submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#41 "No Letting Go," Wayne Wonder (VP)

2003 may well be remembered as the year of the Diwali rhythm, an Indian-influenced riddim track that took Jamaica by storm and spawned three-count-'em-three worldwide hits: the inescapable (and poorly-wearing) "Get Busy" by Sean Paul, personality-less Lumidee's "Never Leave You (Uh-Oooh, Uh-Oooh)," and this sweet-as-sugar synthed-up track from Wonder. I considered being cheeky and putting all three songs in this slot, but decided eventually to leave it to "No Letting Go" because it's the only one of the three I can enjoy repeatedly. R&B-leaning lover's rocking smoove reggae, it goes down easy with no aftertaste. The remix - which simply adds a verse by L.L. Cool J - is fine as well.
