Reggae sales slump in 2010

Reggae albums released in 2010 undersold 2009 albums and experts want better marketing to resurrect the industry.

The sales were so bad that only three albums released in 2010 made the top 10 selling reggae albums list, according to Billboard data on the US market. The rest of the top 10 was led by albums released in 2009. Albums rarely chart beyond a year which meant that 2010 albums couldn’t even outsell the residual sales from 2009 albums, which were hurt by the global recession.
