Christafari’s ‘Reggae Worship’ Debuts at #3 on Billboard Reggae Albums Chart, #10 on Billboard Christian Albums Chart

The latest release from Christafari, Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival, debuted last week to strong sales which earned another Top 10 Billboard chart debut for the Reggae pioneers. The album landed at #3 on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart and #10 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart.

“We are thankful to God for blessing this album and giving us the highest charting position in the 23-year history of Christafari,” says frontman and founder Mark Mohr. “While the band’s focus remains on hearts rather than charts, it is nice to have an album that is so successful that it debuted at number three on the secular reggae chart. It’s an incredible honor to have the very first worship album to ever grace the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart.”

Christafari returned to their roots with the new album, which is now available at all major digital retailers includingiTunesGospelReggae.com and select stores. On Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival (Lion of Zion Entertainment), Christafari reworks classic hymns, reinterprets many of today’s top worship anthems and gives us a handful of original worship songs that truly capture the band’s signature sound.

The band is currently in the midst of a South Pacific tour that is packing venues throughout New Caledonia and Fiji. The band also has upcoming tour dates scheduled across the USA and in the Virgin Islands, Brazil, Belize and Guatemala.

With over a half million albums sold worldwide, Christafari is the all-time top selling Gospel Reggae artist. The band continues to tour worldwide, performing more than 100 shows each year reaching more than 50 countries. For more information, visit www.christafari.com.
