A ‘Live Wire’ new entry on static listing

Not even a new entry named Live Wire can enliven the Billboard Reggae Albums listing for up to Saturday, March 10. That set by Leilani Wolfgram is at number three, leaving the top two sets for last week - the various artistes Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica, ahead of Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley's Stony Hill - unchanged.

So it is a rather static ranking, as Live Wire takes the place of Get Soca 2018, which has slipped a mere spot to number four. The Sister Caro EP by Henricci, retains its number five spot, as does Chronixx's Chronology at number six. However, although remaining in place, Chronology still earns the nod for 'greatest gainer'.

Hollie Cook's Vessel of Love, has the dubious distinction of losing the most ground on a chart with minimal movement from last week, the set slipping three places to number seven. The Green's Marching Orders, is up two places to be eighth, while Khago's Walk A Mile, continues to lose ground. After debuting in fifth two weeks ago, last week it was seventh and is now at ninth. Closing off the top 10 is re-entry, the Havana Meets Kingston soundtrack by Mista Savona.
