Jamaican reggae band Morgan Heritage has collaborated with Jah Prayzah on a single which is set to be released soon.
Morgan Heritage, currently composed of a trinity of Peetah, Gramps, and Mojo, all children of the late reggae great Ras Denroy Morgan, hinted at the collaboration during an interview on a local podcast hosted by German-based arts entrepreneur Plot Mhako. Said Morgan Heritage:
This year we have a song coming out with an artiste called Jah Prayzah from Zimbabwe. We are looking forward to bringing that…
The song is part of their Jamaica and Africa collaboration drive which has seen them working with top musicians from the continent among them Diamond Platnumz and StoneBwoy.
Morgan Heritage has shared the stage with Jah Prayzah over the years during the group’s visits to the southern African country for performances.
Morgan Heritage recently released a new single “Just A Number” which speaks on how one can lose the fruits of their hard work overnight due to inconsiderate opinions. Said Morgan Heritage:
Just A Number was inspired by historic and current figures in the entertainment industry. The song speaks directly to the upcoming sports, film, television, and music entertainers and anyone pursuing a professional career.
Burrell said Just A Number is an awareness anthem, which sparks the conversation around a much-needed topic surrounding the unfortunate reality of how one can jeopardize their legacy or financial accomplishments one has worked so hard to achieve.
Heralded as the Royal Family of Reggae, the band has released 12 studio albums, including Strictly Roots, which won the 58th annual Grammy Awards for best reggae album.
With a career spanning two decades and over, Morgan Heritage has worked with numerous multi-Grammy award-winning artists and producers across multiple genres of music.
