At the 66th Annual Grammy Awards, Julian Marley and Antaeus secured victory in the Best Reggae Album category with their acclaimed work, ‘Colors of Royal.’
Their triumph was especially notable given the formidable competition, which included three previous winners of the prestigious award.
The competing albums in the category were Beenie Man’s ‘Simma,’ Buju Banton’s ‘Born For Greatness,’ Burning Spear’s ‘No Destroyer,’ and Collie Buddz’s ‘Cali Roots Riddim 2023.’
However, it was Marley and Antaeus who emerged victorious, with the announcement made during the Grammy Awards premiere ceremony held in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Remarkably, Julian Marley was not present to accept the award in person, as he is currently on tour in Australia.
Antaeus, the producer behind ‘Colors of Royal,’ graciously accepted the honor on behalf of the duo and dedicated it to the people of Jamaica.
In his acceptance speech, Antaeus expressed gratitude to the Jamaican community, stating, “I’d like to dedicate this to the people of Jamaica who have accepted me as one of their own and have lived up to the motto of the country, ‘Out of many one’.”
A member of the winning team also extended thanks to the Marley family, acknowledging their significant influence.
Additionally, the team paid respects to Joseph Mersa Marley and Aston ‘Family Man’ Barrett with a heartfelt ‘RIP.’
