He’s rapidly becoming a household name in the UK and yesterday, J Hus made his first appearance on Radio 1 with Annie Mac.
Before his performance of his track ‘Spirit’, the two had a chat about common sense being nominated for the mercury prize – to which the Radio 1 debutant revealed that he is still excited about it and really can’t wait for the event.
Touching on what the nomination means to him, he said “It’s crazy – this is something we wished for when we were making the album, so I’m just delighted to be amongst those names.”
The pop star recently released the video to his track ‘spirit’ off his debut album ‘Common Sense’ and highlighted what it meant to him, having shot the video in Ghana. “I was there (Ghana) for 5 days and it was a beautiful experience. They welcomed me with open arms and we got to capture some amazing moments, so yeah i love it’
Speaking on how incredibly well the album has been received everywhere, the ‘Did you see’ hit maker said that “It’s been amazing, it’s everything i hoped for. I slept in the studio, put so much work in this album – so it’s everything we wished for seriously”.
In the midst of the conversation with Annie Mac, J Hus performed a live version of ‘Spirit’, ‘Bouf Daddy’ and his own rendition of DJ Khaled’s song ‘Wild Thoughts’ featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.
