After a strong debut at number four last week, Jemere Morgan has made more progress up the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart. His Transition album is number two on the listing for the week of February 4, 2017, with the long-standing Falling Into Place (Rebelution) standing between it and the top spot.

Falling Into Place topped the listing last week as well, and is now in its 33rd week on the chart.

Enjoying a resurgence is Stephen Marley's Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life. The former number one had fallen out of the top 10 and was ninth last week, But, at a half-year on the Billboard chart, the set has leapt back into the top five to be at number four, just behind J Boog's Wash House Ting, which lost its previous week's slot to Transition.

At 62 weeks, Stick Figure's Set in Stone has passed a year on the chart and is still a major force, holding the number five spot.

In the lower half of the top 10, London McNamara's A Dollar Short moved up a place from last week to be at six. Two in concert albums - Live at Red Rocks (Rebelution) and The Legend Live: Santa Barbara - County Bowl, November 25th, 1979 (Bob Marley and the Wailers) - are cheek and jowl at seven and eight, respectively. Both Matisyahu's Release the Bound (number nine) and Iration's Hotting Up (number 10) moved back up into the top 10, the latter now in its 70th week on the ranking.

Everlasting (Raging Fyah) and 9 (Jah9) have both re-entered the chart, the band at number 13 and the solo lady at 15. At number 11 is Nothing More to Say (The Frightnrs), 12th is Double Up (Iration) and holding firm at number 14 is Joss Stone's Water For Your Soul, which has now been on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart for 74 weeks.
