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 MonÃ©t, 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.
