Mercury nominated J Hus goes to Jamestown, Accra in Ghana to capture the visuals for anthemic track ‘Spirit’.
Taken from his certified silver selling debut album, ‘Common Sense’, ‘Spirit’ is directed by Hugo Jenkins for whom authenticity is key. “capturing Hus on a miniature journey through Accra, meeting people and ending on an intimate show to me felt like the most authentic approach.” He said of the shoot.
A deeper look at the direction of his life before J Hus found wider recognition through his music, ‘Spirit’ was written for anyone caught in their own struggle, when talking about the concept of the tune J Hus said: “When I was inside, I used to listen to a lot of radio. I thought if I could make a tune that would go on radio that could then be heard in prison, then I could almost talk to myself in prison. I wanted a song that could really resonate with people in that situation. So if any of my tunes get played on radio, it’s great, but if that one gets played on radio then I’m going to be so happy. I made this one to try to keep everyone’s head up. It’s a purely positive message.”
With his European tour set to kick off in October, J Hus continues his strides towards greatness.
