  • “Slow Down” feat. Skip Marley

    H.E.R. and Skip Marley, the grandson of reggae icon Bob Marley, combined their R&B and reggae prowess to create the perfect infusion on their 2019 single “Slow Down.” The collaboration peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B chart, making Marley the first Jamaican-born artist to hold the top spot.
