Also among the top 30 are Beres Hammond, Jah Cure, Queen Ifrica, Busy Signal and Tarrus Riley. The list however, is dominated by overseas reggae acts such as Sylvanus, Kalli Blaxx, Fire Star, Dub Matix feat. Kulcha Ites and others.

Romain says, “It was surprising to know how far up north my music is being accepted; somewhere like Alaska that many of us don’t even think about. It’s a great feeling though. Fi real, it is.”

Also hitting the international charts is his single, Dark Skin Girl, which sits at the number 8 spot on the Mediaguide Reggae Chart after jumping from the number 31 position last week.
