Miami's financial district inspires Yohan Marley's single "Brickell"

Yohan Marley has released a new single as he looks to write another chapter in Jamaican music with his foray into Reggae inspired music with a global fusion.

Titled “Brickell (When Tears Fall)”, the new track was done in collaboration with his brother Jo Mersa Marley. The talented lineage delivers a modern R&B/Pop infused single capturing the feel of South Miami’s city lights, streets, and vibrant culture in particular in the famous “Brickell” Downtown center.

The song can be rightly described as a tribute to Miami’s financial center.

 Brickell, known for its glittering business towers and luxury condos, tower over Biscayne Bay. 

“This song came to me late one night looking out over Downtown Miami and the Brickell area. The lights, the water, the people, the energy, the culture…I was soaking it all in on a balcony high above and the inspiration came. Always a joy to make music with my brother Joseph, the first of many I’m releasing to the world," he said of the song. 

The Marleys: Jo Mersa and Yohan
