Matisyahu – “Love Born” (Video)

After releasing his hit reggae single “King Without a Crown” in 2005, many critics were quick to write off Jewish-American reggae artist Matisyahu as one-hit wonder.

Folks seemed to judge the Pennsylvania-reared artist based solely off his religion — what with much of his music incorporating his Orthodox Jewish beliefs, despite cosigns from the likes of Sly & Robbie and legendary funk artist Bill Laswell, both of whom he’s collaborated with.

Since his 2004 debut, Shake Off the Dust… Arise, Matisyahu went on to release four other albums, including 2006’s Youth which ended up going gold.

Now, more than a decade after releasing both Youth and Live at Stubb’s, Matisyahu returns to his roots (no pun intended) with the massive new tune, “Love Born” featuring Live at Stubb’s guitarist Aaron Dugan, Dub Trio bassist Stu Brooks, keyboard virtuoso BigYuki and percussionist Tim Keiper.
