(Jamaica Observer) It’s a case of the veterans vs the young in the Best Reggae Album category of the 63rd Grammy Awards. The nominations were announced yesterday via www.grammy.com.
The nominees are Upside Down 2020 by Buju Banton, One World by The Wailers, It All Comes Back to Love by Maxi Priest, Got to Be Tough by Toots and the Maytals, and Higher Place by Skip Marley.
Skip Marley has had a good year. Aside from earning two Soul Train Music Award nominations recently, he topped the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart in May with Slow Down featuring HER. His current single Make Me Feel featuring Rick Ross and Ari Lennox has hit the chart’s Top 20.
Marley’s Higher Place went to number two on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. Island Records released it in August. It has songs with his uncle Damian Marley and grandfather Bob.
