Another appealing duet comes from Queen Ifrica and Damian Marley. “Trueversation”, a single from her album “Climb”.

The tune did also very well in the remixed version with Sean Paul. Well worth spinning for lovers is Jah Cure’s “Telephone Love”. A really hilarious dancehall tune is “Me Love My Fatty” by Style X.
On the Jambe-An riddim from Techniques Records comes the crossover hit from Charly Black, “Gyal You A Party Animal”. The tough dancehall tune “Banga” delivered by Aidonia rides the 2Face Riddim.
