Ghanaian Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has joined the elite group of musicians who have made it onto the Billboard charts.
The Billboard charts tabulate the relative weekly popularity of singles or albums in the United States and elsewhere.
An album on which the ‘Run Go’ act is featured is number two on the Billboard Reggae chart. He is featured on the song A.B.C which is off Jereme Morgan’s Transition album released in January 2017.
Jereme is the song of Gramps Morgan (of Legendary Reggae group Morgan Heritage) and a Grammy winning artiste.
The 17-track album Transition was released on January 6, 2017. It features Stonebwoy, Gramps Morgan, Jo Mersa Marley, Agent Sasco. Toian and J Boog. It was released by Dada Son Entertainment and produced by Jereme and his father.
“I consider everyone featured on my album family. My uncle Peetah also helped with the co-writing process on my album,” says Jereme of the album.
“This album represents the current phase in my life, transitioning into becoming a man. I’ve been working on this album for the past three years, handpicking each sound down to the melodies of each record. Music and the artist should be one, and if the beat doesn’t connect to me, I’m on to the next track. So, that’s how I picked the tracks for the album.“
