CHART WATCH:

The Cure, released by Grammy-nominated reggae artiste Jah Cure, continues to rise on the Reggae Billboard chart following his nomination.

The album, which was No. 3 last week, has stepped up one place to the No. 2 spot this week, only beaten by VP Records' Reggae Gold album, which features various artistes. Reggae Gold continues to hold the No. 1 spot and is now enjoying its 21st week on the chart.

Bob Marley and The Wailers' Easy Skanking In Boston 78 also moved up the charts this week following the conclusion of the Welcome to Jamrock Cruise. The album has been on the chart for 40 weeks and now sits at No. 9.

Notably, reggae crooner Iba MaHr failed to hold a spot in the top 10 and fell from grace after just one week in contention with his recent debut album, Diamond Sox.

Bob Marley's Legend: Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers also received positive sales this week and now sits at No. 168 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album, which was released more than five years ago, sits ahead of recently released albums like Black Rose by R&B singer Tyrese and The Game's Documentary, among others.

Meanwhile on the Hot 100 chart, Canadian singer-rapper Tory Lanez sits at No. 30 with his hit single, Say It, while Jamaican artiste OMI moved up three places to No. 43 this week with Cheerleader.
