Bob Marley’s grandson, Skip Marley, has been making a lot of noise in the music industry lately. The 20-year-old reggae singer recently performed at the Grammys with Katy Perry, he was featured on her newest single “Chained to the Rhythm”. Their collaboration has earned them No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Skip is the maternal grandson of the great Bob Marley. His mother is Cedella Marley who is Bob’s and Rita’s eldest child. She toured the world as a singer with her siblings Sharon, Ziggy, and Stephen in their group, The Melody Makers. Together they sold millions of albums and won three Grammys. Cedella is also the CEO of Tuff Gong International, a record label that was started by her father in 1965.

In 2015 he released his debut single “Cry to Me” and a follow-up single “Life”. Lately, Skip has been touring with his uncles Stephan and Damian on their “Catch A Fire” tour. In 2015 he was featured in Teen Vogue and last year Skip participated in a GAP campaign.

Skip just released his new single “Lions”. The song showcases a modern version of the very familiar Marley sound. Skip’s style is very similar to Damian’s, where he goes in between rapping and singing. The video for the single is about a rebellion that is taking place.
