Stefflon Don Thriving On Dancehall Front


Without being overzealous, we can safely say that there is a new dawn that is a post-COVID-19 world still riddled with numerous problems like climate change, and now the war in Ukraine. After my writing hiatus riddimsworld.com continues to provide you with the latest beats encompassing reggae, dancehall, soca, and the fast-rising Afro-beats. With a fresh perspective now, navigating the genres seems to be a whole new ball game. Dancehall is no longer what it used to be. Not concluding that it has drastically changed since I last wrote. However, due to the opening up of travel and touring we have bared witness to numerous collaborations which seem to be watering down the dancehall sound.

One artist who deserves special mention and seems to have struck it big time in the Caribbean is London’s very own Stefflon Don. The British artist rose to fame with Hurtin’ Me in 2017 and has steadily increased her fan base. 2022 has seen collaborations that include Gentleman and Stonebwoy (Can’t Lock The Dance), Spice and Yemi Alade (Bubble It), and Skeng ft Nicki Minaj in the Likkle Miss remix. However, Stefflon Don seems to be the busiest artist having collaborated with numerous dancehall acts like the ever present Vybz Kartel (Amazing), Masicka (Moments), Konshens (Mirror) and Spice in Clockwork.

It’s easy to get lost in the music as a fan of the genres but when you compare it to music of yesteryear and I mean 90s dancehall it’s almost unidentifiable barring the Jamaican patois. Nevertheless, the aforementioned tracks have enough merit to warrant their relevance and fans of the genres have a variety at least. In addition. We all have been wondering why dancehall hasn’t exploded big-time on the pop scene. So, this may be the catalyst the genre need. These collaborations ultimately work in favour of Jamaican artists who get the opportunity to reach out to another demographic, and we have seen how Popcaan’s career has evolved due to Drake’s OVO Sound inclusion.

Music is the food of love and we at riddimsworld.com will continue to give you excess of it. As the weeks go by, we will continue to keep you up-to-date with the latest happenings in the Caribbean space. Be sure to subscribe to our social media platforms and see what is trending.
