Julian Marley, Teams up with Argentine reggae star Bahiano



Following the recent release of his critically acclaimed album Colors Of Royal, two-time Grammy-nominated artist Julian "JuJu" Marley, alongside Argentine reggae star Bahiano, Grammy-winning Venezuelan producer Mr Sonic, and producer Alexx Antaeus dropped the official video today for "Roll (Rodando Mr Sonic Remix)."


Directed by Justin Braham and Maria Somoza and produced by Level Music Group 305 (director/producer combined credits include Ozuna, Yandel, and Tito El Bambino, among others), the new visuals were filmed at several key locations in Miami. The international quartet are first seen holding court poolside after a rigorous recording session at the legendary Circle House Studios (home of reggae icons Inner Circle). After unwinding with a bike ride and a lively game of beer pong, the crew heads out for the evening to the world-famous La Scala de Miami to perform the song for a capacity crowd. The concert footage was taken from an actual show at La Scala, where Julian joined Bahiano onstage for the live performance debut of the remix.


Julian Marley said, "I am excited to finally release the 'Roll Rodando' remix video and to have worked with Bahiano and such a talented crew at Circle House Studio. It was a great vibes and a blessed experience collaborating with everyone and I think the video definitely captures the energy and spirit of the song. I can't wait for everyone to check it out!"


Co-producer Mr Sonic said, "I grew up listening to Bahiano and Julian's music, as well as his father. This is a historic recording, as it's the first time that an Argentine has recorded with a member of the Marley family, and for me, as a Venezuelan and as Antaeus from Greece being able to put this together, we know it will have a global impact."


Co-producer Alexx Antaeus added, "I've been wanting to work with multiple Grammy-winning producer Mr. Sonic for a while. When he suggested Argentine reggae star Bahiano, it was a no brainer. I just love this remix." "It has been an amazing experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity collaborating with Julian and Mr. Sonic to create this incredible track," said Bahiano about the collaboration. "And the fact that Julian allowed me to write and sing my part in Spanish makes it even more special."


Julian Marley is breaking free from convention with his new album Colors of Royal, a collaboration project with producer Alexx Antaeus (Earth, Wind & Fire, Rolling Stones, Yaksta), now on all streaming platforms via Monom Records. The 8-track collection, which features production work from Alexx Antaeus, Notnice (Popcaan, Spice, Vybz Kartel), Mr Sonic (Santana, Ricky Martin, Jon Secada), Sean Alaric (Teyana Taylor, Koffee, Protoje), and Prince Productions (Waka Flocka Flame, French Montana, Kid Ink), boasts four new songs, as well as the previously released singles "The Tide Is High" and "Roll," plus brand new remixes of both.
