Reggae artiste Jah Cure has returned to the number one spot on the Reggae Billboard chart. The artiste who recently embarked on a tour of Europe, is now celebrating his 37th week on the chart.

Titled The Cure, the self produced album was one of last years best sellers, and was also nominated for a Grammy award. Cure's ascension to the number one spot, is a temporary relief for the local music industry, since the reggae chart has been dominated by foreign reggae acts over the last few weeks.

Also returning to the chart this week is VP Records' Reggae Gold project, which features various artistes. The effort sits at 10, pushing out Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Alkaline's debut album, New Level Unlocked, made little movement this week and continues to hold the fifth spot. Executive producer for the album, DJ Frass, recently told The Gleaner, that the album is 'Grammy worthy'. However, before winning a Grammy, Alkaline may have to hold off stiff competition from reggae artistes Stephen and Ziggy Marley, who will both be releasing albums in a matter of days.

On the Billboard 200 Albums chart, Drake continues to hold down the number one spot, while the closest Jamaican project in contention is Legend by Bob Marley and the Wailers, which currently occupies the 78th position.
