Reggae/Dancehall superstar, Gyptian has topped the U.S. Billboard Reggae Chart thanks to his new album,Sex, Love and Reggae, breaking a Jamaican drought on the charts in the process.

According to reports, Sex, Love and Reggae topped the chart with 1,290 copies sold in its opening week, becoming the first album by a Jamaican artist to top the chart since Beres Hammond’s One Life, One Love last October. The album more than doubles the output garnered for his last studio album, Hold Yuh, which sold just a touch over 500 copies and peaked in second spot on the Billboard Reggae Chart in 2010.

Gyptian has been doing a promotional tour for the album over the last month in the U.S. and U.K. respectively, performing mainly club venues throughout the tour.

Sex, Love and Reggae features several international names, including Melanie Fiona on One More Time,Estelle (Majestic Love) and Bunji Garlin, amongst several others.

His last album featured the award-winning, chart-topping single, Hold Yuh, which was certified gold in the United States with over 500,000 copies and silver in the United Kingdom, with over 200,000 units sold.
