Morgan Heritage To Debut Music on NFTs

Grammy award-winning group and Reggae Royalty Morgan Heritage will drop three songs as NFTs, powered by Bondly Finance. A new song and two digitally remastered titles from their vast catalog. All three tracks are records from the upcoming album Legacy, which will be released on May 28th. 

This event will pair rare digital art with great Reggae music, through which fans and NFT collectors will be able to prove ownership of these items through the blockchain. By taking this approach, Morgan Heritage will become one of the most popular groups to release songs as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) prior to release on any other platforms.

Morgan Heritage about the partnership: “To have been chosen by Bondly to be the first Reggae artist in history to release new music along with songs from our catalog on the blockchain exclusively to the Bondly Community and crypto world in general is truly a blessing. We are very excited about the possibilities of working with Bondly through this partnership to open the door for others in our genre around the world as well as our peers across the continent of Africa."

The album not only covers the groups illustrious career but also takes you on a musical journey that spans 60 years of Jamaican music and its evolution throughout. Artist such as the most recent GRAMMY winner for Best Reggae Album and their belated uncle Toots Hibbert from Toots and The Maytals, Ziggy Marley, Stephen Marley, Shaggy, Beres Hammond, Rebelution, Bounty Killer, Chronixx, J Boog, SOJA, Diamond Platnumz, Stonebwoy and Patoranking just to name a few. 

The first track, labeled “Light It Up” has a special feature from renowned artist PelleK and the song will be released commercially on April 23rd. 

Bondly CEO Brandon Smith: “When I was introduced to their music by PelleK, I fell in love instantly and then realized how big their fanbase was globally. For us here at Bondly when it’s all said and done, we are pleased to be able to be the ones that brought Morgan Heritage and their amazing music to the 100 million cryptocurrency users that exist today.”

Each of these NFTs will give exclusive access to unreleased music and ownership of unique art before it’s shared with the world. 

This is just the start of the relationship between Bondly Finance and Morgan Heritage. Bondly expects to release more NFTs with Morgan Heritage in the future and is excited to execute the initial release of the three songs. 

Morgan Heritage NFTs will be sold through the NFT BondSwap Marketplace and NFT marketplace
