Alkaline proves once again that he is the leading artist in dancehall this year when his single “Pretty Girl Team” hit the 10 million mark on his Vevo channel in five months. The track was released on March 20 this year and was an instant hit among dancehall fans. What’s even more impressive is that the Vendetta boss did it without shooting a video for the song.
2017 has been a great year for dancehall music on a whole with massive expansion on the international scene and several local artists have been capitalizing on the growth of the genre. Artists like Alkaline, Aidonia, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, and more have been seeing huge success in the global mainstream music market this year. Just last month, Vybz Kartel’s single “Fever” hit the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart making it his second major charting single over his career.
