BETTER TOMORROW
Etana
(FMR/Universal)

While Rita Marley might be the undisputed queen of reggae, Etana has finally made an album that establishes her credentials to be considered a serious contender to the throne.

Her blow-away performance at Raggamuffin in Rotorua earlier this year, introduced her to reggae's second spiritual home and her third album shows a fierce determination to get back to her Kingston roots and exudes a major dose of positivity.

The simple righteous sentiments of songs such as The Prayer, Smile and Better Tomorrow have a lyrical backbone and sweet soulfulness that's as upright as the funky, sunshine back beats.
