Acclaimed Reggae singer, Tarrus Riley has scored instant success with his new studio album, Love Situation, as it has topped this week's Billboard Reggae Album chart, according to reports Thursday.

The lover’s rock album, released February 4th, is the second album produced by a Jamaican artist in the last two week to top the chart following Papa San’s new album, One Blood. The latter displaced Snoop Lion’s Grammy-nominated project, Reincarnated, which had topped the Billboard chart since last year.

Love Situation is the first album of Riley’s to reach number one on the American’s magazine chart. His 2009 effort, Contagious peaked at number five while his previous effort, Parables in 2007 peaked five place lower at 10.

Riley has been promoting the first single off Love Situation dubbed, Dem a Watch, which has already garnered steady airplay in Jamaica since its release a week prior to the album’s unveiling.

Love Situation is currently available on iTunes and is co-produced by Dean Fraser, Mitchum 'Khan' Chin and Jordan McClure.
