Amazon Music goes deep on catalogue: starts with Bob Marley

Amazon Music has announced a new initiative called [Re]Discover, which it says will focus on digging into artists’ back catalogues.

It’s kicking off with Bob Marley this month: there’s a [Re]Discover branded playlist drawn from his entire career, but also the launch of an ‘Official Bob Marley Store’ on Amazon’s main shopping service, bringing together music streams, downloads and physical editions, as well as merchandise.

However, there’s more to [Re]Discover than just Bob Marley: Amazon Music says that the first Tuesday of every month will see it pick a new ‘artist of the month’ for the initiative, as well as launching new playlists for others.

TikTok launches #OneLoveOneHeart Bob Marley Unicef challenge

If you’re hearing Bob Marley’s ‘One Love’ a lot this month, it might be because there’s a campaign underway with a cover of the track that includes several Marley family members, to raise money for Unicef’s Covid-19 children’s relief work.

The new track, ‘One Love (Amplified)’, is out today. There’s also a TikTok challenge to promote the track and campaign, called #OneLoveOneHeart.

TikTok users are being asked to post videos using the song’s chorus, revealing who or what their ‘one love’ is, while nominating five other people to continue the chain – and donating to Unicef.
