DANCEHALL artiste Xyclone is the big news on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart this week. His 11-track set, The Sounds of South America, debuts at number nine with first-week sales of 1,064 copies.

The Sounds of South America was released on October 15 via Congress Society. Among the collaborators are Cestar Shamanes, Bittah Sosicka, Soy Malaia, Balaguero, and Asher Robinson.

This is Xyclone's fifth entry on the Billboard chart. From the Basement to the Big Leagues hit number one in 2017 whilel, a few months later, 2774 Waterford Parkway stalled at number four. The Year of the Wolf rose to three in 2019 while Sounds of Africa rode to seven that same year.

Congress Society, released in 2020, managed to peak at number five on the US Current Reggae Albums chart with first-week sales of 371 copies.

Back on this week's Billboard Reggae table, red-hot deejay Skillibeng's first full-length studio effort, Crocodile Teeth (LP) debuts at 15 with pure album sales of 123. Song sales were 97, audio streaming 660,949, while video-streaming totalled 35,475.

Bob Marley and the Wailers has spent 94 weeks at number one with Legend while Best of Shaggy: The Boombastic Collection is steady at number two.
