Coming off his Lost In Time Festival this past Saturday in Kingston, Jamaica (to a sold out crowd of 7500 patrons at Hope Gardens), Protoje released a new song and video today, “Legend Legend.” For those that don't know, this one is a Bob Marley inspired tune. He’s releasing this following Bob Marley’s birthday celebration and the release of the Bob Marley: One Love movie (in theatres now). This song has such a sweet vibe, a great beat and riddim. I love how Protoje flows through Bob’s song titles and albums, he makes it work so well, he just flows through the lyrics, nothing forced.

We see clips of Protoje in different spots in Jamaica, traveling in a VW van, at the Lost In Time venue and on stage performing live. A nice mix of views throughout Jamaica. “When I was writing this song you know I was just vibing and improvising, and when I said “Legend Legend” I thought of Bob Marley’s compilation and the idea just came to be creative and use his album and song title names to write the lyrics. My dad (Calypso king Mike Ollivierre) when I was younger did the same thing with one of his inspirations Sparrow, a big Calypso star. He used all of his song titles to write a song, and I always thought it was a good concept to pay homage to someone you respect.” – Protoje. The way Protoje goes from one verse to the next, one Bob Marley song or album to the next, is perfection.


“Tell dem

Exodus, bomoboclaat you can’t stand next to us

Some a talk and plan, want get we trust

Babylon dem gone want get we trust

If one thing me learn from di Bible

Can’t even trust your disciple

When idol dem turn to rival

Confrontation, uprising survival

Wailers wailing pon my arrival

Zimbabwe dem catch the prey

Accra, Lagos, Nairobi royal

Addis Ababa, we free

Haile dem can’t conquer we

The Most High can’t get no higher

Matty dread burning the Kaya

The whole place it must catch a fire”


With his recent release 30 Million, the reggae superstar dives into societal issues facing Jamaica today while lifting up his people in this thoughtful track. And now with the release of “Legend Legend”,  Protoje has started off 2024 on fire. Let’s hope this means more great songs are on the way and hopefully another album.
