‘BLESSED’ is the brand new track by leading artist, producer & DJ Juls, live across all DSP’s today. The single arrives on the onset of post lockdown measures and enlists the help of Algerian-British singer/songwriter Miraa May and UK veteran rapper/singer Donae’O.
Never afraid to experiment with different sounds, Juls gives his new track a unique twist. Championing his Ghanaian roots and British East London upbringing, the 2x MOBO Award nominated Juls put his stamp on the UK music scene by boldly blending Highlife, Hiphop and Reggae into one; adding his own influential sound to the Afropop movement, but today he describes this track as ‘something different’ as this time he draws inspiration from the Brazilian funk scene.
Miraa May, the self-described Tottenham songbird, already caught the attention of Award winning, legendary producer Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas, The Fugees) who produced her second EP, ‘N15’, so it’s no surprise as to why Juls trusted her to deliver her smooth vocals across his addictive beats.
The ‘Party Hard’ hitmaker, Donae’O, a veteran in the UK music scene with a star studded line up of collabs including Giggs, Lethal Bizzle, Dizzee Rascal, JME, and Calvin Harris. He sprinkles his soulful vocals and gritty rap against the bouncing backdrop of the Brazillian Funk inspired beat.
Juls says: “This song is different for me. The Brazilian funk, the soul, the Afro Latin and the feel good vibes – I love it. It reminds me of being out in the sun at a BBQ or dance. The overall message of the song is about self manifestation. Great things are going to happen for all of us.”
