Artistes and producers are celebrating the latest accomplishments of the Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica album, which continues to find place on Reggae and Dancehall charts since its launch in June this year.
The album has been successful in Ghana where it went to #1 in all genres, and it also hit the top 10 Itunes reggae album charts in 14 countries. The producers have heavily marketed the album in Africa, as a new market for reggae and dancehall and have struck gold as the streaming numbers rise.
In the United States market, it hit #16 on the Billboard compilation album charts during the week of August 22, 2020 and has remained among the top streamed albums in this category. Whenever an album hits Billboard it automatically qualifies for a Billboard plaque which can be given to the artists and producers on the album.
Hip Hop artists Royce da 59, Jethro Sheeran, King Tiger, and Alistarr also appear on the album.
The Executive Producer of the album, Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards says plans are in place to create a docufilm about the making of the album. This would be a first of its kind that features not only seasoned artistes but many new faces and voices entering dancehall.
