LargeUp TV: Marcia Griffiths x Toppa Top 10 Reggae Love Duets

Words by Jesse Serwer, Video and Photo by Joel Ndunda—

Marcia Griffiths Valentines Day

No one has more classic reggae duets than Marcia Griffiths. The queen of reggae and former member of Bob Marley’s I-Threes has made hits with everyone from Beres Hammond to Buju Banton to Bob Andy, many of which are collected on her newly released Marcia Griffiths and Friends double CD. When we found out Marcia was planning something special of her own for Valentine’s Day this year, we connected with Marcia to select 10 of our favorite reggae love duets—meaning songs performed together by male and female vocalists, on the topic of love—for a special Valentine’s Day Toppa Top 10 countdown. Watch the video countdown below, and catch Marcia’s Valentine’s Day performance, at Gingerbay in Hollywood, Florida, live on her website tonight.

Tomorrow night, Feb. 1, sees the return of LargeUp friends Jasmine Solano and Melo-X‘s long-running and much-loved NYC-based party, Electric Punanny, so had Jasmine weigh in on a certain punanny-loving classic from Shabba Ranks that’s sure to get rinsed on Friday night.
