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.
