Morgan Heritage Here Come The Kings on LP
Globally known as the "Royal Family of Reggae," and now today being dubbed as the "Rolling Stones of Reggae" (in large part due to the act's electric stage shows), Morgan Heritage has established themselves as the premier live group on the reggae circuit. From an extraordinarily talented teen quintet to one of contemporary reggae's most powerful forces, Peetah Morgan (vocals), Una Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Roy "Gramps" Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Nakhamyah "Lukes" Morgan (rhythm guitar) and Memmalatel "Mr. Mojo" Morgan (percussion/vocals) returned in 2013 with Here Come The Kings – the collective's first musical arrangement in five years.
Here Come The Kings is a refresher course for culture music fans, staying true to Morgan Heritage's authentic Rockaz style, with brilliant instrumentation and empowering lyrics. However, collaborations with ingenious young blood producers like Lamar Brown (Notice Productions), Shane C. Brown (Juke Boxx Productions) and multiple Grammy nominee, Jason "J-Vibe" Farmer, lead the band to explore new sounds that successfully fuse roots, R&B, and a hint of dancehall, evident on the cover of "Girl is Mine" and the album's first single "Perfect Love Song."
The album was co-produced by Morgan Heritage, alongside some of reggae's most innovative talents including: Linton White ("Perfect Love Song"), Shane Brown ("The Return"), Jason Farmer ("Girl is Mine") and Donovan "Don Corleon" Bennett ("Call to Me"). Grammy-winning Jamaican icon Shaggy lays his indistinguishable vocals on ladies anthem "Loved Stoned" and on their "Girl is Mine" cover, the Morgans stay true to Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney's original, yet bring dancehall to the tune, mid-song, replace Paul and Michael's conversation with a singjay verse. Here Come The Kings reminds us, that the pulse of one of reggae's most enduringly successful acts, Morgan Heritage, will be eternally pure.
