Fresh off his appearance on JAY-Z’s brand new album 4:44, Damian Marley warms us up for his own forthcoming project, Stony Hill, by sharing this new single called “R.O.A.R.” “‘R.O.A.R.’ is really speaking about how, in Jamaica, what we call rudeboys always had a responsibility to the community. They would be the safekeepers — the people who keep the community safe from other areas or within itself,” Jr. Gong says of the military-style record. “That’s kind of changed over the years, especially with younger kids growing up without elders. This song is about reminding them of those values.”

Stony Hill, Damian Marley’s first solo album in 12 years, drops on July 21.
