You can listen to this week's mix here: Dance Hall

You and I both know that you uncontrollably danced the whole time you listened to this mix. Wanna know why? All of these songs have Dance Hall vibes! What is dance hall? WELL.. dance hall is what we refer to as Jamaican rhythms. The most prevalent Jamaican link you'll hear in the mix is in Rihanna's song Work, but that is 100% due to her growing up in Barbados. Dance hall was created to get people dancing. Most of the songs on the US Top 40 have some sort of dance hall vibe in them, because the music industry is noticing that songs with this type of influence are typically more successful on the radio. Its common sense, music that makes people want to dance will be listened to more often. Crazy!

I hope you enjoy yourself and dance along with this week's mix! 

What is your favorite track in this week's playlist? Mine has to be Work by Rihanna and Drake, mostly because the song has been out for 3 weeks and I still have no idea what Rih-Rih is saying, but also because it is CONSTANTLY stuck in my head.
