Shenseea’s album, Alpha sold a total of 60,000 sales, & was the international reggae artist’s most streamed work this year.

Album sales and stream counts in the US are among the most trustworthy indicators of an artist’s commercial success. The nation continues to be the world’s largest and most lucrative market for recorded music. According to US sales tracker Luminate Data, Koffee, Shenseea, and Masicka’s first albums were the best-selling works from Jamaican musicians published in 2022.

According to World Music Views, Shenseea’s album, Alpha, which was published on March 11 and sold a total of 60,000 sales, was the international reggae artist’s most streamed work this year. The Rich Immigrants and Interscope Records album debuted at number 12 on the year’s chart. Shenseea’s top-charting song Blessed, which also includes American rapper Tyga, sold 40,000 copies in Canada before receiving a gold certification. Along with other American rappers like Offset and Megan Thee Stallion, the album also includes veteran dancehall artist Beenie Man, Sean Paul, and others.

Further, Koffee’s album Gifted, which was released on March 25 by Promised Land Recordings, sold 223,000 sales in the US. Gifted, which had the hit singles Lockdown, West Indies, and Pull Up, came in at number eight on the chart. The album sold 3,500 sales during the first week of April, reaching its high at number two on the reggae charts, according to World Music Views. Koffee has had a lot of support ever since she entered the music industry, both nationally and internationally. Pull Up, a song by Koffee was also included in former US President Barack Obama’s choice of the year’s best songs.

Masicka’s 16-track debut 438, which is debatably one of the best in recent Dancehall history, features themes about mental health, adversity, and triumph. It is simple to understand why the album lasted seven weeks on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart and amassed 30.4 million on-demand streams in the US alone thanks to songs like Suicide Note, Pain, and King.
