"Sean Paul sets a new record for reggae artistes with first week sales of The Trinity
Following on the heels of Damian Junior Gong Marley’s spectacular debut at number seven on the Billboard 200 album chart three weeks ago with his Welcome to Jamrock album, Sean
Paul’s latest disc The Trinity has also landed in the same position.
The Trinity stormed in at number seven with first week sales of over 107,000 copies, making it the biggest one week sales burst for any Jamaican reggae artiste on the Billboard 200. Welcome to Jamrock held the record three weeks ago, when it sold over 86,000 copies in its first week of release. Sean Paul is the fourth Jamaican reggae act to score a top 10 album on the Billboard 200. In 2001 Shaggy went to number one with Hot Shot, while the late reggae icon Bob Marley, peaked at number eight in 1976 with Rasta man Vibration."
