Reggae Grammy 2014 Nominees

By on - 1 comment

Two big reggae albums in the Grammy finals.

There is one nature law in reggae – if one of the Marley’s has put out or produced an album it will be nominated for a Grammy that year. That is pre-determined.

The nominees for the 2015 Grammy Awards were presented yesterday. Guess who’s one of the six nominees in the reggae category? Ziggy Marley and his album Fly Rasta. The five other contenders for the award include Lee Perry’s Back on the Controls, Sean Paul’s Full Frequency, Shaggy’s Out of Many One Music, Sly & Robbie & Spicy Chocolate’s The Reggae Power and SOJA’s Amid the Noise and Haste.

Two of these six albums are surely heavyweights and I would not be disappointed if Shaggy or Lee Perry received the award. Their respective albums are well-above the usual dull reggae albums in the Grammy Awards.

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will be held February 8 and notable nominees include Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams and Jay Z.

“This year’s nominees are a reflection of the music community’s diversity and range of talent, and a testament to The Academy’s voting process,” says Neil Portnow, President & CEO of The Recording Academy, in a press release.
