Ziggy Marley Wins 2017 Best Reggae Album Grammy


Reggae superstar Ziggy Marley has done it again.

The son of Bob Marley has taken home his third Best Reggae Album Grammy in the last five years.

Marley won for his eponymous album “Ziggy Marley” under the Tuff Gong Worldwide label.

He beat out other contenders including Devin Di Dakta & J.L for Sly & Robbie Presents … Reggae for Her; J Boog for Rose Petals; Raging Fyah for Everlasting; Rebelution for Falling into Place; and SOJA for SOJA: Live in Virginia.

Marley has now won five Grammys for Best Reggae Album and two Grammys for Best Reggae Recording (when the award previously had that title).

Marley also won a Grammy in 2009 for his album Family Time, which won in the Best Musical Album for Children category.

“Give thanks to the [Academy] for the honor, my family and all the artists keeping #reggae alive and well. LOVE,” Marley wrote on Twitter.
