This, despite a less than impressive sales figure early on as the album, released February 18th, sold just 2,160 copies in its first week. This nearly doubles the first-week output his last album, Tomahawk Technique (2012) provided, selling over 1,200 copies.

However, combining both sales figures, they are a far cry from his multi-platinum effort, Dutty Rock in 2002, which sold nearly 20 times more copies at 65,000 in its first week.

He recently performed his new single from the album, Want Dem All alongside song collaborator, Konshens on the Arsenio Hall Show last month and has since released the official video for the song.

Meanwhile, the latest edition of the Billboard Reggae Albums chart features appearances from Papa San, whose previously chart-topping album, One Blood hails at number five, selling just under 2,000 copies to date. Tarrus Riley’s new album, Love Situation is two places higher, selling around 1,126 copies to date while Gyptian’s Sex, Love and Reggae is 10th, with just under 4,000 copies sold so far.
