Chart Talk

(Italy's Alborosie-with shades on-adds international flavor to this month's reggae charts, while Chezidek-on mic-continues to roll)

Reggae music continues to move from strength to strength in all quarters. Chezidek is in the charts and will be performing at this year's Sierra Nevada World Music Fest, which is fast becoming the best summer show on the West Coast. Collie Buddz follows up "Come Around" with a lovers-dancehall jam for Konders' Massive B label. And what can you say about Mr. Vegas? He's battering the charts and clubs with a slew of singles.
