Dancehall artist Teejay continues to assert his presence on the international music stage, this time by debuting on the Billboard Rhythmic Airplay Top 40. His summer anthem “Drift” has captured the attention of listeners, landing at number 36 and marking another accolade in his growing list of achievements.
The track previously garnered attention on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, reaching number 47 — a testament to Teejay’s capacity to create hits that resonate across different audiences.
While Teejay celebrates his success, Byron Messia’s “Talibans” experiences a slight descent on the Rhythmic Top 40, dropping to number 37 after peaking at 18. The track also sees movement on other charts, including a slight drop on the Rap Airplay chart. This reflects the natural ebb and flow of the charts, highlighting both the competitive nature of the music industry and the staying power of dancehall tracks that manage to hold a spot for multiple weeks.
The Billboard Reggae Albums chart highlights the genre’s classics and current favorites, with Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Legend” achieving an astounding 199 non-consecutive weeks at number one. Shaggy, Sean Paul, UB40, and Damian Marley also continue to hold their ground, underscoring reggae’s enduring appeal.
Teejay’s latest chart appearance with “Drift” is a clear indication of his consistent ability to deliver music that not only tops charts but also excites the global audience. With the backing of Warner Music’s promotional engine, Teejay’s tracks are not just hits but anthems that signal the enduring vitality and evolution of dancehall music
