Established in 1992, Strictly The Best is the longest running reggae compilation series in the business. Following the Reggae Gold release, the annual STB series offers a more comprehensive collection of dancehall and roots sounds that have crossover potential and cater to reggae fans alike. Each year, VP carefully compiles a library of most exclusive dancehall/reggae tunes to keep the pace with the biggest Jamaican hits. Showcasing the most buzz-worthy and talented artists, STB series has been the proving ground for many of reggae's biggest stars including Sean Paul, Mavado, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Capleton and many others.
Volume 55 contains the season's most popular, cutting-edge dancehall anthems, banging in the clubs and on Caribbean radio from the likes of Vershon, Alkaline, Vybz Kartel, Mr. Vegas, Spice, Chi Ching Ching, Masicka and Dexta Daps.
As an added touch this year, each volume features a bonus album of classic dancehall hits. Vol. 55 includes anthems like "Twice Mt Age" by Shabba Ranks ft. Krystal, "Bonafide Love" by Wayne Wonder ft. Buju Banton and "Hot Gal Today" by Mr. Vegas & Sean Paul.
If you want to know what the next big reggae hit is in the streets or on the airwaves, Strictly The Best is the only compilation.
