The Real Meaning Behind “Slow Down” by Skip Marley and H.E.R.

Skip Marley and H.E.R.’s song “Slow Down,” which is featured on Marley’s debut album Higher Place, was released on Nov. 8 of 2019. It hit number one on the Billboard Adult R&B chart the following May, and the video, released in January 2020, has more than 27 million views on YouTube.

“Slow Down”‘s lyrics capture the blush of young love in a budding relationship, encouraging them to “Slow Down” and enjoy each moment. “[In the video] I’m saying, ‘Slow down, be in the moment with me.'”, said Marley to “Vibe”. He enjoys love, expressing it in platitudes like, “Love is limitless. Love has no boundaries. Love is almighty,” and admitted to iHeart Radio that he believes in “unity, togetherness, one love forever.” He also likes H.E.R., saying she’s “such a great person.”

Surprisingly though, the two didn’t meet until after they collaborated on the song. And as to whether there’s any romantic relationship between them, fans certainly want there to be. When the uber-private H.E.R. vacationed in Jamaica in August 2020, social media detectives felt sure they were together, but so far, there’s no definitive proof either way.
