Koffee’s “Rapture” Nominated for ‘Best Reggae Album’ at 2020 Grammy’s
Reggae sensation, Koffee is undeniably the most popular artist in Jamaica. 2019 has been huge for her since releasing her “Rapture” EP in March of this year.
The success of the single “Toast” has helped her garner attention worldwide, dominating the Billboard Reggae Charts, and winning favor with President Obama when he included the song on his 2019 Summer Playlist. Most recently, during Prime Minister Andrew Holness’ visit to China, the song was performed by the Chinese Military Band.
19-year-old Koffee has brought a younger generation of fans to Reggae music with her infectious positive energy and gratitude-fueled sound.
Her “Rapture” EP was recently nominated for “Best Reggae Album” for the 2020 Grammy Awards and can only be attributed to the success of her music thus far.
The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will take place on January 26, 2020, in Los Angeles.
This nomination puts her in great company with other reggae greats like Steel Pulse, Julian Marley, Third World, and Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics.
In the past the Grammy for best reggae album has consistently gone to reggae stalwarts like Shaggy, Damian Marley, and Sly & Robbie. Maybe next year will be different.
