.@TootsMaytals, @BujuBanton, @SkipMarley & More Nominated For 2021 Reggae GRAMMYs


Earlier, the Recording Academy announced their many nominations for the 2021 GRAMMYs. From Pop to Bluegrass to Hip Hop, the world got a chance to see if their faves would be called up to possibly snag the golden award come January 2021. The “Best Reggae Album” category saw an interesting lineup this time around, and while there was celebration, there was some disappointed. The “Best Reggae Album” nominations are:

While many were hoping for acts like Protoje, Lila Ike, and Popcaan getting called up this year with their respective projects, Chronixx scored a nom for his appearance of Free Nationals’ 2019 self-titled album, Producer Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor and Koffee grab another one for their contributions on John Legend’sBigger Love” album, Noah Powa, Shaggy, Inner Circle, and Bounty Killa score noms for their appearance on Maxi Priest’s album while Skip Marley adds two more nominations for his H.E.R. featured single “Slow Down“, and his appearance on The Wailers’ “One World” album. We wish them all the best on January 31, 2021. Will you be watching The GRAMMYs?

.@BujuBanton & @JohnLegend Reunite And Reflect On “Memories”


Since his release from prison in 2018, Jamaican Icon Buju Banton has been on a run. With performances and new music all 2019 and early 2020, Buju has been back like he never left. Today, he reunites with another musical icon, John Legend on “Memories“. It’s been 12 years since their collab, “Can’t Be My Lover“, and now their pairing is just as good as they reflect on past lovers who they still very much have feelings for. With Buju, Lenky Marsden, and Donovan Germain handling production, it’s a song that’s very relatable, and a showcase of two friends creating some great music.

“Memories” is featured on Buju’s upcoming album, “Upside Down“, which will see a release later this year through Gargamel Music/Roc Nation. Good to hear new Buju, and a reunion with John Legend.
