Bob Marley Legend Reaches #5 on Billboard Mainstream Charts!

The best selling reggae album of all time just achieved another milestone last week by reaching #5 on the Billboard Charts, selling over 40,000 copies in a week due to a price discount from Google Play. Just goes to show how timeless Marley's music is, still having the power to stay on mainstream charts decades after the music being released. I can't help but imagine how Marley's music would be received today if he was a new artist emerging onto the scene with music never heard before. If that were the case, I still think his music would rise to the top considering his catchy hooks, captivating sound, and universal message. Tons of respect for this music! One Love

Roots Corner: Peter Tosh - Get Up Stand Up (Acoustic)

Acoustic track from the roots archive of "Get Up Stand Up" by Peter Tosh. Figured Id throw in the original since we posted the Aotearoa remix version a couple posts back. And since on the topic of voting, its interesting that reggae although a highly political music, tends to stay fairly neutral when it comes to endorsing political parties. I wonder what would happen if reggae was able to motivate the younger generations to go out and elect a younger political candidate who was a true leader that made changes to genuinely benefit the masses of people and wasn't down for the corruption that has polluted politics. After all, in a democracy, the people are the ones with the power.. who says it couldn't be the younger ones calling some shots.  Just some food for thought.
