On the heels of the release of his debut EP Higher Place, which soared to #1 on the iTunes Reggae charts, Skip Marley, releases the official music video for his buzzed about new single “Make Me Feel” featuring fellow Miamian hitmaker Rick Ross and R&B songstress Ari Lennox via Tuff Gong/Island Records. The video shot in Atlanta and directed by Lacey Duke compliments the summery vibe of the record with the trio checking out a neighborhood soccer game. “Make Me Feel” is a feel-good record with a groovy production accompanied with Ross’s effortless flow and Lennox’s sweet and soulful melodies singing the lyrics “let’s make this a good life even through the bad times,” a mantra that resonates loudly.
In May, “Slow Down,” with over 70 million global streams, became the quickest and biggest-streaming song in Marley Family history, and elevated Skip to over 200 million global artist streams It was the first time a Jamaican-born artist reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Adult R&B chart. At the same time, Skip became the first Jamaican-born artist inside the Top 15 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart in nearly a decade and a half (since Sean Paul and Keyshia Cole in 2006, “When You Gonna Give it Up to Me”).
The amazing chemistry between Skip and ten-time nominated, two-time 2019 Grammy©-winner H.E.R. performing live together was apparent during the song’s television debut on Fallon, then a show-stopping performance at the NAACP Image Awards in February, and the ABC Good Morning America Summer Concert Series session in June.
Skip has earned critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Fader, Hypebeast, Vibe, and others. Most recently during the quarantine, Skip has performed acoustic sets for the launch of the Essence Music Monday series, Billboard Live, Global Citizen & World Health Organization and most recently shared the stage with The Wailers, Cedella Marley, Pedró Capó, Rauw Alejandro, Camilo and Kany García for a an opening performance on the 17th Annual Premios Juventud.
