“Country Yutes”, the debut album by Olympian-turned-producer Usain Bolt, done in conjunction with his long-time friend Nugent ‘NJ’ Walker, took over the number one spot on the USA iTunes Reggae Albums chart on Sunday.
The 14-track set, removed Bob Marley and The Wailers’ “Legend” from the pole position. Bolt said he was elated about the early success of the project, released last Friday.
“Any association with the legendary Bob Marley is a significant blessing to us. It’s a truly humbling feeling for us,” Bolt told the “Jamaica Observer”.
“Country Yutes” was released on the A-Team Lifestyle Records/United Masters label. It features collaborations such as Say Less (with Ricardo ‘Bibi’ Gardner and Kamal), Need Your Love (with Jae XO), and the chart-topping It’s a Party (featuring NJ).
