article reposted by Chelsea


GRAMMY-WINNING, multiple Billboard chart-topping artiste, and international reggae icon unveiled his anticipated new album, Born For Greatness, this week via Gargamel Music/Roc Nation Records /Def Jam Recordings.

Among many highlights, the single Body Touching Body, featuring Victoria Monét, displays his uncanny ability to seamlessly merge not only sounds and vibes, but cultures as well.

From the introspective acoustic guitar-driven opener Ageless Time, through a choral chant for liberation uplifted by horns on the finale Let My People Go, the album moves with the momentum of a big-screen epic. Buju Banton locks into a bold back-and-forth with Stephen Marley on the standout Feel A Way.

The album is a testament to his lyrical talent, an opus with 17 pieces.

Born For Greatness arrives as the full-length follow-up to 2020’s universally acclaimed Upside Down 2020, which garnered a Grammy nomination in the category of Best Reggae Album and earned rave “4-out-of-5 star” reviews on both sides of the pond from The Guardian and Rolling Stone, respectively.
