Damian Marley Says He Is A Fan Of Chronixx Music



Damian Marley says he is a big fan of Chronixx music.

Both Junior Gong and the Chronology singer are nominated for Best Reggae Album at the 60th Grammy Awards set to take place next month. The two reggae stars released two dope albums this year with Gong Dropping Stony Hill in July and Chronixx dropping his album that same month. Both albums were well received by reggae fans globally.

Gong says that he is deeply honored to have gotten a Grammy nomination for his latest project and also praises Chronixx for his latest body of work. “Some good albums are in the category this year,” Damian Marley said. “Chronixx put out a really nice album, which I listen to as a fan. I like that album a whole heap. Morgan Heritage, who are close family friends of mine, they have a good album out too, likewise J Boog. I am not so familiar with Common Kings, but everybody else I kinda know them music and we are all friends.”

Morgan Heritage, Common Kings, and J Boog, are the other three artists who received a Grammy nomination in the reggae category. Damian Marley and Chronixx were also nominated in the reggae category for the 2017 MOBO Awards which Gong won last week.



Damian Marley Wins Best Reggae Act MOBO Award



Damian Marley picked up the 2017 MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act.

A day after getting a Grammy nomination for his new album Stony Hill for Best Reggae Album, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley picked up another prestigious award at Wednesday night’s awards show for Music of Black Origin in the UK. Gong beat out stiff competition from the likes of Chronixx, Popcaan, Alkaline, and Aidonia, who have all had a great year in reggae/dancehall.

Some fans on social media are saying that Chronixx deserves to win both the MOBO and the upcoming Grammy Awards for the reggae category. The roots reggae star released his critically-acclaimed debut album Chronology in July of this year. The project has been well received and even made Rolling Stone’s list of 50 Best Albums of 2017.

Damian Marley’s new album Stony Hill is also well received this year and rightfully earned him a Grammy nomination. Hardcore dancehall acts, Popcaan, Aidonia, and Alkaline have all had a great year despite not releasing albums this year. Those three acts are responsible for a large portion of the biggest dancehall songs this year.

This is Damian Marley’s second MOBO Award after winning another MOBO in 2005.

Damian Marley Talks JAY-Z Singing Jacob Miller On “BAM” Demo

Damian Marley got a chance to be a part of history when JAY-Z contacted him to be a part of his landmark “4:44” album.

The dancehall legend appeared on the single “BAM” which sampled Sister Nancy classic dancehall banger “Bam Bam” and Jacob Miller’s classic “Tenement Yard.” Speaking with VLAD, Junior Gong said when JAY-Z played him the hook he didn’t even know it was him. “Jay has the hook already he knew what he wanted for it, his voice was the demo,” Marley said. “I didn’t even realize it was him because I was like who is that and he said it’s me and I was like really.”

He did admit that JAY-Z is definitely not a singer but he was impressed. Damian Marley also said that Hov played the entire “4:44” album for him in the studio and he was very impressed just like the rest of the hip hop community was when the project finally dropped. The two music legends then went to Jamaica to shoot the visuals for the single and Damian Marley detailed how JAY-Z sent a private jet to him in Africa to fly him back to Kingston for the video.

“We did the song out in Los Angeles and then, of course, he wanted visuals to support it,” Gong added. “I was actually in Africa on tour, I was in Ethiopia and he actually sent a plane to come get and fly me straight from Ethiopia to Jamaica, so that was kind of cook. It was a great experience I had fun showing him around we were in Jamaica for two days really showing him around Trench Town, took him to Hellshire Beach and we spent an evening at Tuff Gong Studio in Jamaica so it was cool.”

Damian Marley said the people in Trench Town where his father Bob Marley grew up loved JAY-Z. Junior Gong new album Stony Hill is currently available.
