Ziggy Marley's Fly Rasta won the Best Reggae Album Grammy in February.
The 10-track set saw the singer-songwriter fusing reggae with rock, soul, funk and punk.
"I took the arrangement seriously and had to educate myself as I wanted emotions in the music. It is not linear, it has hills and valleys... a melodic arc," he told the Jamaica Observer.
Marley's rivals for the Grammy Award were Lee Scratch Perry's Back on The Controls, Sean Paul's Full Frequency, Shaggy's Out of Many, One Music, The Reggae Power by Sly & Robbie and Spicy Chocolate, and Amid the Noise and The Haste by SOJA.
