Despite being at the top of the chart, Full Frequency, which was released on February 18, only sold 2,160 in its first week of release.

This highlight a major problem not only plaguing reggae music, but also other genres in the mainstream music market, album sales are at a all time low.

This is also one of Sean Paul’s lowest selling album. In contrast his 2002 Dutty Rock sold 65,000 copies in its opening week but went on to sell over six million copies worldwide.

The dancehall star’s 2005 release The Trinity sold 107,000 copies in its first week, but went on to move over 4 million copies worldwide. Sean Paul created history with the best opening week sales by a Jamaican musician.
