THERE is not much change to the top 10 of the Billboard Reggae Album Chart this week, with Sting and Shaggy and Beres Hammond still occupying the top two spots.

Sting and Shaggy's Grammy-nominated 44/876 retains the number one spot ahead of Hammond's Never Ending. 44/876 has sold over 50,000 copies, while Never Ending has registered just over 3,500 in sales.

Reaching 26 weeks on the chart is Free Rein by California band Rebelution. It inches up to number three, while falling one notch to number four is Slightly Stoopid's Everyday Life, Everyday People, which has been on the chart for 21 weeks.

Iration sits at number five for another week with its self-titled set, having charted for 28 weeks with a peak position of number two.

The lone female in the Top 10 is Vanessa Bling. Her EP Still Standing, which peaked at number three, moves up one spot to number six. It is the deejay's seventh week inside the top 10.

Damian Marley's long-running Stony Hill falls to number seven in its 62nd week, while Forever by Popcaan re-enters the chart at number eight.

Revisiting the Top 10 is Reggae Gold 2018: 25th Anniversary, which is at number nine. It has gone as high as number three.

Another Grammy-nominated set, Ziggy Marley's Rebellion Rises, also re-enters the table at number 10.
