Ayra Starr, a rising star from Nigeria, and Skip Marley have teamed up on the upbeat new song “Jane.”
“Jane,” a Rykeyz production, begins with a skipping percussion pattern and a calming jumble of dense synths. Later, some incredibly quiet horns are added as a punctuation. “Hold on, hold on we gonna get through this,”“Hold on, hold on we gonna get through this,” On the chorus, Marley and Starr sing, “Roll on, roll on, we gonna medz through it/Good for my wellness/You make me stress less.”
The song is a masterful blending of two captivating voices, exhibiting a groovier and lighter RnB that is appropriate for both voices.
Marley stated in a press release, “ ’Jane’ is really about finding that thing in your life to keep you balanced and free from stress. It was a good common ground for Ayra and I to instantly connect and set the vibe.”
Marley’s second single of the year is “Jane,” following the release of “Change” in April. After releasing his debut EP, Higher Place, in 2020, the reggae artist/scion has kept busy over the last few years with a continuous stream of music. Marley is also in the midst of a run of North American performances that will last until November. These performances include various festival concerts.
Ayra Starr, whose debut album, 19 and Dangerous, was released last year, has kept herself busy in 2022 with a variety of one-off songs and collaborations.

I want to perform better. I will keep finding myself, and I’ll learn things about myself I want the world to learn too, and I’ll try to teach it through my music.” when talking about her future in music.
