“Anyone you know that’s a Member of the Grammy board remind them to Vote for 10 #SpiceAlbum10 ✊🏿💙💙💙”, Spice, whose real name is Grace Hamilton, told her followers in an Instagram post today.

Only four females have ever been nominated in the 36 years since the first Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album (or Best Reggae Recording as it was once called) was presented.

If Spice earns a nomination when they are announced on November 23, she will join Koffee, who was the first and only female to win in the category with her Rapture EP (2020); Rita Marley who was nominated for We Must Carry On in 1992; Sister Carol for Lyrically Potent in 1997; and Etana for Reggae Forever in 2019.

She credits the project’s executive producer, Shaggy, for bringing her and the label together to resolve their longstanding issues.

Although sales and certifications aren’t considered by Grammy voters, 10 opened at No. 6 on the sales and streaming-driven Billboard Reggae Albums chart with the equivalent of 1,447 total units. The 15 track album included songs such as Go Down Deh, a collaboration with Shaggy and Sean Paul, Send It Up and Frenz.
