Skip Marley via Youtube

Skip Marley, the grandson of Bob and Rita Marley and son of Cedella Marley recently became the first person in his family to appear in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Marley collaborated with American singer and songwriter Katy Perry on the song “Chained to the Rhythm” which entered the chart at number four.

And the 20-year-old is currently gearing up to release his debut LP which he says is about 80 percent complete.

Marley was born in Kingston, Jamaica to Cedella Marley and David Minto, and raised in Miami, Florida.

In 2015, he released his first single, “Cry to Me”, and a second single called “Life” under the Tuff Gong label. He later signed with Blue Mountain Music, and joined his uncles Damian and Stephen on their Catch a Fire tour.

In early 2016, he was featured in a Gap 1969 Denim campaign and signed to Island records earlier this year.

A video for Chained to the Rhythm was published to Youtube on February 21 and has already garnered close to 100 million views.
