Meet the first candidate for GRAMMY Award: Protoje in an evolving reggae
The Jamaican singer and his creative force are responding to his first nomination, the importance of about tradition by accepting change and how the reggae crowns put him in touch with musicians such as Bob Marley and Black Uhuru.

Protoje seems urgent in A Matter of Time; that’s good since the fourth album of the Jamaican star captures an artist who carves a new space in the most persuasive tools of the genre: energy and exaltation. The album honors the deeply rooted traditions of the genre, but bursts into a bold and luminous territory, infusing hip-hop rhythms, orchestral jazz scores and dancehall rhythms into transcendent holiday rhythms.
The close relationship of Protoje with the music of his country comes partly from the family, like the son of King Calypso Mike Ollivierre and the Jamaican singer Lorna Bennett. However, the way music has taken Jamaica to the rest of the world is just as important: Protoje spent 2018 on the roads sharing reggae with crowds such as Reading & Leeds and the opening of Lauryn Hill in the United States.
But he is not an artist who is content to rest on his laurels, nor those of reggae as a genre. “I can evolve and I’m free to do it,” he says, discreet and resolute. From the traditions of fashion to music, the 37-year-old artist finds comfort and strength to overcome limits.
Protoje spoke at the Recording Academy about his first GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album, his hope for a conversation with Jay-Z and his pride in helping make reggae a more important part of the global conversation.
What a way to start the year! This is your fourth album and your first GRAMMY nomination for the best Reggae album. Have you seen the rewards as a goal when you started your career?
Let me tell you that I thought that my third album, Ancient Future, would nominate because it was revolutionary when it came out in terms of modern reggae music. Winning a GRAMMY was definitely a goal in my first days. It’s in your mind, you know, maybe one day I’ll get this GRAMMY award, I’ll be nominated. So I guess I thought about it but I was not obsessed with that. So many things have happened since the ancient future. It was very influential. When it came out, we had the best reggae song of this decade. When I was not nominated, I walked away from GRAMMY. I did not expect to be nominated for the room because I thought the third was a certainty. This is how it happens sometimes. It works like this. I pleased to hear that this question nominated. Things happen and when is your moment. You do not have to worry about anything. Take your time and see what happens.
This is an amazing way to see things, and it’s particularly appropriate considering the album called A Matter of Time. What was this instant feeling when you heard about the date? How did you react to?
My mother called me and told me. We work a lot together in my career and we progress. I felt that my team, everyone excited and everyone worked very hard for me. It is good that they feel good and feel proud of it. I only know that I really appreciate my family and the way they supported me. Not all families are in favor, you know; Not all parents support me and I am grateful for the ones I have, and I am happy to make them feel proud. In the Jamaican music scene, there are many people who support each other. Everyone tries to support and help each other. I really like your address.
Beyond the feeling of the nomination, what do you think about your participation in the GRAMMY Awards? Do you have an idea of what you will feel when the prizes begin to be delivered?
For me, it’s great to be here. I am a very discreet and cold person. I will not be overwhelmed or excited. I will not have too many expectations. I will be there with some of my friends, members of my team and my family. I can not wait to see things I’ve never seen before, just to see how things are going at this level. It’s just a learning experience for me.
