‘Top Prize’ debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Album charts, No. 1 on the US Current Reggae album chart, and was 56th on the US Top Current Album Sales chart following Alkaline’s debut album, ‘New Level Unlocked’ which also debuted at No. 1 debut on the Billboard Reggae chart in 2016 achieving a milestone that no other Dancehall artist has managed to achieve since Shaggy in 2000.

Back in July 2021, one of the album’s producers, Maurice Linton of Armz House Records also received his very own plaque for the ‘Top Prize’.

Also in November 2021, fans of the Champion Boy caused a bit of controversy after the list of nominees for the 64th Annual Grammy Awards were announced and his name was absent from the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category.  Critics, however, argued that the Recording Academy members are required to vote solely based upon quality, without consideration for sales and chart performance.
