Morgan Heritage, a reggae band that has won three Grammy Awards, has unveiled “The Homeland,” its new album. Peetah Morgan, Gramps Morgan, and Mr. Mojo Morgan, the trio who makes up the group, are all offspring of the late Ras Denroy Morgan, the Father of A Nation and a legendary reggae musician.
The group’s star-studded 21-track album, their first since Denroy Morgan’s death last year, is expected to usher in a new era for Morgan Heritage as they aim to broaden their global influence from the Caribbean to the African Continent and beyond.
The “The Homeland” project honors Morgan Heritage’s proudly exhibited African roots. Afrobeat artist Made Kuti from Nigeria, Senegalese classic Youssou N’Dour, Ghanaian Dancehall giants Stonebwoy & Shatta Wale, and Grammy-nominated Ugandan star Eddy Kenzo are just a few of the mouthwatering African stars who contributed to the album. In addition, Jamaican superstars Popcaan, Beenie Man, Busy Signal, and others have made additional guest appearances.
Built upon a legacy that spans decades and will continue to advance, the record represents a rebirth for the Morgan brothers. They take the listener on a journey through their music that conjures up memories and envisions the years to come.
In anticipation of the April 21st release of “The Homeland,” Morgan Heritage has dropped a new song titled “Who Deh Like U” with Bounty Killer, Cham, and Stonebwoy.
