A few days ago the African king of dancehall, Shatta Wale hit the top 10 USA reggae iTunes chart for the 1st time. This entry is for the single Dream from Contractor’s Billboard charted compilation album Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica, The Reggae Collector’s Edition.

Shatta Wale is out of Ghana and had tremendous success last year with his mega-hit with Beyonce from her Lion King album. His appearance on the top 10 USA reggae itunes chart with the song Dream can be attributed to the news of a remix to the song with Ed and Jethro Sheeran.


The Dream remix is now available on Contractor’s new compilation album The Reggae Vaccine. The album is set for official release on June 4th and is now available on pre-order. The album is led by Julian Marley
