RUD3 LOV3, the debut album from dancehall rapper Tafari, debuts at number 17 on Billboard's Reggae Album chart. The set was released March 18 by Tafari's Rud3 Music and is distributed by VP Records. It features productions from Rud3 Music, Noah Mason as well as Grammy-winning producers Jermaine Reid and Jason Gilbert, Kamron Houff and Dennis Blaze.

Reid has production credits for Buju Banton's Grammy-winning album Before the Dawn, while Gilbert picked up a Grammy in 2011 for his work on Eminem's album, Recovery.

"The album was a collective effort of creative people. It is a strong body of work consisting of infectious vibration with a variety of producers," Tafari explained. Rud3 Lov3's 11 tracks includes collaborations with Tafari's father, veteran deejay Big Youth, his brother Isat, Ce'Cile and R&B singer/producer Jimmy Cozier. Former Brick and Lace member Nyla is featured on the single I Want You.
