Vybz Kartel’s new album “King Of The Dancehall” failed to make it to the top ten of the Billboard Reggae Album chart, while his arch rival Alkaline climbed two further places from No. 9 to 7.

The Linton ‘TJ’ White-produced project has been getting a lot of rave reviews since releasing on June 10th. The official first week sales and album stream is not yet available, but the project did peak at No. 1 on iTunes Reggae chart on the day of its release.

Alkaline’s latest project “New Level Unlocked” was released on March 25th and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart. Since then it has maintained a strong presence in the top 10.

This is Vybz Kartel’s second full length album since his incarceration. Last year he released “Viking (Vybz Is King)” which also saw success on the iTunes chart.
