Ziggy Marley says there’s not a lot of music today that carries a positive message for humanity. He hopes to change this with his new self-titled album, which dropped May 20.
“We have a lot of entertainment and images and all types of things, but we have a message for the people, and we want that message to get across,” Marley told Billboard backstage at the 2016 BottleRock Napa Valley. “Hopefully the people can receive that message.”
But when it comes to his kids, pop rules. “My daughter likes the pop music stuff, like Taylor Swift and all those type of people,” he says. “So I get a dose of that in my house.”
