Today, Morgan Heritage, the 3x Grammy award-winning reggae band, unveil the official music video for “Ready” ft. Shatta Wale, J Chameleon & RJ the DJ, a single from their newest album The Homeland.
Injected with a variety of vibrant colors and a Carnival-esque feel, “Ready” is not only the epitome of being ready for anything that may come your way, but having fun while doing so –– “Sometimes you must let it all hang out and just have a good time,” says Morgan Heritage on the track. The Royal Family of Reggae, joined by who his fans call the African Dancehall King, Shatta Wale, is sure to transport the listener to better spirits by the end of the four-minute video. The single will be officially released this Friday, May 5, and can be pre-saved/added here.
