Massive congratulations are in order for young reggae sensation Koffee, whose debut EP Rapture was nominated for a Grammy award.

Its been a monumental year for young reggae sensation Koffee who got her first Grammy nomination. Just a year ago, Koffee was not yet a household name, but she was well on her way to taking over the reggae genre on a scale we haven’t seen in many years. Upon the release of her first single off her Rapture EP, “Toast,” a new star was born, and the rest of the world recognized it quickly. The reggae/dancehall star’s debut single is arguably one of the longest-running hits in a year in the dancehall space for a very long time. As we know, the genre frequently refreshes with a new sound, and what was hot last month isn’t necessarily even warm anymore today. However, “Toast” was fire all year round.

The nominees for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards was announced, and Koffee’s debut EP Rapture was nominated among four other bodies of work for “Best Reggae Album.” This makes the 19-year-old singer the youngest ever to be nominated in this category.

Other nominees up for the title of best reggae album this year are Julian Marley with “As I Am,” Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics with “The Final Battle” and “More Work To Be Done” by Third World which was produced by Damian Marley.
