Hype Life Magazine has learned that Lady Saw’s latest album “Alter Ego” debuts at number six on Billboard’s Reggae Album chart with first-week sales of 110 copies.
This is Saw’s fifth entry on the chart. Her last album, 2010’s My Way failed to enter, while 2007’s Walk Out peaked at number eight.
The album puts her creativity on full display and showcases both the racy side of “Lady Saw” and the more subdued side of “Marion Hall.”
The album features collaborations with Beres Hammond, Estelle, Ali Campbell of UB40 and Flo-Rida.
Judging by her latest singles, “Hoping” and “Me & Mi X”, Lady Saw is adding some extra sizzle to the holiday season and posed to ignite the charts. The Queen is back and she means business.
Alter Ego features collaborations with American rapper Flo Rida, Beres Hammond and UB40 singer Ali Campbell.
Elsewhere on the Billboard Reggae Album chart, I Rise by Etana is at number three for the third consecutive week. The album was number one for one week and has sold 1,100 copies to date.
American reggae band SOJA has the number one album with Amid the Noise and Haste. Released in August, it has sold over 22,347 copies.
