Three-time grammy award-winning reggae band Morgan Heritage –– currently comprised of the Trinity: Peetah Morgan, Gramps Morgan, and Mr. Mojo Morgan, all the children of late reggae great and Father of A Nation, the Hon. Ras Denroy Morgan –– share their new single and music video “Just A Number.” The new track serves as an awareness anthem, sparking conversation around the topic of cancel culture and the ephemeral nature of fame. The accompanying music video was directed by Samo (Koffee, Chronixx, Protoje), and filmed at Independence Park (National Stadium) in Kingston, Jamaica.
Recorded and mixed in Kingston and Florida, “Just A Number” was “inspired by historic and current figures in the entertainment industry,” says Morgan Heritage. “The song speaks directly to upcoming sports, film, tv, and music entertainers and anyone pursuing a professional career. We want to warn them that it’s possible to work hard and sacrifice all their lives yet lose everything due to personal views or opinion.” Morgan Heritage continues, “As students of history, we know it is better to open minds than to close them. And that’s what we hope to do with this song.”
“Just A Number” is just the first release in what promises to be a very busy year for Morgan Heritage. Stay tuned for more information on new music, live performances and much more.
