Saban Music Group (SMG), sing­er, song­writer, and pro­du­cer Nakkia Gold released her latest single, “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up)” fea­tur­ing GRAMMY® and Golden Globe® Award-nom­in­ated record­ing artist Wiz Khal­ifa, Bob Mar­ley and The Wail­ers. A remake of “Get Up, Stand Up” by Bob Mar­ley and The Wail­ers, “JUSTICE” is a rebirth of the mil­it­ant anthem, which played an integ­ral role in the fight for equal­ity and human rights in 1973. Fifty-three years later, Amer­ic­ans con­tin­ue to face inequal­ity, sys­tem­ic racism, and a long, pain­ful his­tory of viol­ence in the black and minor­ity com­munit­ies. In response, Los Angeles-born sing­er Nakkia Gold is tak­ing action through the imme­di­ate release of her single “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up),” which has already gained nation­al atten­tion.

Nakkia Gold com­men­ted, “The struggle has made us strong. This is the moment to break through the chains of social injustice. This song is a call to action in a time when it’s needed the most.”

When SMG founder Haim Saban heard the track, he imme­di­ately recog­nized Gold’s tal­ent and signed her to the label. From there, “Justice (Get Up, Stand Up)” was played for Cedella Mar­ley, who gave her full bless­ing for the use of her father­’s icon­ic lyr­ics in this uplift­ing song.

Cedella Mar­ley said, “I am proud that my father­’s leg­acy con­tin­ues to live on through his music. His mes­sage of peace and equal­ity tran­scends, espe­cially today, dur­ing these chal­len­ging times. I wish Nakkia the best in her new endeavor with Saban Music Group and only hope her mes­sage res­on­ates dur­ing this time of much-needed change.”

Wiz Khal­ifa stated, “Bob Mar­ley has always been an inspir­a­tion to me. I was pumped to hop on this track and keep his mes­sage alive about con­tinu­ing the fight.”

Gus Lopez CEO of SMG, said, “The first time I heard Nakkia sing, it felt power­ful. I knew people would listen and be motiv­ated by it. My goal is for Nakkia to help con­nect people in ways nev­er done before.”

Inspired by her core belief that “music tells a story,” Nakkia Gold dis­tin­guishes her­self from oth­er artists by empower­ing her com­munity with her soul-inspir­ing voice that weaves a tapestry of emo­tion and rich, melod­ic tex­ture rooted in R&B and con­tem­por­ary music.
