Though summer is officially over, Skip Marley is keeping the mood of our favorite season going with new music. The two-time GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter has teamed up with Popcaan for his aptly-titled single “Vibe.” The Rykeyz-produced track serves smooth reggae-meets-Afrobeats energy, instantly transporting listeners to a tranquil and tropical mind state. Marley explains, “Vibe is a feeling, a whole spirit, and energy. A movement that brings light and life. It's about being alive!”
This latest track marks Marley's first release since his debut EP Higher Place was reissued via a special one-year anniversary expanded vinyl earlier this summer. Originally released in August 2020, vinyl lovers worldwide were eager to cop the beige, limited-edition vinyl with the song lyrics printed on the inner sleeve. Shortly thereafter, Marley teased his adoring fan base for weeks with snippets of the new track and promises there's more on the way. He describes another collaboration, this time with Ghanaian artist Stonebwoy, as “an Afro 'dancy kinda vibe' tune” and assures fans that there’s more reggae to come. With the growing list of travel restrictions, we’re looking to forward to transcending to encroaching cool weather through the warm, sultry spirit of his music.
