SINGER OMI MAKES REGGAE HISTORY ON THE BRITISH POP CHART!

SINGER Omi made reggae history last weekend when his song Cheerleader topped the United Kingdom pop chart for a fourth straight week.

This is the longest reign at number one in the UK by a Jamaican artist. Cheerleader was recently certified platinum for sales of over 600,000 copies in that country.

So far, the song has sold more than 1.9 million copies worldwide. It is currently making moves on Billboard Magazine’s main charts.

It is number 31 in its third week on the Billboard Hot 100; number 29 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay; number 31 on the Mainstream Top 40; and number 28 on the Rhythmic chart.

Cheerleader has also topped charts in 12 countries, including Australia, Germany, Sweden and Denmark.

The song has sold over 600,000 copies in Germany. Twenty-eight year-old Omi, who is from Clarendon, was presented with a plaque commemorating that milestone on Saturday shortly after his performance at a football match, at the Allianz Arena in Munich, between champions Bayern Munich and Mainz.
