Pre-orders for 'Strictly the Best 57' now available
VP Records' iconic Strictly the Best compilation series is back with two new albums volumes 56 and 57.
Both are now available for pre-order and will be released for physical worldwide distribution on November 17.
Volume 57 features new and exclusive dancehall such as Roll Clean from Masicka, Hot Gal from DJ Spooky, and Time Up from current dancehall sensation Shenseea.
Also from Shenseea is Movie, the remix to Loodi the smash single with Vybz Kartel which amassed over 11 million views on YouTube.
Alkaline's Pretty Girl Team, which has amassed over 12 million views, and Ding Dong's Fling (Yuh Shoulda), which recently went viral with reggae sensation Chronixx doing the dance, are also on the compilation.
The energetic Skank & Rave by Beenie Man, Voicemail and Ding Dong add tremendous energy, while 21 by Dexta Daps adds smooth, rhythmic vibes.
Stonebwoy's My Name rounds out the album with the hot Afrobeat jam.
"Strictly the Best continues to be one of our most anticipated releases each year due to its ability to maintain a loyal following while being the perfect introduction for those new to reggae and dancehall," said Christopher Chin, president of VP Records. "The 2017 editions have a nice balance of popular artistes as well as exclusive tracks for a great listening experience."
This year Strictly The Best has teamed up with Beach Roadtrip Weekend (BRT) for a DJ contest that gives contestants the opportunity to join the team as a DJ on BRT's 2018 tour.
The top five mixtapes are now able to be judged by followers of the BRT Page via Soundcloud, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and the website.
The finalists of that round will then be invited to the Riviera Beach in Florida this November during BRT Weekend to have the chance to DJ a set for a chance at the final prize.
