CHART WATCH:

OMI's Cheerleader broke his steady decline on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, moving up to No. 43 from No. 47 last week.

Cheerleader is now in its 32nd week on the chart, after peaking at No.1. However, the No.1 spot is currently held by the lady of the moment, Adele, who broke records last month after selling three million copies of her album, titled 25, in just under two weeks.

Adele's album is currently fixed at the No.1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, while Bob Marley and the Wailers are once again the highest-ranked Jamaican artistes on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, with the effort titled Legend. The album has been on the chart for 393 weeks and now sits at No.144.

OMI, who was the only other Jamaican on the Top 200 albums chart, with his debut effort Me 4 U failed to keep his spot this week and was sent packing.

As far as the Billboard Reggae Chart is concerned, Iba MaHr received his first entry into the Top 10 with his debut studio album titled, Diamond Sox. The album debuted at No.9 and sits ahead of Carlene Davis' Dripping Blood gospel album, which now occupies the No. 10 spot. Overseas-based reggae band Christafari, occupies the No.1 spot with their effort titled Anthems.
