Shenseea’s reign over Bob Marley was shorter than the leprechaun. While the Lick singer’s debut album ALPHA shot to number one on the iTunes reggae chart on the day of its release, that only lasted a day, as the very next day the king of Reggae was back on top of iTunes.

Not only did Shenseea’s taking over the top spot on then iTunes Reggae chart not last, but she failed to dethrone the king on the Billboard reggae chart. While Shenseea’s debut album only sold 843 copies (243 if you minus the 500 copies bought by Romeich) in its first week, Marley more than tripled that number with 2,948 sold.
