Romain Virgo scores his second entry on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart with his EP, Lifted, which debuts at number seven.

His previous entry, 2012's The System, entered and peaked at number six.

Lifted features the tracks Fade Away (featuring Assassin), God Inna Me Corner, Badder Man, Star Across the Sky, Work and covers of Sam Smith's Stay with Me and Michael Bolton's Soul Provider.

"It's a joy and a blessing to know that people are interested in my work. Sometimes we put out projects and we don't get the recognition," was Virgo's reaction to Lifted's Billboard debut.
