Highly accredited actor and recording artist, Rob Murat, teams up with multi award-winning dancehall artist, Jupitar, in their energetic new single, “Fly Away.” This decidedly feel good song is about enduring the difficult challenges of life’s low times and finding your way higher to better ones. Produced by Rob and Nate Williams (Rick Ross, Shark Wandvac, Verse Simmonds), the crisp and engaging track seamlessly fuses the infectious vibes of afro beat, hip hop, pop, and Caribbean music. “Fly Away” is a universal call to action inspiring listeners to tap into their inner impulses and go after their dreams, even if it means dancing their way to the finish line.
The global appeal here is undeniable as Rob not only enlists the help of Africa’s fastest rising Reggae/Dancehall artist in Jupitar, but also showcases the cultural diversity of his own upbringing with a nod to Haiti (the country from which his parents are from). In a surprise verse entirely sung in Haitian Creole, in which he is fluent, Rob urges Haitian people across the world to “rise up!” in the midst of one of the country’s most turbulent times.
“As a Haitian-American who understands the country’s rich history, it didn’t make sense to sit aside silently and miss this perfect opportunity to shine the light on the amazing potential that lies within Haiti and its people even in these dark moments.” -Rob Murat
Rob, a voting member of the Recording Academy, offers “Fly Away” as a final teaser off of his long awaited sophomore album, which also includes FYC (For Your Consideration) Grammy Award nomination contenders in the R&B and Music Video categories, Next To Me and Love Me Love (which features another Ghanaian superstar, Adina Thembi).
Jupiter is a recipient of Best Dancehall Act at the NELAS Awards U.K., besting the likes of Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Burna Boy and Ptoranking. He has shared stages with notable artists such as Busy Signal, Mavado and DeMarco and his debut album “The One” was released in March 2021 to much acclaim. Paired with Rob’s versatility – there’s no denying the true power of this timeless collaboration.
”Working with Rob was a pleasure and fantastic experience, we both pushed each other’s artistic boundaries to create a masterpiece cutting across music genres. The song and vibe is electric and dedicated to our fans!” – Jupitar
“Jupitar is the truth. He lit this track on fire. It’s an honor to join forces with such a gifted artist and I truly hope the world is uplifted by the energy, passion, and drive we put into this one.” -Rob Murat
