The Jamaican artiste, who recently embarked on an European tour, is now celebrating his 37th week on the chart.
Titled “The Cure,” the self-produced album was one of last year’s best sellers and was also nominated for a Grammy award. Cure’s ascension to the number one spot is a temporary relief for the music industry in Jamaica since the reggae chart has been dominated by foreign reggae acts over the last few weeks.
Also returning to the chart this week is VP Records’ Reggae Gold project, which features various artistes. The effort sits at 10, pushing out Bob Marley and the Wailers.
Alkaline’s debut album, New Level Unlocked, made little movement this week and continues to hold the fifth spot. Executive producer for the album, DJ Frass, recently told The Gleaner, that the album is ‘Grammy worthy’. However, before winning a Grammy, Alkaline may have to hold off stiff competition from reggae artistes Stephen and Ziggy Marley, who will both be releasing albums in a matter of days.
On the Billboard 200 Albums chart, Drake continues to hold down the number one spot, while the closest Jamaican project in contention is Legend by Bob Marley and the Wailers, which currently occupies the 78th position.
