Julian Marley Releases Colors of Royal Album and Premieres Inna Mood Video


An official video for the hypnotic single “Inna Mood” premiered today on leading international reggae outlet World A Reggae. Directed by Damaniac Visualz, the sultry new video finds Julian performing the song at an intimate gathering on the sands of Wickie Wackie Beach in Bull Bay, Jamaica. As the sun goes down and the bonfires and ganja blaze up, beautiful Caribbean queens move their waist to the track’s intoxicating rhythm while Juju narrates the sexy scene:

She in the mood, Mek we move

She a move, Me a move

Under me herbs and me vital juice yah


Colors of Royal is an exciting departure from Julian Marley’s previous roots reggae offerings, and showcases his versatility as an artist. The album is a testament to the power of collaboration, as Marley and Antaeus have blended their unique styles and influences to create something extraordinary. Colors of Royal showcases a kaleidoscope of sounds and invites listeners to both think about the state of our world today and, at the same time, appreciate and enjoy life.

“This album is all about artistic freedom and exploration,” says Julian. “We wanted to create something that was both true to reggae music and also pushed the envelope, and I think we’ve achieved that with Colors of Royal. It’s a journey through sound and color, and we can’t wait for people to experience it.”

Colors of Royal track by track description by Julian Marley:

1. Jah Sees Them

We open the album with the song “Jah Sees Them” produced by Antaeus and Sean Alaric, a Grammy winner, who has produced for Koffee, Teyana Taylor, Jesse Royal and Protoje. The song’s overall message is that Jah is always watching, and those who engage in deceitful or harmful actions will eventually face the consequences. Like we say in Jamaica, “Jah nah sleep.” The song also highlights the destructive actions of those in power, such as feeding wars, building walls, and deceiving the people.

2. Robbed

Next comes “Robbed” produced by Antaeus and Billboard-charting Notnice, whose credits include Vybz Kartel, Spice, Popcaan and more. This song asks you to “Open your eyes…’ to the injustices and lies in society. “What is a king without a kingdom, what is knowledge without wisdom” suggests that power and knowledge are meaningless without moral and ethical values. The lines “Watch the media as they’re feeding ya, whatever brings more views, Medication cause the sickness that’s killing most of you” suggests that the media and pharmaceutical industries are complicit in perpetuating lies and causing harm to people’s health and well-being.

3. Inna Mood

“Inna Mood” is a girl song. It’s about love and the confidence that she will be my baby. The song’s upbeat rhythm and repeated lines create a sense of joy and celebration around the theme of love and attraction. It was produced by Antaeus and Prince Productions, who has also produced for The Game, Waka Flaka, French Montana, Kid Ink, Chris Brown and Gucci Mane. The video was filmed at Wicki Wacki Beach in Jamaica.

4. Made For Your Love

We continue the album with “Made For Your Love,” another girl song produced by Antaeus. The song’s romantic lyrics and slow, sensual rhythm create a sense of intimacy and closeness. “Your love was made for my love, your feel was made for my touch” captures the song’s core message, which is the intense attraction and compatibility between two lovers.

5. Roll

“Nuh matta how ruff the road, we’re still in control,” is the core idea behind this uplifting track. We can overcome any obstacle and keep moving forward by remaining resilient and focused on our goals. “Jah is my cruise control” because I draw strength from my faith and spirituality. “Roll” was produced by Antaeus, and the video was filmed at Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, Jamaica.

6. The Tide is High

Originally a reggae song by John Holt and The Paragons, it reached No. 1 worldwide with the 1980 Blondie version. This song, also produced by Antaeus, is both a girl song and a commitment and determination song. “The tide is high but I’m holding on,” and “I’m not the kinda man who gives up just like that,” send a clear message of where I stand on everything in life. The video was filmed at Devon House, a Jamaican National Treasure, which was built by George Steibel, Jamaica’s first Black millionaire.

7. Roll (Rodando Mr. Sonic Remix)

This remix is a collaboration with the great Argentine reggae singer and composer Bahiano. It was produced by Antaeus and Mr. Sonic, a multi-Grammy and Latin Grammy winner, whose credits include Santana, Shakira and Ricky Martin.

8. The Tide is High (Pentagono Remix)

This remix is a collaboration of Antaeus, Third World keyboard player Norris Webb and Dominican reggaeton producer Ch Produciendo.

The album was mastered by Grammy award-winning engineer Alex Psaroudakis.

British-born Julian “JuJu” Marley is the son of Jamaican musical icon Bob Marley and Barbadian mom Lucy Pounder. Julian is a roots-reggae musician, singer-songwriter, producer, and humanitarian. Colors of Royal follows Julian’s 2019 Grammy-nominated album, As I Am, which scored millions of streams worldwide, and features collaborations with Jamaican superstars like Shaggy, Beenie Man, Spragga Benz, and Addis Pablo.

Antaeus is an Award-winning music producer, record label owner and GRAMMYS voting member. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree (Music Industry). For his work, he has received numerous gold and platinum records. His credits include The Rolling Stones, The Boys, Earth, Wind and Fire, Tommy Lee Sparta, Jah Vinci, Yaksta and Julian Marley.

Antaeus achieved worldwide success with his four previous albums: Byzantine Meditation, World Prayer, Zero4 and Chromasounds. His music has been described as a “chill-out soundscape fusing voices, traditional instruments and electronica.” It can easily fall under the downtempo, lounge, world beat and chill genres. His songs have been licensed for TV commercials, and have been used in various compilations, including Buddha Bar.
