Animated Video for ‘Three Little Birds’ With Ziggy Marley & Ringo Starr

Frederick “Toots” Hibbert was a giant of reggae, one of the genre’s pioneers and among its greatest stars, and Toots and the Maytals’ last album, Got To Be Tough, released Aug. 28 via Trojan Jamaica, is a fitting testament to a career that spanned 60 years.

It was also, sadly, Toots’ final album, as the Jamaican icon died on Sept. 11 from undisclosed causes at the age of 77. But there are still elements from Got To Be Tough that have yet to be released, and today Billboard is premiering the animated video of the Maytals’ rendition of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds,” which features Bob’s son Ziggy Marley and Beatles legend Ringo Starr on tambourine (and, in the video, all three in spaceships).
