Beenie Man’s 1998 hit single, ‘Who Am I,’ has made it to the list of Billboard Magazine’s Top 98 Tracks of 1998.

Credited with the infamous ‘Oh Nah Nah,’ Beenie Man’s ‘Who Am I’ is described by Billboard as “one of dancehall’s few pop culture masterpieces.”

Billboard also noted that ‘Who Am I’ became such a staple that Beenie Man had to transform the track in the year 2000 with ‘Girls Dem Sugar,’ a collaboration featuring pop singer Mya. According to Billboard Charts History, ‘Who Am I’ peaked at Number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1998.
