SKIP MARLEY RELEASES NEW SINGLE 'JANE' FEATURING AYRA STARR & SHARES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Two-time GRAMMY® Award nominated songwriter and musician Skip Marley returns with a brand new single titled 'Jane' featuring Nigerian-based Afropop sensation Ayra Starr. Listen HERE.

An irresistible end-of-summer jam, 'Jane' was produced by Rykeyz (who also produced Skip's #1 single 'Slow Down' with H.E.R., as well as hit songs by Jessie Reyez, Ari Lennox, Demi Lovato, and Rick Ross, among others). Recorded in Miami, the single comes with an official music video directed by Mid Jordan, featuring both Marley and Starr. Watch the official music video for 'Jane' Featuring Ayra Starr HERE.

Speaking on his latest single, Marley shares: "'Jane' is really about finding that thing in your life to keep you balanced and free from stress. It was a good common ground for Ayra and I to instantly connect and set the vibe."     

Currently, Skip Marley is on his North American festival tour including headlining slots at Beacon Park in Detroit, MI tomorrow night, as well SummerStage in Central Park, NYC on September 26. On September 21, the young Marley will commence his headlining CHANGE TOUR, starting in Toronto, Canada. For tickets and more information, go to: www.skipmarley.com/tour

'Jane' Ft. Ayra Starr follows his last single, 'Change' released earlier this year via Tuff Gong/Island Records. Produced and co-written by Oscar Holter (The Weeknd, Coldplay, Katy Perry, P!nk,) the feel-good, reggae tinged track brought all of the positive vibes at a time where the world needs it most and signified a new chapter for Skip Marley who is currently working on his debut album. Listen to 'Change' HERE.

Skip Marley earned his first RIAA Gold certified single for the #1 global smash 'Slow Down' with GRAMMY® Award-winning artist H.E.R. With over 200 million global streams, the song became the quickest and biggest-streaming song in Marley family history, and elevated Skip to over 440 million total 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 with "When You Gonna Give It Up to Me"). The track spent 3 weeks at #1 at R&B Radio. Skip was nominated for two Grammy Awards (Best R&B song and Best Reggae Album) and two Soul Train Music Awards, an NAACP Image award, and Best New Artist at the iHeart Music Awards.

DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF MIRAA MAY ON DEBUT ALBUM 'TALES OF A MIRACLE'

Today, one of the UK's most gifted artists, Miraa May unwraps her highly anticipated debut album titled 'Tales of a Miracle'. The Algerian born singer has already demonstrated her impeccable songwriting abilities, having co-written for the likes of Jorja Smith on her hit single 'Be Honest', Mahalia on her single 'Jealous' and Little Simz for her short film 'I Love You, I Hate You'.

Now Miraa raises the stakes even higher, welcoming fans to witness the rawness that has resulted in this remarkably powerful 17 song set.

Previously released and much loved singles 'Go Girl', 'In My Feelings', 'Big Woman' and 'Wild Things' have to this point, shown different sides of Miraa. What may appear to be an R&B or pop project at first glance, becomes intricately revealed as a deeply personal album, proving what a brilliantly unique artist Miraa May is.

Heavy influences of jazz and afro pop can be found seductively weaving its way through tracks like 'Scandalous', 'Tight Tight' ft. Mnelia, 'Peckham Love' and 'Empress Me' ft. Dyo.

'Are You Ready?' is a bold entry as the introduction and sets precedence to the fearless project. Over striking piano chords transitioning into fierce drums, Miraa commandingly sings 'you can never hide from a woman, I'll take it all' - enforcing her confidence and status as a woman, Miraa has arrived and she's here unwaveringly.

'Sugamamacita' is divine feminine royalty, and a front runner for the hot girl anthem of the entire project, possessing the potential to release the inner vixen in every listener.

'Miraacle Freestyle' unfolds with a striking vocal in Algerian Arabic, her native tongue. This specific song gives fans new and old, an intimate insight into the struggles she has overcome and how much stronger she has become because of it.

Latest single 'Internet Trolls' couldn't be more relevant songs in today's social media era, and asks important questions to people who find time to hate, when they should be "getting their money up" instead.

Miraa vocalises her dismay singing "because I'm reading all this sh*t that these people talking online, when I see them in the real time it's a different vibe / you must be joking around, you don't know what I'm about."

Despite the delicate vocal, the track sends out a stern message on trolling and trolls: Miraa is not to be played with.

Dedicated to her son, 'Akeem's Outro' is a beautiful close to this regal body of art, encapsulating the pure love and joy Miraa finds in being his mother.

On top of roaringly infectious baby giggles, she sweetly serenades, "I'll never let you go, you're like my saviour / we could leave the world right now, I'll still be by your side".

Although it closes the 'Tales of a Miracle' chapter, this outro cements the beginnings of newness in her life: new love, new happiness and new strength.

Searingly honest and remarkably candid, 'Tales of a Miracle' is a beautiful blend of all genres, evoking and provoking the survivor in everyone.

All the glimpses of familiar melodies and experimental lyric renditions make this very new project feel like a sonic home you've always known and found total comfort in.

If Miraa May is a name unknown to you before today, prepare to be converted into a fan for life.

'Tales of a Miracle' is miraaculous in every sense, further illustrating why the young artist is a force to be reckoned with not just on her home turf, but way beyond.

The sixteen-track album sees the global icon serving up his classic infectious sound and party-starting rhythms, just in time for the summer.

The new album also includes previously released songs "Scorcha," "Only Fanz" (ft. Ty Dolla Sign), "Dynamite" (ft. Sia), "How We Do It" (ft. Pia Mia), and "No Fear" (ft. Damian Marley & Nicky Jam).
