Snoop Dogg was the most well-known candidate in this year’s Grammy Award category for Best Reggae Album with ‘Reincarnated’ — his first reggae album. The nomination was a surprise to some, but Ziggy Marley won the category with his LP, ‘Ziggy Marley in Concert.’

This is Marley’s fifth win in the category. His last came in 2007 with ‘Love Is My Religion.’ This is his first Best Reggae Album win for a live album after releasing ‘Love Is My Religion Live’ and ‘Ziggy Live From SoHo’ in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

Other nominees include famed reggae artist Beres Hammond, Sizzla and Sly & Robbie and the Jam Masters. Marley was nominated for Best Reggae Album in 2012, for ‘Wild and Free.’ He lost to his brother Stephen, who holds the record for most wins in the category with six (including three with Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers).

Marley arrived to this year’s ceremony with his wife Orly Agai by his side, pictured above.
