Masicka and Jahshii top the chart in Cayman Islands

Pieces, a hit song by deejay Masicka and which features Jahshii, is the new number one song on Hot 104.1 FM's chart in the Cayman Islands.

The song is the first release from Masicka's recently inked album deal with Def Jam Records.

In a previous interview with the Jamaica Observer, Masicka said, "Pieces is a song of triumph. It's a celebration of what you have worked hard for and motivates the listeners to keep going. You will be victorious," said Masicka.

He added: "The song touches on overcoming challenges and obstacles you face along the way, as we navigate through this thing called life. The challenges you're faced with make you stronger. They mould you into a warrior. The warrior which is needed to be successful."

Bob Marley and the Wailers' Exodus was released in 1977.

Since its release two weeks ago, the official video for Pieces has garnered more than 2 million views on YouTube. It has ranked number one on the YouTube Trending chart for the past week.

Moving over to the Billboard Reggae Albums chart, Bob Marley and the Wailers clock 164 non-consecutive weeks in the number one spot with Legend.

Best of Shaggy: The Boombastic Collection by Shaggy is steady at number two, while Dutty Classics Collection by Sean Paul is number three.

Re-entering the chart at number four, a position that it held in 2017, is the 1977 release by Bob Marley and the Wailers, titled Exodus. The landmark album, which was recorded at the Harry J Recording Studio in Kingston, contains the hits Turn Your Lights Down Low, Waiting in Vain, Three Little Birds, One Love, and Jamming. The title track also topped charts in Jamaica.

Exodus has to date been certified gold in Canada, France, Italy, Germany, and the United States. Over in the United Kingdom, it has been certified platinum.

In 1999, Exodus was named the best album of the 20th century by Time magazine. Two years later, VH1 ranked Exodus as the 26th greatest album of all time. Two years ago, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the album at number 71 on its list of 500 Greatest Albums of all time.
