KINGSTON, Jamaica — English rocker Sting and Shaggy reclaimed the number one spot on the Billboard Reggae Album chart this week. Their collaborative effort '44/876' removed last week's chart topper Santigold's 'I Dont Want: the Gold Fire Sessions', from her one-week reign.

Santigold falls to number four. She is the second female artiste to reach the top of the Billboard Reggae album chart since this year. In March Etana, spent one week in pole position.

'Everyday Life, Everyday People' by California band Slightly Stoopid has received a new lease on life, moving from four to number two.

Rebelution's 'Free Rein' which continues to sell moderately, inches up two spots to number three, and Iration's self titled set also gains three spots moving up to number five.

Popcaan's sophomore set 'Forever' remains in the number six spot after peaking at number two, three weeks ago.

The 25th anniversary edition of VP Records' long running Reggae Gold compilation series falls from three to number seven, while Damian Marley's 'Stony Hill' re-enters the top 10, rising from 14 to eight.

Also gaining some ground is 'Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United', which rises from 12 to nine. The set peaked at number six a few weeks ago.

Completing the top ten is Ziggy Marley's Rebellion Rises which falls from number nine.
