Chart Wise - Shaggy climbs into the Top 20 with "I Need Your Love"

Well what do you know! Shaggy once again proves why he is one of Jamaica's music heavyweight when his sizzling summer single, "I Need Your Love" featuring MOHOMBI, FAYDEE and COSTI moves up from 21* - 19* effectively entering the Top 20 of the US Top 40 charts. This is a re-entry for the It Wasn't Me artiste who entered the chart at #39 in March see more

We have been watching Omi's chart run on the Rhythmic chart, with a view that it can make the Top 40 chart #1 spot when we notice a familiar name to Jamaica's music industry, popular DJ/Producer Major Lazer's entry and quick moving pace up the charts as well.  This week Major Lazer also enters the top 20 in their fifth week on the chart with "Lean On," up from 23* - 17* ahead of Shaggy, in spins (top 15 in audience), and up 1025 spins.

OMI also goes Top 15 at Rhythmic with "Cheerleader" and is still poised for hit at the top of the US Top 40 charts.


On Billboard Reggae Albums chart:
Bob Marley and The Wailers "Easy Skanking in Boston 78" remains at #1. The album hit #1 last week and is now in it's second week ahead of Rebulution's "Count On Me" 52 weeks running album. Etana's "I Rise" album holds the #6 spot on the Billboard Top ahead of Morgan Heritage 'Strictly Roots" now at #7 and Chronixx "Dread and Terrible" at #8 and running a 51 weeks long marathon on the chart.
