michie Mee|
|05.||Glasses Dark||Terminal DG|
|06.||Street Level||Terminal DG|
|09.||So Hot||Kim Davis / Beenie Man|
|10.||Dance (Mek You Rock)||Ras Demo aka Demolition Man UK|

New this month – Ras Demo aka Demoliton Man UK (originally based out of London, but, resides in Canada now) in the number ten spot with “Dance (Mek You Rock)” – one of the two new songs to make it onto the chart.
Postion number nine goes to Toronto’s Kim Davis, who is featured alongside Beenie Man for a catchy tune entitled “So Hot”. I look forward to the video for this one.
Even though this song may seem dated, “Hanging On” by Steele moves up from its former position, number eleven, to the number eight spot. This well constructed song is jus’ one of two Steele songs that is featured on our Top 10 chart – way to go Steele!
Sitting firmly in its number seven spot (for two consecutive months) is Juno nominated songstress, Ammoye with “Radio”. A song which formerly occupied the number one spot on our Top 20 Canadian chart. Just like Steele, Ammoye also has two songs on this month’s chart.
Making the biggest jump from the February Chart at number nineteen, to the number six position, is Terminal DG with “Street Level”. Terminal DG is charted back to back – his catchy hit tune, “Glasses Dark” takes the number five spot.
Song number four features last month’s chart topper – Michie Mee’s “Bahd Gyal Bubble” which has topped the charts for two months in a row.
In spot number three, we see Ammoye’s second chart entry with “Baby It’s You”, a nice mellow tune that has grown on me after some time. Good Luck come Juno night!
Song number two sees Canada’s Steele with the Kenny Rogers original “She Believes In Me” masterfully recrafted and performed.
Topping our chart this month is one of Canada’s best writers and lyricists – Exco Levi with “Dutchie Wah Food”. Congratulations Exco! A former Juno award winner who is nominated yet again. Good Luck on your nomination! Take a listen to his song, you too will be impressed. I love the tune! Bless Up Mr. Levi!
