The “Strong One” stopped by Fox 11 in Los Angeles on Friday to speak about her historic nomination in the Best Reggae Album category.
“Win it and come home sis,” Spice wrote under a photo of Etana.
Etana is the first female Reggae artiste to sit on top of the Billboard chart twice and acquire a Grammy nomination for her album. This is the first time a woman is nominated in the 21st century in the reggae genre; fatefully the album was released on international women’s day.
This honor comes after more than two decades for a Jamaican female to be nominated for a Grammy award in the category, Best Reggae Album. Etana, this era’s queen of reggae, joins veteran acts, Judy Mowatt (1986), Rita Marley (1992) and Sister Carol (1997) to have their albums recognized on the most prestigious stage in music.
