editorial

With the summer solstice having just passed, the longest days of the year are ideal for squeezing

in a few more reggae tunes. Compiling choice selections by discerning radio hosts from around

the globe, here’s the latest issue of Global Reggae Charts magazine!

Jahcoustix, by virtue of his album Reunion, appears on the cover. The eighth album from the German

artist – known for blending reggae with acoustic music – currently holds the third spot on the

charts.

Otherwise, Koffee’s Rapture EP maintains its grip on the top spot, while #2 is a nice debut by Inna

De Yard. Sly and Robbie are at #4, for The Final Battle with Roots Radics, with Beres Hammond

wrapping up the initial five albums. Jah9’s Feelings continues to shine at #7, just ahead of the veteran

Lt Stitchie’s Masterclass. Previous cover artist King Mas rebounds a bit to #11, and two spots

behind there’s Shy FX with a pleasant surprise: Raggamuffin SoundTape. Noteworthy for sure:

Alborosie’s Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United has nearly done the distance, still

hanging on at #18 after eleven months! Finally, there are debuts from Sizzla and Akae Beka tying

for twentieth – it will be interesting to see how far those rise in the coming months.

Practically expected, Koffee is atop the single charts as well for “Toast,” while “Throne” is third. In

between is “Guess Who” – Tarrus Riley; Randy Valentine’s collab with Eesah and Runkus, “Blessed,”

enters at #4, followed by Jah9 for “Heaven (Ready Fi Di Feeling).” Further down, there’s Hempress

Sativa at #7, and then Alborosie & Chronixx with “Contradiction” at #8, celebrating a full year on

the charts. Much of the remaining tunes are fresh work from established artists, including the latest

from Protoje, Skip Marley, Jah Cure, Buju Banton, and Jesse Royal, as well as legends Keith and

Tex with their latest “Global Politics.”

Plenty of changes on the riddim side, with nothing remaining from last month’s charts. New riddims

are the General A General Riddim (Frankie) sits at #1, the Lioness Order Riddim (Oneness)

is at #2, and the Tenement Yard 2019 Riddim (Crossfire Sound) appears at #5. The Sweep It Out

Riddim (149) and the Lion Pride Riddim: Reloaded (Upsetta) both return to the charts, at #3 and #4

respectively.

Hope all’s well, and that the bass lines are mighty,

Peace from Colorado, USA

Jahcoustix

Known for his entrancing blend of reggae and acoustic

music, Germany’s Jahcoustix appears at #3 on this

month’s album charts. The strong debut showing by

Reunion is especially relevant given the lack of a charting

single, which reverifies the potential of well-presented

reggae full-lengths even in the digital era. Built around

productions by Oneness, Reunion seems to be a look back

as much as a look forward, a vibe obviously appreciated

by our voters!
