OLDIES SUNDAY: @ZiggyMarley And The Melody Makers – “Tomorrow People” (1988)

May is recognized as “Child’s Month“, and we’ll be featuring content where the youth were stars. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the Marley siblings Sharon, Cedella, Ziggy, and Stephen a.k.a. Ziggy Marley And The Melody Makers with the track, “Tomorrow People“.

Produced by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, this was released through Virgin Records in 1988. On the track, Ziggy Marley And The Melody Makers provide some consciousness on this track. With lyrics like “Tomorrow people, where is your past? Tomorrow people, how long will you last?” over great production and energetic vocals, this was a song that made people think, and be entertained. “Tomorrow People” was featured on the group’s 3rd album, the 1989 GRAMMY winning Platinum selling “Conscious Party“. “Tomorrow People” has also been dubbed the “85th Greatest One-Hit Wonder of the 80s” by VH1.

Since the release of “Tomorrow People”, Ziggy Marley And The Melody Makers went on to release a few more albums, scoring 2 more GRAMMY awards, and flying the Marley flag as a group before disbanding in the early 2000s.

thank you Ziggy Marley And The Melody Makers!

.@ChronixxMusic, @SpraggaBenz3, @StephenMarley & Super Cat Join @SalaamRemi On New Album

After previewing some message music earlier this year, Producer Salaam Remi continues to do it for the culture as he finally dropped his powerful new album, “Black On Purpose“. Featuring collaborations with numerous black voices in music, he tapped into Jamaica and enlisted Super Cat, Stephen Marley, Chronixx, and Spragga Benz!

Having featured Super Cat and Stephen Marley months prior with the tracks “Push Time” and “Is It Because I’m Black“, Salaam Remi sought those who could help to push great messages in the music as the “Black Lives Matter” movement strengthened this year as racial tension in various parts of the world are on the rise. Chronixx can be found on “Afrikan Children” with Black Thought, and Stephen Marley appears for a 2nd time on the album with the track “Black Progress” which features Spragga Benz. “Black On Purpose” follows up his early 2020 release of “Do It For The Culture 2” which features Red Rat, Stephen Marley, Buccaneer, Majah Hype, Wayne Wonder, Spragga Benz, Ghost, and many others.

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 5)

First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 5 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.
