KINGSTON, Jamaica – Retired Jamaican track and field legend Usain Bolt is celebrating success in another field – music.

Bolt, who is now a music producer, recently received a plaque for hitting the Billboard Reggae Albums chart with his Country Yutes album which debuted at number six on the chart in September 2021.

The post has already received tens of thousands of likes, with many people sending congratulatory messages to the sprint icon.

Bolt, an eight-time Olympic champion, has recently endured some amount of distress with the theft of millions of US dollars from an account he owned at fraud-hit investment company Stocks and Securities Limited.
