Despite his claims otherwise, Vybz Kartel’s King of the Dancehall album is the top-selling dancehall title for 2016. Based on figures obtained from sales tracker Nielsen Music, the album has sold 3,800 in the United States since its release on June 10, 2016. 


Produced by Linton “TJ” White (TJ Records), the 22-track album debuted at number two on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart in June, with first week figures of 1,867 copies. It is the sixth title from the incarcerated deejay to hit this chart.
