Buju’s Rasta Got Soul made its debut at number two on Billboard Magazine’s top Reggae Albums Chart and number 38 on Top Heatseekers Chart. The album is currently the number eight selling Reggae record on iTunes in North America.
Rasta Got Soul was released on April 21 in the United States and Canada.
Buju Banton is set to perform at the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden on Mother’s Day. Billed as the third annual Mother’s Day Extravaganza, this year’s event will be in honour of Buju’s own mother, the late Murdine ‘Miss Dotty’ Clarke, who passed away in early April. Banton and his Shiloh Band are planning a very special set for the occasion, that will include the live debut of several tracks from Rasta Got Soul.
