LOUDER REVIEWS: 'Make Me Feel' - Skip Marley
With his previous single 'Slow Down' featuring H.E.R making history, by being the first song by a Jamaican-born artist to become a #1 single on the Billboard Adult R'n'B chart, Skip Marley has been reaching new levels over the past several years. Being part of the immensely talented Marley family, it's not a surprise that Skip is carrying the torch through to a younger generation, by putting a modern sound to reggae.
His latest single 'Make Me Feel' has the same positive message that is often seen within Skip's music, however it this single comes with a summer anthem vibe, rather than having the reggae beats such as the ones in his previous hits. The track features icon Rick Ross and rising star Ari Lennox; the 3 musicians blend seamlessly together to create a chemistry that adds to the romantic lyrics. Ari Lennox stands out in particular in this track with her honey-like vocals that compliment Skip's perfectly, giving a sense pf peaceful harmony that works so well in R'n'B love songs. In a year that has been full of negativity it's refreshing to hear a song that carries loving lyrics and a joyous, hopeful sound. Skip Marley continues to spread his message of empowerment, love, and peace through his music in a way his grandfather Bob Marley would be more than proud of.
