"Tropicalfete's Top 100 International Caribbean Songs countdown for the year is a ranking of recorded music according to popularity determined by air play, music sales, club play and online hits," explained Tropicalfete CEDO Alton Aimable.
"Our chart is not limited to genre. It shows the diversity and the creativity of Caribbean people around the world, and most of all, their impact on the global audience. Therefore, Reggae, R&B, Dancehall, Hip Hop, Zouk, Kompa, Soca, Reggaeton, Salsa, Calypso, etc. make up Tropicalfete's CountDown Top 100 International Caribbean Songs for the year.
"Weekly charts were calculated throughout the year to come up with a summary for the year. Charts have become an increasingly important way to measure the commercial success of individual songs and Tropicalfete's Top 100 is a chart that reflects the songs the people consume," he added.
It marks the first trip to the Tropicalfete spotlight on the Capsicum label for Sledge whose single "No Better Than I" was re-released in 2014 from the Hartford, CT-based indie's inaugural "Reggae-In-Fusion" album, and the second for Sweet C whose single "Someone To Believe In" was just released in early December as a sequel to her gospel/reggae fusion smash "I Prayed":
