The late Frederick “Toots” Hibbert landed his fifth Grammy nomination in the reggae category.

The announcement was made on Tuesday via a live-stream on the Grammy’s official website.

Internationally renowned reggae artistes Buju Banton and Maxi Priest were also nominated in the best reggae album category. Banton landed his spot for his album, Upside Down 2020 while Maxi Priest earned his place in the final five for his It All Comes Back To Love compilation.

This is Banton’s sixth nomination and Maxi Priest’s third.

Banton tasted victory back in 2011 when he won the category for his album, Before the Dawn. Maxi Priest has never won a Grammy Award.

The other albums nominated are Skip Marley for his debut EP, Higher Place and The Wailers for their album, One World.

More than 100 entries were submitted for consideration this year.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, January 31, 2021.
