Highly acclaimed Reggae/Dancehall singer, Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley has become a fixture on Billboard’s Reggae digital songs chart thanks to his chart-topping single, Make It Bun Dem, crafted by popular American dance producer, Skrillex.


Premiered in January of last year, Make It Bun Dem has scored over 317,000 downloads, including nearly 7,000 download this week alone. The song has spent 21 weeks at the top of the chart and has also made an impact on charts worldwide, placing as high as 15th in Belgium, 16th in New Zealand and 16th on the UK dance chart.

It has also become a hit with Jamaicans, topping a number of charts, particularly TVJ’s Entertainment Report chart for several weeks.

Originally released as an instrumental in 2011, Make It Bun Dem was then re-recorded with vocals from Damian Marley‘s chart-topping smash, Welcome To Jamrock. However, Marley offered to do new, original lyrics for the song and by May of last year, the current version of the song was released.

The official video for Make It Bun Dem was subsequently unveiled in September and has garnered over 40 million views on YouTube alone.

Marley currently has four songs on Billboard’s Digital Reggae charts, including the aforementioned Welcome To Jamrock, Patience and Road To Zion, with the latter two songs featuring long-time collaborator and hip-hop superstar, Nas.

Skrillex, a California native, has been active in the music scene since his days as the lead singer of

From First To Last. The 25-year-old musician released two albums with the band before leaving in 2007 to pursue a solo career. He has also released tracks such as Bangarang (feat. Ellie Goulding) and Breakn’ A Sweat (feat. The Doors).
