The I Three, commonly called "I Threes", were a Jamaican reggae singing group that was formed in 1974 to support Bob Marley & The Wailers, after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer — the original Wailer backing vocalists — left the band.

The three members were Marley's wife Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths.[1] Their name is intended as a spin on the Rastafarian "I and I" concept of the Godhead within each person.
