Walshy Fire: Prophetic Energy

Buju Banton New Album

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *This is our 200th official episode of Reggae Lover. We talked about “Upside Down 2020,” the long-anticipated album from Buju Banton.* -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There’s such a thing as an instant classic, and this Buju Banton new album is that.Listen to our in-depth analysis of every track. *Buju Banton New Album, Sales and Streams* ------------------------------------------ We also talked about record sales and chart performance.The album got close to 3000 sales in its first week. That includes all physical copies, digital downloads as well as streams.What is a “stream?” What is the stream worth? A stream is a fraction of a sale. So you need a certain amount of streams, whether it be songs or the entire album, in order for it to equal one sale. It was actually a strong debut compared to other releases from Jamaican artists.We look at the fact that *Vybz Kartel* released his album on the same day as Buju.His album, “ Of Dons and Divas ( https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/vybz-kartel-drops-off-of-dons-and-divas-new-mixtape.120499.html ) ,” sold a little less than half that of “Upside Down 2020.” Koffee’s “Rapture,” EP which won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album had less than 600 first week sales. We have had episodes ( https://reggaelover.com/blog-podcast-reggae-lover/ ) about Billboard, sales, and what it means for Jamaican reggae artists. Music is actually the marketing tool for touring, merchandise sales, etc. In that case, Buju is in good hands with Roc Nation. I’m sure they’ll exploit this album very well. *Chart Performance* ------------------- The Buju Banton new album, “Upside Down 2020” debuted in the number two position on the Billboard reggae chart. Also, on the Itunes chart for reggae music, it debuted at number two.At the time, Bob Marley held the number one slot on both of those charts.Vybz Kartel’s “Of Dons and Divas” debuted at the number six position on both charts. *The Tastemaker Segment* ------------------------ Last week’s episode, we didn’t get to go into this segment at all. As a result, there were a few things that I wanted to make sure that we mentioned. Firstly, the *Dré Island album* , a debut album that features *Popcaan* on the “We Pray” single. The name of the album is “ Now I Rise ( https://www.vibe.com/2020/05/dre-island-now-rise-boomshots-interview ).”I bumped it or a good little while when it first came out. He’s doing press for the album right now. Go look for “Now I Rise” from Dre Island. Very good music. If you’re a fan of Chronixx or Damian Marley, you’ll definitely love Dre Island.He’s very talented in his own right.He has a song out with Tory Lanez. So he has crossover songs as well. Secondly, there’s an awesome release from Grammy nominee, *Etana*. An album entitled “ Gemini ( https://www.reggaeville.com/artist-details/etana/releases/release/etana-gemini/ ) ,” which debuted on June 19th, distributed by Kojak WorldWide. That album is official. Very good production. “Gemini” brings a strong balance of dancehall, reggae, and lovers’ rock. There is some roots reggae flavor as well. *Kabaka Pyramid* has a feature on there. Nomadz has a feature on there along with an artist known as Yhasha. This may be her best album to date. It’s definitely one of my favorites. Every song has a good vibe. I would add the whole album to my quarantine playlist. Take my recommendation. This is good, solid music. Thirdly, we have to talk about *Koffee*. Her new single entitled “ Pressure ( https://pitchfork.com/news/koffee-shares-new-song-pressure-listen/ ) ” is an inspirational song for the times.She speaks to the ghetto youths, but she’s also talking to every man. Every one of us is under pressure, if not now, at some point. It’s that type of message that can hel

That amazing history includes Mento, Ska, Rock Steady, *Reggae* , Dub, and *Dancehall*. Reggae sub-genres Nyahbingi, lover’s rock, and rub-a-dub are also popular styles. There was a peak in dancehall popularity in the early 2000s followed by a decline in quality reggae. At that time vinyl formats transitioned to the CD. Then CDs went out and digital downloads came in. As a result, DJs started using laptops to play music and consumers turned to personal electronics.
