The Reggae Hits series issued by Jet Star is probably the most prolific reggae compilation ever. This cutting edge series continues in it's tradition of it's unique blend of in-demand press and chart riding exclusives. The series has set a very high standard, and this current volume is bound to become one of the most popular. Two cuts -production Bobby Digital- on the superb "I'm not a king" riddim (courtesy Delroy Wilson) by Cocoa Tea and Sanchez, plus two versions of the "La la bella" riddim by Tony Rebel and Everton Blender. Glamma Kid's massive hit "Moschino" and "Romie" by Beenie Man are two favourite dancehall tracks. The classic Studio One track "Really Together" is superbly covered by Kashief Lindo, and Sanchez does an excellent rendition of R. Kelly's "I believe I can fly" for StoneLove, riding the classic "Under mi sensi" riddim. Everton Blender's reality anthem "Lift up your head" is produced by Richard Bell who also produced "Bad News" by Beres Hammond.
Reggae Hits Volume 22 is the essential hit pack, no compromise, no fillers !
