Stephen Marley lays down the law to his boo on this lead single to his upcoming sophomore set Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life: While he’s gone, there will be no smoking or drinking going on in his room, but she should stick around, with her “perfect smile” intact, and prepare for a major afternoon love-making session upon his return.
What sounds like some horriffic Lifetime Movie of The Week sex slave imprisonment plot on paper emerges a swoon-worthy Lovers Rock gem on wax though, especially once Melanie Fiona‘s smoky vocals make their way onto the track’s seductive slow wind, answering back Marley’s island-crooned orders to stay in place with a bunch of sexy, anxiety-edged writhing about (“Trying not to think about how I’m gonna do without your touch/ And I can’t stop thinking about the lovin’ that I’m needing so much”).
Homegirl really sounds like she ain’t gonna make it!!! We would tell her to light up a cig or take a sip of some dranky-drank so she could try and cool down in his absence, but then again…
Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life is due in April.
