Jah Cure no longer has the number one reggae album. The reggae crooner was knocked out of the number one position by the compilation album, Reggae Gold.
The grammy nominated album was only knocked down to the number two position, however, so Jah Cure is still the favorite to win the Reggae grammy award this year.
The album is now spending its 27th week on the Reggae Top Ten Billboard chart.
There are no reggae artistes on the Billboard Hot 100 this week; however, OMI continues to reap success in Canada with his effort, Cheerleader. The record, which became his breakout hit in 2015, currently sits at No. 26 on the Canadian Billboard chart, one place below R. City’s dancehall-inspired record Locked Away, which features Adam Levine.
OMI also holds the No. 49 spot on the Canadian Billboard Chart with his follow-up single Hula Hoop.
Veteran reggae and gospel artiste Carlene Davis still remains the only gospel act on the chart with her effort, Dripping Blood. The album that peaked at No. 2 now sits at No. 9 after 21 weeks on the chart.
Noticeably, there are no Marley albums on the Billboard Reggae Chart this week, which is an extremely rare occasion. However, the late great King of Reggae is still the only reggae act with an album on the Billboard 200 albums chart with Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers sitting at No. 99, ahead of several recently released albums by United States-based artistes.
