SIX of the 10 positions on this week's Billboard Reggae Albums Chart are former number ones. Five have improved their standing while the other has fallen down the table.

Sting and Shaggy's 44/876, which is up for a Best Reggae Album Grammy, continues to dominate as it returns to number one — the 19th time it has achieved this feat in 33 weeks on the chart.

Beres Hammond's Never Ending moves up two places to number two. This is the album's eighth week on the chart, one of those as number one.

Former chart-topper Everyday Life, Everyday People by Slightly Stoopid is down to number three, in its 25th week. F ree Rein by Rebelution moves up one spot to number four.

After 27 weeks, Iration's self-titled album continues to hold strong, moving up one place to number five, while Damian Marley's Stony Hill clocks its 61st week in the top 10 at number six.

Still Standing by Vanessa Bling drops four places to number seven. This is the EP's sixth week inside the top 10.

There are three re-entries inside the top flight. One Day by Common Kings, which peaked at number two a few months ago, returns at number eight; Captured from Spice is back at number nine, its third week in the Top 10 and Chronology by Chronixx returns at number 10, to clock 45 weeks on the tally.
