With music in his DNA, Yohan Marley has released a new single, “Breckell,” as he looks to write another chapter in Jamaican music with his foray into reggae-inspired music with a global fusion.

According to Destine Media, “Brickell (When Tears Fall),” was done in collaboration with Yohan’s brother, Jo Mersa Marley.

“The talented lineage delivers a modern R&B/Pop infused single capturing the feel of South Miami’s city lights, street and vibrant culture in particular in the famous ‘Brickell’ Downtown center,” Destine Media said.

“’Brickell (When Tears Fall)’ can be rightly described as a tribute to Miami’s financial center, Brickell, known for its glittering business towers and luxury condos tower over Biscayne Bay,” it added. “This shows the fantastic talent of Yohan Marley, uniquely blending pop and reggae, a feature that is not so frequently well executed in the industry at the moment.

Yohan said the song came to him late one night, as he looked out at Downtown Miami and the Brickell area.

“The lights, the water, the people, the energy, the culture, I was soaking it all in on a balcony high above, and the inspiration came,” he said. “Always a joy to make music with my brother, Joseph, the first of many I’m releasing to the world.”

Destine Media said Yohan and Jo Mersa were born to Stephen “Ragga” Marley, the younger of Bob and Rita Marley’s sons.

“The brothers have established themselves as a unique part of the next generation of the reggae royal family with their collaboration in 2016, titled ‘Burn it Down’ doing remarkably well in different parts of the globe,” Destine Media said.
