Jamaica Music Countdown May 18-24, 2012 by Richie B… Damion “Jnr Gong” Marley again has top Reggae Singles, Drop It (Like U Doin It) – Cham tops dancehall

The countdown by Richie B takes a lull this week. Ziggy and his Wild & Free entry is booted from the top 10 albums, while “Marley” Soundtrack by Bob Marley is placed at 5th position after 9 weeks.Sweet Jamaica – Mr Vegas settles in 4th place, after inching to that spot last week, while Singing Melody’s They Call Me Mr Melody holds at third place a spot she fell to last week. She is magnetising Diversity – Gentleman to second place, making room for Mental Maintenance – Konshens to rise as top album.
Sophia Brown inches in the number 7 with Catch Me If You Can and there is only one newcomers.

Affairs of the Heart – Damion “Jnr Gong” Marley is again (3rd week) the top Reggae Singles in its 11th weekly appearance on the charts. Judgement Day – Raging Fyah is number 2, but Silver Words – Robert Minott feat. Kirk Kbz has stepped down three notches from 2nd to 5th place.

C-Sharpe band’s The Invitation still cannot be found on the charts, but their Book of Rules – C-Sharp ups 2 notches to number 19 on the Reggae Singles.
.
For Dancehall Singles chart, Shaggy’s Summer in Kingston is still missing. In its 26th week, Set Up Shop – Damian “Jnr Gong Marley” drops further to 21st place, although at some point it maintained top Dancehall Singles for two weeks. After a seasoned 21-weeks exposure, Drop It (Like U Doin It) – Cham tops the Dancehall Singles charts.
Bruk It Down by Mr Vegas falls 2 places to 3rd place in 12 weeks, and Gal A Bubble – Konshens is second in this its 13th week on this Dancehall Singles segment.
