Uprising

Uprising is a 1980 (see 1980 in music) album by reggae singer Bob Marley. As Marley died the following year, Uprising was the final studio album to be released during his lifetime. This album is one of Marley's most directly religious, with nearly every song addressing his Rastafarian beliefs, culminating in the acoustic folk classic, "Redemption Song[?]".

Uprising peaked at #41 on Billboard's (North America) Black Albums chart, and #45 on the Pop Albums chart. "Could you be loved" was #6 and #56 respectively on the Club Play Singles and Black Singles charts.
