Today is the first day of 2020, an unknown decade to us all. Usually, most people feel a sense of renewal, that breathe of fresh air, and a chance to start over with life. To me, Jo Mersa Marley’s 2019 track ‘Burn It Down’ is synonymous with ridding ourselves from our hangups and travesties, so we can enjoy life again. Check out the visual below featuring Yohan Marley. According to the text on SoundCloud, “This revolutionary track addresses racial violence and tension in the nation(from the South Carolina church burning and Trayvon Martin’s death) and also touches on his own friends that have been innocently gunned down in Jamaica by police.”
