Global Reggae Charts – Issue 5 // August 2017

The fourth edition of the Global Reggae Charts magazine is out now. With features about Samory I and his way of doing „slow music“, and Vitowar, one of our voters from Italy.

On the single charts, we have some new entries on the lower positions, but a lot of the big productions manifested their strong positions. Damian Marley – Medication feat. Stephen Marley stays at #1 and Chronixx – Skanking Sweet climbed from #4 to #2. Collie Buddz – Good Life made a re-entry after two months off the charts at #9. New entries on the single charts coming from Jesse Royal (#10), Estelle feat. Tarrus Riley (#13), Mortimer (#16) and Romain Virgo (#18). Chronixx has a new entry with „Ghetto Paradise“ at #19 as well and is dominating the charts with four tracks on the single charts and the – not unexpected and definitely earned – #1 on the album charts. It’s interesting, that all three top positions on the album charts are new entries. Chronixx, Samory I and Damian Marley. Chronixx and Damian Marley have been expected to enter the charts at a top position, but Samory I couldn’t have been too sure about it. That’s why we decided to honour his success with a feature article. Two more new entries coming from Courtney John and Perfect Giddimani.

The charts are online and can be found at Voter registration is now open as well. Visit the site for all the details.
