Vybz Kartel wants to do what Koffee was the last artiste to do and that is to win the Reggae Grammy Award. In fact, the world boss is so confident he will go home with the award that when he shared the album for his upcoming album, he captioned it “the #GRAMMY album”.
Not even six full months after the release of his ‘To Tanesha’ album, the deejay is back with another project titled “Of Dons and Divas.”
The album will be released on June 26th, the same day Buju Banton will be releasing his album “Upside Down 2020”. While Buju has not boasted about winning a Grammy, it is likely that is album will also be in the Grammy running. So the two top flight deejays will be competing to see who wins the Reggae Grammy Award as well as chart dominance. Of course, in terms of sales, they will both be competing with the always top seller, Reggae Gold 2020.

Kartel’s album features a parade of top Dancehall artistes including Sikka Rymes, Lisa Hyper, Teejay, Skillibeng, Daddy1, Slimatic and Kartel’s sons, Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi.
According to a news release about the project, ‘”Of Dons and Divas” strays from the sound of his previous album, which was predominantly hip hop. Focusing strictly on dancehall this time around, there are 16 tracks in total, with each one classified as either ‘Dons’ or ‘Divas’, the release stated.
No stranger to success and accolades for his music, Vybz Kartel is celebrating the achievements of one of his most notable tracks; the 2016 smash hit “Fever” which has been certified Gold by the RIAA, having sold over 500,000 copies. The track was featured on one of the singer’s most successful albums, “King of the Dancehall”, which peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Reggae Charts.
