Watch Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Bob Marley ‘Jamming’ in the Studio in ‘One Love’ Sneak Peek

In a new clip from the upcoming biopic Bob Marley: One Love, premiering exclusively on Billboard below, viewers go inside the studio with Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Marley and his full Wailers band as they record their signature 1977 reggae smash “Jamming.”

Ben-Adir — the British actor known for the TV series The OA and Peaky Blinders and as one of the Kens in the Barbie movie — captures Marley’s mannerisms and arm-waving moves in the clip as he lip-syncs to the classic song. In a sign of the times, Marley & The Wailers all record in one room simultaneously in the clip, as opposed to isolating vocals and instrumentals as is commonly done now.

As the track continues to play, we also see Marley playing foosball with his bandmates, so it’s not all work in the studio.

“Jamming” was released on Marley & The Wailers’ 1977 Exodus album, which peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and hit No. 3 on Reggae Albums. It was also included on the 1984 greatest-hits set Legend, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and has spent 818 weeks (and counting) on the tally — making it the second-longest-charting album of all time after Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon at 988 weeks. Legend has also spent a record 210 weeks (again, so far) at No. 1 on the Reggae Albums chart.

“Jamming” famously includes the lyric “No bullet can stop us now.” Marley was shot during a 1976 home invasion in Jamaica in an assassination attempt and fully recovered from his injuries. He later died of melanoma at age 36 in 1981.

Bob Marley: One Love — produced in partnership with the Marley family — hits theaters on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2024. Watch the exclusive clip below:
