Billboard magazine, renowned for its discerning curation, continues to spotlight fresh reggae and dancehall tracks in its monthly Billboard’s Reggae/Dancehall Fresh Picks. While it can't cover every single track, it meticulously selects a Spotify playlist.

Featured in this edition are notable artists including Skillibeng, Romain Virgo, Popcaan, Shaneil Muir, Kabaka Pyramid, and More.

Dancehall star, Skillibeng, dubbed as the leader of dancehall’s new class for some years now, earns a double spot on the list with his latest singles "Missbnasty" and "Really Like U," featuring dancehall sensation Stalk Ashley. Described as blending "the skittering snares of New York drill" with a raw dancehall beat, these tracks exude an urgent energy.

Popcaan makes his mark with the captivating single "Devil Works," featured on Upsetta and Loud City's new compilation. Meanwhile, reggae star Romain Virgo earns recognition for his album "The Gentle Man," particularly his track "Red Dress," which showcases him as a paragon of gentlemanly virtue for the next generation.

Shaneil Muir's poignant single "Protected" earns acclaim for its empowering message, portraying her surrender to divine guidance in life's battles.

Jamaican songstresses Sevana and Khalia also receive nods for their tracks "Keep Going" and "Taboo," respectively. Additionally, Soca superstar Kes (“Rise Up” Ft. Queen Omega), D-Major with "Alpha and Omega" from his latest album, and Kabaka Pyramid's "Energy" remix featuring Sean Paul & Jemere Morgan also make the list.
