SKIP MARLEY & H.E.R. PERFORM + INTERVIEW ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA

Skip Marley alongside multi-platinum Grammy© Award-winning artist H.E.R. join Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series with a powerful performance of their #1 global smash “Slow Down,” followed by an inspirational medley during a time when so much change  and inspiration is needed. Reaching from within his family’s legendary catalogue, Skip covers two songs by his iconic late grandfather, Bob Marley – “Turn Your Lights Down Low” and the revolutionary anthem “Get Up, Stand Up.” To this day, Bob Marley’s music still functions as a universal call for political activism. 
Just weeks ago, “Slow Down,” with over 50 million global streams, became the quickest-streaming song in Marley Family history catapulting Skip to well over 165 million global artist streams.  At the same time, Skip became the first Jamaican-born lead artist to hit #1 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart and first inside the Top 15 on the Billboard 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 success of “Slow Down” underpins Island’s continuing 75th anniversary celebration of the birth and life of music legend Bob Marley, foundational icon in the reggae, roots rock, soul, and hip-hop saga, and Skip’s beloved grandfather.  With nearly 12 million YouTube views, the “Slow Down” video (shot on location in Harlem, NY) captures the amazing chemistry between Skip and ten-time nominated, two-time 2019 Grammy©-winner H.E.R.  They have performed the song live several times, including the television debut on Fallon, and a show-stopping performance at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards in February.  
“Slow Down,” “Slow Down (Acoustic),” and “Slow Down (Remix)” are the latest salvos from Skip, whose string of releases since last year includes That’s Not True, a collabo featuring Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley(his uncle); EnemyCan’t Take it From Me” featuring Major Lazer. Skip has earned critical acclaim from Rolling StoneFaderHypebeastVibe, and others.  Most recently during the quarantine, Skip performed acoustic sets launching Essences Music Monday series, Billboard LiveGlobal Citizen & World Health Organization and MusiCares. Stay tuned to Skip’s socials for more news and announcements as he prepares to release his much anticipated project in August.
