Best Dancehall Reggae Artists

Dancehall reggae is a specific genre of reggae music.

The Top Ten

1 Shatta Wale

Shatta have revived reggae dancehall in not only Ghana but Africa, and today every youth is loving up to him as role model

He ( Shatta WALE ) has brought dance hall music to the youth of Ghana and Africa in general. Many people have learnt the real lessons of life through some of his songs like # Life to God and # Reality. I think he deserves to be the best and I thank all those who voted for him. Guys he never gives up..

He is the best dancehall artist in Africa.. I love shatta so much...#continue. Do your tin

The message and melody in his delivery is superb and balanced

2 Vybz Kartel

Kartel has the most hits in dancehall and that's a fact, no dancehall artist has dominated the industry for as long as he did and is still doing even from behind bars and the fact he writes all his songs himself is just incredible, all of the artist on this list had or have ghost writers and they still haven't put out as much hits as the great vybz kartel

The most versatile artist in the game, unfortunately incarceration has hindered his career from reaching its full potential.

Vybz Kartel possibly has the most successful dancehall career within Jamaica and the Caribbean. He has hit after hit and has the biggest influence over Jamaica than any of these artists ever had.

Best Dance hall Artists with out doubt lyrical content and versatility out of this world.

3 Sean Paul

Sean Paul followed up on what Shabba Ranks started by keeping dancehall music playing on the radio.

Sean Paul I think you are best artist in the world

The man help promoted dancehall internationally

6 Alkaline

Alkaline has been my favourite artist for 4 years now and one of the best artist I love and support #vendetta for life

Consistently creating music watch out for 2016 which will be his year- hits include - moving mountains, things me love, more than happy, how it feel, champion boy many more etc...- Alkaline is believed to be the heir to the throne of dancehall after vybz Kartel

He is on his way to becoming the king of dancehall

Alkaline the youngest and top make me lean more about the sound. Alka is the best always

7 Buju Banton

Buju Banton is the greatest dancehall artiste of all time. His dancehall album Mr. Mention has the most hits of any dancehall albums. Check it out. And in reggae he is only second to Bob Marley.

Voice of the Jamaican people unfortunately hindered by incarceration

Buju is the greatest artist! I love the song journey! I can't wait for his concert over here when he is freed

Buju is the best

8 Beenie Man

He stay current, where a lot of artist has fallen off. He still finds hits and his stage performance and presence is second to none in dancehall. He also had mainstream success and still stayed relevant in Jamaica.
