“FLY RASTA” Ziggy Marley with U-Roy
Bob Marley’s legacy grows stronger as two of his sons are dropping exciting new CD’s in the upcoming days. Ziggy Marley’s fifth album, Fly Rasta, is releasing this Tuesday, April 15th. The conceptual album kicks off with the upbeat party track, “Fly Rasta”. Sly and Robbie, the Melody Makers, and the legendary 72 yr old Jamaican legend, U-Roy contribute to the CD. The theme of the world coming together as one to make it a better place before it’s too late is Ziggy’s personal philosophy and the album’s prevailing theme. The lead single is a sure-fire hit and promises to put Ziggy Marley back on top of the iTunes reggae charts.
“THORN OR A ROSE” Stephen Marley with Black Thought
In 2011, Stephen Marley won a reggae Grammy for Revelation Part 1: The Root Of Life. Will lightning strike twice? The follow-up Revelations Part II is set for release this summer. Two songs, “Rock Stone”, a steamy dancehall track with a dub-step break takes reggae in an exciting new direction. The lead single, “Thorn Or A Rose” includes the Roots’ Black Thought. The laid back reggae track is an inspirational jam that recalls his father, Bob’s style with a modern interpretation. The two singles couldn’t be more different, yet both remind us of Stephen’s immense talent.
