Tee Jay Staying In His Own Lane


Dancehall knight Tee Jay earns his third number one hit on local YouTube streams as ‘Owna Lane’ stands tall at the summit this week.


No longer playing second fiddle to ‘Toast’ and ‘Blessings’, Tee Jay’s latest effort gives the Montegonian his third number one song on YouTube since ‘Up Top Boss’ and ‘My Type’.


According to Jamaican insights from YouTube, ‘Owna Lane’ just maintained the top spot over Cardi B’s ‘Please Me’ with 287,000 streams.


Almost nearing a month’s dominance, ‘Blessings’ by Tommy Lee Sparta collected over 280,000 streams as it was relegated to third place, while ‘Please Me’ made a meteoric rise to second place with over 285,000 streams this week.


This week has been a great week for local music as the top ten charts have four singles from Masicka, Alkaline, Quada and Kranium making strong, collective debuts.

On the artiste side, Alkaline surged ahead of Vybz Kartel by an overwhelming margin to record his first number one placing since January. Kartel, Tommy Lee Sparta, Squash and Cardi B round out the best five performing acts this week.
