Reggae’s biggest annual compilation, Reggae Gold 2010, is out now and features some of the hottest anthems for the summer. Featuring hits from Nas & Damian Marley, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Shaggy and many more, you better rush out to get this while the weather is gorgeous, and can crank this in your car stereo on the way to the beach.
A wide range of hits, including dancehall, reggae, lover’s rock and hip hop, are what brings together Reggae Gold 2010, and features what is big in the mainstream world and the clubs. For over 17 years, this compilation has been released and gives fans one direct source for what is big right now. If you didn’t know, you have no excuse as this is one stop shopping and can get connected. Come on, you don’t want to miss out when you go to the clubs and are standing there not singing along!
My favorites are Michael Franti & Spearhead which really has a full head of steam heading into the summer! A fun, bouncy anthem that will be played continuously throughout the summer months. Nas & Damian Marley, Sean Paul, and Gyptian provide strong tracks and the rest of the compilations is a great collection.
Bottom Line: Reggae Gold 2010 provides an excellent overview of what is hot right now in the reggae music world!
