Alkaline Collects “Top Prize” Billboard Plaque

Alkaline collects a new Billboard plaque for his latest album, Top Prize.

The Vendetta deejay’s trophy shelf may need extending soon, as he receives another plaque from Billboard. What makes things even more exciting is that this is the second one the dancehall deejay is picking up in as little as four months.

The latest marks the achievement of his 2021 album Top Prize, which held the No. 2 album on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. The project seemed destined for greatness even before its release date, as fans clamored through those imaginative online shopping gates to preorder. The album’s release came on May 14 and would secure its number 2 spot in the weeks following, as fans streamed and purchased the music in the US.

In April, the deejay received the long-awaited Billboard plaque for his debut studio album, “New Level Unlocked.” The project is still revered for its composition and diversity, which led to it taking a seat at the number 1 position on Billboard’s Reggae chart in 2016.

In April, Alkaline’s sister and manager Kerry took to Instagram to showcase the 2016 plaque.

“to the fans I appreciate y’all… let’s prepare ourselves for another 1,” she wrote in the caption.

The proud sister’s prediction came less than a month later.

“Top Prize,” which was produced by Autobamb Records, entered the Billboard Current Album Sales chart at Number 56. The 14-track album followed Bob Marley’s Legend: The Best Of Bob Marley and The Wailers, which continued to reign at Number 1, and in the close Number 3 spot was Shaggy’s Best of Shaggy: The Boombastic Collection.

Before the release of Top Prize, Alkaline, born Earlan Bartley, said of the album, “This album is timely as with my experiences, the lessons learned and growth over time, it is only fair that I bring everything full circle.”

The Vendetta boss emerged on the scene at the age of 16 in 2010 as a rising dancehall act. His popularity grew through early hits such as “Bruk Out,” “123,” “High Suh,” and “Things Mi Love.” The deejay was also popular for portraying the image of “the first dancehall artist to tattoo his eyeball.” Some years later, he admitted that he was wearing contact lenses the entire time.

A knack for gimmicks is no longer in the playbook for Alka, who was recently shown locked in the studio with recently freed rapper Bobby Shmurda.

Usain Bolt Offers Sha’Carri Richardson Some Tough Advice Following Multiple Meet Losses

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is offering some words of wisdom to rising track star Sha’Carri Richardson following the young athlete’s fall from grace.

During a recent interview with the New York Post, the eight-time Olympic gold medalist was asked about the 21-year-old whose stellar performance in the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials at the new Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, last June was quickly overshadowed by a series of incidents, including a failed drug test, which subsequently got her disqualified from the Tokyo games entirely.  

Bolt told the media outlet that the best thing the Texas native can do now is stop talking and focus on what really matters. “I would tell Sha’Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much…,” he explained. A much speculated lack of media experience ultimately led to a dim in her once fiery fan support. Many have expressed belief that the young star’s trash talk proved damaging to her brand. 

“If you talk that big talk you have to back it up,” Bolt continued. The Jamaican-born sprinting phenom added, “So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back, do it and then talk about it.”

On Aug. 21, Richardson finished in last place in the women’s 100 meters as Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah dominated the race. Shortly afterward, an online feud seemingly unraveled between Richardson and Team Jamaican.

Bolt told the outlet he and his fellow Jamaican athletes were not impressed by Richardson’s attitude, considering a rivalry between American and Jamaican sprinters that picked up some steam dating back to at least 2012. 

“Jamaicans were vexed because she was talking a lot of s–t before the actual race, it is just one of those things,” he explained. “Jamaicans don’t like when people talk s–t about us because we are a very proud people. So if you talk about us we are gonna want you to back it up. It definitely gave those women the extra push [to win.]” 

Richardson has had a few incidents with members of the Caribbean nation. She was offered an all-expenses-paid trip to Jamaica by a Jamaican hotel owner, following her loss to Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who finished second in the Prefontaine race. Many people online found the gesture to be disingenuous.
