Seeing Ziggy Marley and Australian pop star Cody Simpson work on a track together seems a little out of the reggae artist’s element. However, on the their new collaboration, ‘Love,’ the two blend their sounds seamlessly, delivering a warm summery track that will warm anyone up this winter. The video for the effort does much of the same.
Sitting by the fireside with guitar in hand, Marley looks cool and the wiser of the two as they sing about love. The acoustic pop reggae track, which carries Marley’s signature Jamaican sound, is a rather simple song. However, he proves that there is a sweetness and wisdom in the simplicity of lyrics as he starts to walk around singing about the joys of the heartfelt emotion.
“Love can be amazing / So let me start by saying / Let me start by giving all the love I have / Hey, love is a lovely thing / So come on, let’s embrace it / Know that it can take us to another space, another place,” Marley sings in the visual.
While there is no news of any upcoming live performances with the two or future collaborations, it is nice to see Marley show the Aussie singer his reggae roots.
Ziggy Marley, who scored the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album at last month’s ceremony, is currently on tour to promote his latest LP, ‘Fly Rasta,’ as well as his first children’s book, ‘I Love You, Too.’
