Easy Star Records artists Zac Jone$ and Jesse Royal have teamed up on "The Weed Song" (watch it below). Both from Jamaica, Jone$ (nee Zachry Jones) hails from Kingston and Royal's from Maroon Town where Rasta roots run deep.
Jones came up with the the chorus and his lyrics while Royal penned his. “I wrote this song at a time when I was busy doing a lot of things outside of music," Jone$ says. “Every night after work I’d sit outside in my garden and smoke and I’d feel good in that moment; like that was my escape. One of those nights I just wanted to put that feeling into song. I pulled up the beat from Io (producer/artist Iotosh) and it all came together right there. I was saving it for the right feature, so when Jesse heard it a few months later and started writing his verse on the spot, I knew that was it. It was all organic so that was dope.”
The main repeat line in the song goes:
"Weed mek me feel good"
Jone$ calls himself a "multi-dimensional artist" and it shows on this catchy pop-reggae track. Since its release on Oct. 22, the YouTube video has garnered more than 130,000 views. "The Weed Song" is on Jone$'s upcoming EP, Man A Yard. Royal's most recent album Royal came out in March.
