After a mind-blowing performance at this year's Rebel Salute concert, Etana is now gearing up for a European tour based on the strength of her Billboard chart-topping album, I Rise.

Released in 2014, the album marked the first time in 17 years that a Jamaican female reggae artiste has topped Billboard's Reggae album chart.

"It was a great showing, it topped the album charts for four weeks, and then when I went on a US tour, it jumped once again and topped the chart for three weeks, so it shows that my brand is very strong in the reggae world," Etana said.

The Clive Hunt-produced album is Etana's fourth entry on the album chart. The last time a Jamaican female reggae artiste topped the chart was 1997 with Diana King's Think like a Girl.

Etana kicked off her tour on January 29th in a sold-out performance in Belgium and the tour will go through several countries before climaxing on February 22nd in Stuttgart, Germany. The tour also features veteran artiste Mykal Rose.
