O.N.E. At Number One!
The top echelon of the Skempi Top 40 has recently experienced a near complete recasting. The no.1 spot has namely been invaded by O.N.E., Curaçao’s newest All Around Caribbean band which features the talents of Dibo D, Cizzle, Harvey Isidora, Johnny Blaze and Gilmar Fraites.
They were able to shake off No Game’s recent nostalgia-laced chart dominance, which happens to be another All Around Caribbean band. Their prevalence in the top 3 remains steadfast, however, with two of their singles “Nan No Por Kibra Nos (Brian Dekkers)” and “Konsenshi Of Kurason” continuing to hold sway at number 2 and number 3.
This notwithstanding the hold of the chart titans Menasa and Gentz, although slackening, remains strong with “Spuit Model” and “Kruel” continuing to cling to the number 4 and number 8 slots.
But nonetheless new faces continue to emerge. Other notable newcomers to the party are Chaika and Randal Corsen – who, incidentally, is also featured on this week’s number one single. Their singles “Beleng (Radio Edit)” and “Limpiado Di Sapatu” have been catapulted into the number 6 and number 7 spots respectively.
