John Lundun, one of SA’s most popular music producers, has teamed up with the incredible vocal talents of Jessica LM on the brand new single ‘Crown’. The single is released ahead of John Lundun’s forthcoming ‘Aries EP’, due for release on May 10th.

’Crown’ is a song of encouragement to all the Queens,” explains Lundun. Women are side-lined, undermined in our society and so many of our industries. With all this happening, they should always remember to put their crowns back on, each and every morning, take their stand and impact the world as they have through generations.”

Working with a Queen herself who reigns supreme as one of SA’s best vocalists, Lundun explains how the collab with Jessica LM came about and what it was like working together on the ‘Crown’, saying “I knew Jessica’s manager, Muhle Matthew, from back in the day and we used to be part of an Indie band called 3D. I reached out to her letting her know that I wanted to work with Jessica and she got us together in the studio. It just felt like everything fell into place. It was easy and effortless, our energies just matched and it was a short session with so much done at the end of it.”

‘Crown’ is also the theme song for the Africa Rising Music Conference and will see John Lundun and Jessica LM perform it at the opening event.

The release of the single is accompanied by a fun music video.

John Lundun and Jessica LM worked with Tumelo from BSV (Bearlii Sober Visuals) on creating the music video for ‘Crown’. Both Tumelo and John directed the video, and Tumelo looked after the filming and editing of it.

So, how does Lundun feel about the final music video and how it links to the song? 

“It’s perfect! Not too much music going on, all the focus is on John Lundun & Jessica LM just doing the magic as if they were performing for a live audience. The bright background colours help so the viewer doesn’t lose any interest. It’s a minimalistic Music Video at its best.”
