Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Legend is the world’s best-selling reggae album with global sales exceeding 40 million copies, including more than 14 million in the U.S. alone. The RIAA Diamond®-certified album holds the distinction of being the second longest-charting album in the history of Billboard magazine. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked Legend at No. 46 on its “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” list.
