Jamaican reggae artist Wayne Marshall will release his Tru Colors EP digitally onDecember 16, 2013 to give fans a taste of his highly anticipated album carrying the same name. His Tru Colors album will drop January 20, 2014 and is Marshall's first full-length release in over 10 years, following his debut Marshall Law (VP Records). Both upcoming releases will be available on the Marley-owned label Ghetto Youths International and distributed through Thirty Tigers/Essential.
Produced by Damian Marley, the 5-song EP showcases Marshall's range as singer, deejay (rapper) and songwriter and is the perfect mixture of his latest hits and new material.
The EP's two never-before-heard tracks, "Go Harder" and "Stupid Money," feature an array of star-studded collaborations. Harmonized by Marshall's unforgettable hook, Ace Hood, Baby Cham and Waka Flocka deliver hard-hitting verses on "Go Harder," the remix of Marshall's 2012 hit "Go Hard."
Okayplayer's Large Up claims "Stupid Money" is "catchy" and "wouldn't be too surprised to hear the song infiltrating commercial radio," while Boomshots says "rarely has filthy luchre inspired such eloquent expressions of enthusiasm."
In addition to these brand new singles, Marshall's most recent hit "I Know" nabbed a spot on the Tru Colors EP. The single is currently receiving rotation on Jamaican airwaves and its Jay-Will directed video is also spreading across the blogsphere. VIBE premiered the visual and raved that Marshall "rocks the party" on this "turnt-up bashment." Ebony also selected the video on their weekly music round up and loves his "braggadocious lyrics about being the ish."
Tru Colors closes with two bonus tracks from Wayne's hit-filled repertoire, including "To The Bank" and "Good Ole Wife" off the popular Matrimony riddim. Both songs are available exclusively on the EP and will not be on the upcoming album.
