editorial<br />

Welcome to a new edition of the <strong>Global</strong> <strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong> and a happy new year to all of you! To start<br />

the new year appropriately, this month’s edition comes with a major update of the charts. We are<br />

introducing a new, frequently requested category: Riddim <strong>Charts</strong>. But that’s not all. We also<br />

looked at 2017 data to compile annual charts for the past year. As it certainly was a rich reggae<br />

year, expect to find plenty of great music.<br />

Let me give you a bit more background on both topics. The riddim culture is a unique and important<br />

aspect of reggae and dancehall. As such, it makes a lot of sense to reflect it in our charts. Why,<br />

then, didn’t we implement it right from the start? Simply, we wanted to make sure that our voter<br />

pool is large enough and contains enough people who are knowledgeable on the subject.<br />

The reality is that the shift to digital music somewhat hurt the relevance of riddims.<br />

When songs were distributed on physical media, the riddim compilation was a mainstay in any<br />

reggae fan’s collection. But digital music distribution unbundled the album. All of a sudden, single<br />

songs were a lot easier to buy and access, so more fans started to buy songs instead of LPs. While<br />

that didn’t stop people from producing great riddims nor artists from voicing them, the casual<br />

reggae fan’s awareness of specific riddims certainly dropped compared to the glory days of the<br />

(Greensleeves) one-riddim compilation CD. Nevertheless, the riddim remains an important aspect<br />

of reggae culture. Thus, we are happy that the <strong>Global</strong> <strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong> now have an appropriate<br />

stage to feature them on.<br />

A few words on the annual charts, too. The GRCs are based on expert votes. Thus, we took the<br />

entire votes of last year and, using the identical geographic weighting we use in the regular charts,<br />

produced a list of all votes a song or album received over the entire period our data covers. As you<br />

can see, we kept it simple. It is important to mention, though, that we only launched the charts in<br />

May. So the annual charts don’t cover the period from <strong>January</strong> to April, which means they aren’t<br />

reflective of the entire year. But since 66% of a year worth of data is certainly better than 0% and<br />

because several people asked for it, we decided to release the annual data nonetheless.<br />

A second interesting effect of our chosen methodology is that some releases who never appeared<br />

in our Top 10 or 20 made it into the annual charts. Those releases barely didn’t make it on to the<br />

charts for several months, but, over time, accumulated more votes than other releases that made<br />

the charts once. So you could say that the annual charts are particularly friendly to releases with<br />

staying power. Which, in our opinion, is a neat side-effect of our chosen approach.<br />

Nuff said. Now have fun digging into this packed edition of the GRC!<br />

Cheers<br />

Jesse<br />

Royal<br />

Team Builder<br />

ARTIST FEATURE<br />

One storyline in reggae these days is that many artists<br />

opt to only release their debut album once they<br />

have built a significant profile. Think Chronixx, think<br />

Samory I. The most recent member of the we-released-our-debut-LP-when-we-already-were-superstarsin-reggae-club<br />

is Jesse Royal. When the 28-year old<br />

released his Lily of da Valley album in October 2017<br />

(it has topped the <strong>Global</strong> <strong>Reggae</strong> <strong>Charts</strong> for three<br />

straight months since!), he already had a bunch of<br />

genre superhits and plenty of experience as a touring<br />

musician under his belt.<br />

You might argue that Royal took his first steps in music<br />

under a lucky star: he went to school with Daniel<br />

Marley, son of Ziggy Marley, and launched his first<br />

musical experiments with him. When you just start<br />

out in reggae and your first collaborator is an heir of<br />

Bob Marley, at the very least you have a good story<br />

to tell your own grandchildren one day. But in Royal’s<br />

case, of course, that was only the beginning.<br />

Thanks to another friend (and important collaborator<br />

to this day), Kareem “Remus” Burrell, he got in touch<br />

with another <strong>Reggae</strong> and Dancehall legend: Kareem’s<br />

father, the late Phillip “Fatis” Burrell, head of the<br />

famous Xterminator label. He produced several of<br />

Royal’s first released songs like Singing The Blues or<br />

Bittersweet before he passed away.<br />

If you are now under the impression that Royal has<br />

a knack for finding talented people to work with, you<br />

are correct. Whether on the musical or the business<br />

side, Jesse Royal is apparently drawing the attention<br />

of gifted individuals. That in itself, combined with his<br />

willingness to actually team-up with them, should be<br />

considered as a major strength. Working with other<br />

creative personalities - who usually have strong artistic<br />

opinions themselves - doesn’t come naturally to<br />

all artists. It’s a process that comes with discussion,<br />

head-butting, and compromise. While the results in<br />

many cases benefit from joint inspiration, the path to<br />

get there isn’t necessarily convenient.<br />

But look throughout Royal’s history, and you’ll find<br />

that he has sought talented collaborators over and<br />

over again. For his third mixtape Royally Speaking,<br />

a major career milestone, he worked with Major<br />

Lazer’s Walshy Fire - and delivered a release that<br />

global reggae charts | issue 9 / jan <strong>2018</strong> 8


global reggae charts<br />

featured artist<br />

was critically appraised all over the globe. (Though<br />

it should be noted that the mixtape was recorded<br />

in merely a day; presumably it was a rather smooth<br />

process in that case.) For Lily of da Valley, Royal worked<br />

intensely with Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown.<br />

Brown is one of the most prolific producers in modern<br />

reggae, having credits on works with artists<br />

like Damian Marley, T.O.K., and Morgan Heritage. He<br />

was also heavily involved as a producer and musician<br />

in Raging Fyah’s Grammy-nominated album<br />

Everlasting. Little wonder that, in a recent interview<br />

with Gibbo, Royal described the making of his album<br />

as a constant back and forth between him and Riff<br />

Raff. But while many artists, particularly early in their<br />

careers, would be annoyed by such a process, Royal<br />

has a different perspective:<br />

“We overstand each other but we are two very creative<br />

individuals. And for me that [back and forth] is<br />

necessary for the climate. We both have to want the<br />

best out of this.”<br />

Working on your debut album with such artistic maturity<br />

is certainly one of the benefits that comes with<br />

not rushing things or, as I formerly called it, the Slow<br />

Music approach.<br />

In the background, Royal assembled a top-notch<br />

team as well. His album appeared on Easy Star Records.<br />

The New York-based label is a major player in<br />

what they call progressive reggae. Easy Star’s global<br />

artist line-up includes, among others, Gentleman’s<br />

Dub Club, New Kingston, The Skints, and of course<br />

the famous Easy Star All-Stars of Dub Side of the<br />

Moon fame. In a reggae label landscape which has<br />

become very fragmented - as many artists build<br />

their own, independent infrastructure; some more,<br />

some less successfully - Easy Star is one of the few<br />

remaining bigger reggae-centric players with a great,<br />

professional reputation. While hidden from plain<br />

sight for most fans, it’s a factor that matters when it<br />

comes to success.<br />

The same goes for management and marketing. And<br />

Royal is well-positioned there as well: his manager<br />

is Lukes Morgan, a member of Morgan Heritage and<br />

the manager of Raging Fyah. And his marketing is taken<br />

care of by Cristy Barber, herself a reggae industry<br />

savant. Not only is Barber a (Grammy-winning)<br />

producer, but she is also the former President of Tuff<br />

Gong and Vice President of Marketing & Promotion<br />

at VP. Last but not least Team Royal has the aforementioned<br />

Kareem “Remus” Burrell, Royal’s good<br />

friend from school who now heads his own production<br />

company XTM.Nation and who still works closely<br />

with Royal.<br />

Adding it all together, it’s fair to say that Royal managed<br />

to gather an impressive roster around him.<br />

It contains all the ingredients you need to succeed:<br />

talent, experience, great connections, and professionalism.<br />

This doesn’t happen by accident. It takes<br />

talent, dedication, and maturity to build a roster like<br />

this. Royal has proven that he brings those attributes<br />

to the table. Now that he has assembled his team, it<br />

provides a solid foundation for his future career.<br />

When asked in interviews why it took so long to release<br />

his debut album, Royal regularly responds that<br />

it’s not about when we want things to happen but<br />

rather to let nature take its course until the time is<br />

ripe. Because, as he says, everything happens in its<br />

perfect time. Apparently Royal figured the time was<br />

perfect now. Judging by his current team, it’s a very<br />

reasonable bet to make.<br />
