The latest album to push Bob Marley's Legend from the top slot on the iTunes chart is 4 the People (Rebel Souljahz). The new release is at the peak of the listing for up to just after 7 a.m., yesterday.

It is a repetitive situation - a new album comes out and pushes Marley down a place, then it fades away and it is back to the Tuff Gong doing business as usual. So Legend (Remastered) is second and Legend (Deluxe Edition) is third. Lost in Paradise (Common Kings) is fourth on the iTunes listing, and Rebelution's Falling Into Place is fifth.

Another new set, Get Soca 2017, is sixth, Gold (Bob Marley & The Wailers) is seventh, and Set in Stone (Stick Figure) is eighth. Rounding out the top 10 is Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley's Welcome to Jamrock in ninth position and Pacific Dub's Take Me Away EP in 10th.




Vegas' Soul Therapy is another new set on the chart, holding the 11th spot. The Billboard chart-topper, Fortunate Youth (Fortunate Youth), holds the No. 12 iTunes spot, Rebelution's Live at Red Rocks is 13th and they have another album, Courage to Grow, at No. 15. In between them is The Spark (Sol Seed).

Itation has a double as well, Hotting Up at 16 and Time Bomb at 20. Another Marley set is in the mix, as Exodus (Remastered) is at No. 17.

Buju Banton's 'Til Shiloh is at No. 23, the remastered soundtrack for The Harder They Come is at 26, and Ziggy Marley's Love Is My Religion is 27th. The new release World Fete Riddim various artiste compilation, closes out the top 30, while another rhythm-driven album, Money House Riddim, is at 31.

Ziggy Marley's recent Grammy winner is at 41.
