In the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category, the other nominees are Buju Banton (Upside Down), Maxi Priest (It All Comes Back To Love), Toots & The Maytals (Got To Be Tough) and The Wailers (One World).

Skip Marley will know his fate when the Grammy Awards is aired on January 31.  

But this is just more good news for the young entertainer who got two nominations for the 2020 Soul Train Music Awards that will be aired on Sunday. Slow Down was nominated in ‘Video of the Year’ and ‘Best Collaboration’.

It is no surprise that the song has been nominated numerous times, as it topped Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs airplay chart in May. The track also spent time on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs, the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop and the Rhythmic Songs charts.
