Koffee, Jah Cure, Chris Martin among the 120 artists chasing the 2020 Grammys Best Reggae album award

The Best Reggae Album for the 2020 Grammy Awards is being chased by more than 120 solo artists and bands.


More than 120 entries have been submitted for consideration for nomination for the prestigious awards. The top five contenders selected from the pool will be announced next week, Wednesday, November 20th 2019, Jamaican entertainment site Urban Islandz reported.

Among the known entries from Jamaicans vying for the five nomination spaces are Third World’s album, ‘More Work To Be Done’ which was produced by Damian Marley; Koffee’s ‘Rapture’ EP which will make her the third-ever female artist to be nominated for the award, Jah Cure’s ‘Royal Soldier’, former Digicel Rising Star winner Christopher Martin’s ‘And Then’, and Beres Hammond’s’ ‘Never Ending’ album.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will take place on January 26, next year, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Grammy Awards is regarded as the highest honour within the music industry and is the only peer-recognized music award that recognizes recording industry excellence.

In order to be eligible for winning a Grammy, recordings submitted for consideration must have been released between October 1, 2018, and August 31, 2019. After November 20, the final round voting will take place between December 9, 2019, and January 3, 2020, ahead of the awards ceremony.

Academy guidelines state that in order to be considered eligible, recordings must be for sale commercially by way of general distribution or made available as a digital recording, either for sale or via a recognized streaming service.
To be considered an album, recordings must contain at least five tracks and no less than 15 minutes total playing time.

Sting and Shaggy copped the Best Reggae Grammy album earlier this year for their collaborative work, which was titled 44/876, edging out Ziggy Marley’s Rebellion Rises, Protoje’s A Matter of Time, Black Uhuru’s As The World Turns and Etana’s Reggae Forever. For which she became the 2nd female artist to be nominated for the award in 21 years.
