ANOTHER reggae song has made the Billboard charts this year. The latest is Right Time, a collaboration between Jemere Morgan and Chinese pop star Vision, which debuted this week at number five on the website’s Hot Singles Sales Chart.

In an interview with Splash, Morgan — who is the son of reggae artist

Morgan Heritage’s Gramps Morgan and grandson of singer Denroy Morgan — said he is grateful for the exposure the single has given him.

“I am thankful to Vision for choosing me for this collaboration. I give thanks for every platform that the record gets recognition from,” he said.

Right Time was released late last month by Jamdiggy Records. Morgan said the link with Vision came when they were introduced through Warren Bloise, a mutual friend.

“When Vision and I linked, we clicked as good friends, and the music chemistry was there as well. Eventually, it made the record,” he said.

Right Time, according to Jemere, is a “party song about unwinding and just enjoying yourself at a club after a long week of work”.

This is not the first time Morgan’s music has made the Billboard charts. In April, the album Strictly Roots by Morgan Heritage topped the Reggae chart; he is featured on So Amazing, one of its tracks.

Morgan, 21, was born in Brooklyn, New York. He currently lives between Tennessee and Jamaica.

His biggest musical influence is his father, but he also admires American pop stars Mario and Chris Brown, as well as neo-soul singer IndiaArie and soul legend Otis Redding.

“I fell in love with music when I went on the Van Warps Tour with Morgan Heritage for seven weeks. Seeing my father and his bandmates perform really inspired me. There I realized that music was the only thing that I wanted to do with my life,” he said.

Jemere Morgan also performed with Morgan Heritage on the Catch a Fire A Tour — alongside Damian and Stephen Marley and Tarrus Riley — of the United States in August, and their Strictly Roots European tour in October.

He is currently working on his EP, Transition, slated to be released in early 2016.
