Here’s Why J Hus already owns 2017

~”You don’t want to be compared to no one, you want to be original – you want to stand out from the rest.” ~

That’s it. That’s exactly why J Hus is taking 2017 for his own and isn’t about to simply kick off the next wave of Grime acts to emerge into the spotlight following its breakthrough year into the mainstream.

As he attested to in the aforementioned interview with Clash – the 20 year old from East London is setting his own path, not only with his commanding vocal presence and vivacious delivery, but his ability to craft an absolute smash before the age of 21. ‘Did You See‘, as you should already know, is a certified hit, a confident and undoubtably assured track that defines his already dominating template of evocative Afro-beat and avid lyrical play that is the evidence needed that he’s crafting something of his own.

With debut record ‘Common Sense‘ not even out until May 12th, Hus’ creditability is very quickly rising. A freshly announced tour of some of the UK’s most valued venues is selling out fast, and that’s exactly where he should playing straight from the off – a rise to the arenas would be a sharp arrival, but one most certainly not unadvisable and no doubt not far away. If you’ve had all this time and still not listened to ‘Did You See‘, do yourself a favour and listen below.
