VP RECORDS PRESENTS STRICTLY THE BEST 40 & 41 – Two Installments of the Most Progressive Hits in Dancehall, Roots & Lover’s Rock
VP Records have doubled up their winning streak with a pair of (STB) Strictly the Best’s trail-blazing volumes 40 and 41. These party-starting sets feature reggae anthems fitting the occasion from the hottest stars including Elephant Man, Mavado, Busy Signal, Courtney John, Queen Ifrica, Etana, Buju Banton, Beres Hammond, John Legend and many more.
Strictly the Best 40 focuses on the smoother side of reggae from John Legend featuring Buju Banton’s “Can’t Be My Lover (Curtis Lynch Remix)” to “Baby Girl I Am Alone” by Jah Vinci. Rounding out the compilation are warrior princess Etana lamenting “Heart Broken” and singjay Courtney John rejoicing “Lucky Man”. All 17 tracks display the many complexions of love and lost.
Strictly the Best 41 bursts with current and future hits including Mr. Vegas #1 hit “I Am Blessed”, and Elephant Man’s “Swing”. STB 41 keeps the fearless spirit alive with Mavado’s scorcher “Mocking Bird” and the infectious Beenie Man cut, “Gimme Gimme”.
