Skip Marley Shares Words Of Wisdom On New Single “Calm Down”
Skip Marley follows up debut single “Lions” and his history-making feature on Katy Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm” (he’s the first member of the Marley clan to land a top 5 hit) with a reggae-pop anthem called “Calm Down.” And the message couldn’t be more timely. “I thought we figured out how not to spill blood, I thought we figured out to walk away, I thought we found that love was not a failure, decided that the sea would have no waves,” the 20-year-old begins the song, before launching into the sing-along chorus: “I get worked up and they get worked up and we get worked up, for what? Calm down.”
The break-out star is hoping to promote love and understanding through his music, much like his revered grandfather, Bob Marley. “I want to spread my music to the people and help them unify,” Skip says. “I want people to take away a message of love, of looking at the way you are living and thinking where we can work to be or better and feel better. Whatever they’re feeling, I want them to be able to turn up my music and think, relax, and get good vibes.” Follow the man’s advice and press play below.
