Singer Fyah Harp debuts at number four on this week's Billboard Reggae Albums chart with Can't Quench, a 13-song set released last October by Judah Empire Records. It is produced by John “Jon FX” Crawford.

Can't Quench, which sold 119 copies, contains songs such as Bondage, My African Woman, Gideon Day and Presence of Yah.

Fyah Harp, whose real name is David Somers, is from Montego Bay. He lives in Oregon.

Koffee's EP, Rapture, is number one for a third week. This is the longest-running number one by a Jamaican solo artiste since Damian Marley's Stony Hill spent a similar time there in January 2018.

Rapture sold an additional 176 copies last week to bring its four-week tally to 1,042 copies.

Holding firm at number two is Black and White by The Green, which sold 129 copies last week for a total of 1,504.

Moving up one spot to number three is 44/876 by Sting and Shaggy with sales of 53,269 copies, while Everyday Life, Everyday People by Slightly Stoopid remains number five for a second week.

Defy Gravity by The Elovaters, a former number one, returns to the top 10 at number six with 62 copies sold. Poetry in Motion by SOJA is down to number seven, while Free Rein by Rebelution slips to number eight.

The self-titled set by Iration also revisits the top 10 at number nine, while the various artistes compilation, Get Soca, moves up two spots to number 10.
