Already deemed a classic timeless album, Morgan Heritage’s “Strictly Roots” album reached no. 1 on the US iTunes Reggae Chart and Billboard Reggae Chart, debuted at # 2 in Switzerland and Holland, #8 in the UK and Germany and #4 in France on the iTunes Reggae Charts. The album gives music lovers all that Reggae encompasses with a diversified musical palette. It also displays the far-reaching impact that reggae has had on various genres around the globe.
The lead out hit charting single “Perform and Done” produced by Don Chandler and Seani B (BBC 1Xtra’s), received support and features on MTV, The Guardian, Clash Magazine, Radio 1, 1Xtra and billboard amongst other notable platforms. The single gave a dancehall infused sound, so it is befitting that the follow up single gave the true essence of roots and reggae with “Light It Up”.
Morgan Heritage have announced the second single to be taken from the album. In a historical move “Light It Up” features 2 reggae dynasties. The Royal family of Reggae is joined by Jo Mersa Marley, the grandson of the iconic Bob Marley and son of Stephen Marley.. “Light It Up” has a subtle yet powerful message with an easy backbeat pushed forward by a circling bassline, and as the beat drops and the first lyrics is sung “This is reggae music…” each note brings the song to life.
“Light It Up talks about being a shining light in the world. We believe this light to be love. By combining a new generation of reggae ambassador in Jo Mersa Marley to the fusion of Dubstep and Roots Reggae, this song really comes to life.” – Morgan Heritage
