18 weeks after the release of “The Cure”, singer Jah Cure has been nominated for his first Grammy.
The nominations were announced this morning on the Grammy’s official website.
Vying for the best reggae album along with Jah Cure are Morgan Heritage for “Strictly Roots”, Barrington Levy with “Acousticalevy”, Luciano for “Zion Awake” and Rocky Dawuni for “Branches Of The Same Tree”.
Noticeably absent from the reggae category for the 2016 Grammys are the Marleys who are renowned to dominate the reggae section of the Grammys.
