Billboard names JOSS STONE reggae artist of the year

English singer JOSS STONE’s seventh album Water For Your Soul was the best-selling modern reggae record of 2015, according to Billboard magazine.

The record, which incorporates elements of reggae and hip-hop, has sold 29,000 copies and spent eight weeks at the top of Billboard’s weekly reggae albums chart.

It also features collaborations with DAMIAN MARLEY and DENNIS BOVELL along with sample credits by BARRINGTON LEVY, COCOA TEA and INNER CIRCLE.

BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS' classic Legend album sold 191,000 copies in the last 12 months but was not eligible for reggae artist of the year.

JOSS STONE released Water For Your Soul in July this year on her own label Stone'd Records.
