Which Jamaican artist won the Grammy?

RESPONSE: by Wellesley

The latest Jamaican grammy award winner is Koffee for her album, Rapture (2019). The other nominees in the Best Reggae Category category were:

  • Julian Marley's As I Am
  • Sly & Robbie & the Roots Radics' The Final Battle: Sly & Robbie vs. Roots Radics
  • Steel Pulse's Mass Manipulation &
  • Third World's More Work to Be Done

You can read more about Koffee's award here.
But while I have you, should I guess that you might also be interested in who are the Grammy's Best Reggae Album winners, since it's inception in 1985?

The year won is listed first, followed by the name of the Jamaican/Reggae Artiste and then the winning album.
