Bob Marley fans can look forward to the release of a special new type of greatest hits album, Africa Unite. The Marley family and Universal Music Group have just announced this exciting project paying tribute to Bob’s most iconic songs, but reimagined by some of Africa’s biggest music artists. To date, three singles have now been released. In January, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie put his spin on The Wailers’ early hit, “Stir It Up”. Last month, “Waiting In Vain” was giving the Africa Unite treatment by Nigerian artist, Tiwa Savage. And today, the album’s new version of “Three Little Birds”, featuring Nigerian singers Teni and Oxlade, is now available on all platforms. The full album will be released on August 4th, but you can pre-save and pre-order it now right here!
