Global Reggae Charts magazine is out and it brings a new special, the Annual Charts. Based on voter data Global Reggae Charts presents the best singles and albums in 2017.
The year 2017 was a rich reggae year, coming with plenty of great music. The year of 2018 is expected to be an awesome one also. GRC is introducing a frequently requested category called Riddim Charts. Riddim Charts was finally made possible by the increase in the voter pool.
“Working on your debut album with such maturity is certainly one of the benefits that come with not rushing things or, as I formerly called it, the Slow Music Approach.”
