A remake of the classic Queen Majesty song by American reggae band Common Kings debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard Reggae Digital Song Sales chart. The song also features Sammy Johnson and The Green.

Common Kings have charted five titles on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. Summer Anthem reached No. 4, while #weontour Soundtrack hit No. 7. The EP Hits and Mrs. stalled at No. 2, so too One DayLost in Paradise is their sole chart-topper. It earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album in 2017.

Toast by Koffee leads the Reggae Digital Song Sales chart for a 13th non-consecutive week. It has been inside the chart for 50 weeks.  

Last week’s chart-topper, Trust by Buju Banton, falls to No. 7.
