Jr. Gong returns with new sounds. Damian Marley is currently prepping for the release of his forthcoming studio album Stony Hill. Previously, Marley appeared on JAY-Z’s highly-anticipated 4:44 and even dropped off a previous visual to “Medication” with brother Stephen Marley.
Teasing the arrival of his upcoming body of work, the youngest of Bob Marley’s offspring has also delivered on the release of “R.O.A.R.”
“‘R.O.A.R.’ is really speaking about how, in Jamaica, what we call rudeboys always had a responsibility to the community,” Marley says of the track. They would be the safekeepers — the people who keep the community safe from other areas or within itself.
That’s kind of changed over the years, especially with younger kids growing up without elders. This song is about reminding them of those values.” Take a listen below.
