Easy Star's Thrillah Debuts at #1 on Billboard Reggae Chart

Easy Star’s Thrillah by the Easy Star All-Stars has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Reggae and iTunes Reggae chartsEasy Star’s Thrillah (released August 28 on Easy Star Records) is the Easy Star All-Stars’ reggae adaptation of the greatest selling record of all time – Michael Jackson’s Thriller.  The album debuted impressively on other Billboard charts including #11 on the Heatseekers Chart, #69 on the Indie Store Chart, and #121 on the Top 200 Digital albums, amongst others.  The album follows in the footsteps of the ESA line of groundbreaking reggae tribute albums including Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006) and Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009).
