Hotly-tipped Jany Green has today dropped new single ‘Magic’, which features Kenny Beats. Jany has also announced details of new EP ‘Lost In Love’ to follow on August 20th, which features the joyous title track (released earlier this year) and more.
Jany Green’s new single is a crisp, confident clash of hip-hop, funk and soul from the LA (via Alaska) pop star in waiting – and a suitably ‘Magic’ pairing with producer-powerhouse Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Idles, slowthai). “I’ve admired Kenny Beats for a long time,”comments Jany, when introducing the track. “He is so versatile and knowledgeable that working with him was a real a goal of mine. ‘Magic’ makes me feel powerful, and not afraid to step out of the norm; like there’s a wave of confidence channeled inside you. I hope this song keeps a listener’s head up high in any situation.”
Jany Green defies classification, but exudes total star quality. He was born and raised in Alaska, growing accustomed to the dark, the cold, and the cultural isolation that made reaching audiences outside of the state a challenge. Having started making hip-hop at 11 years old, Jany found himself stuck in a negative loop of rap – to break the cycle, he moved to Los Angeles, and tasked himself with writing songs from a more positive space. “I wanted to create something joyful and full of love, and for me, nothing represented that more than my mom; so I decided to name the project after my middle name (which she gave me), and her maiden name, Green. What I hope is that Jany Green can help express positivity, love and joy for other people, the way that she helps me.” Already, Jany Green’s feel-good ambitions appear to strike a chord: early single ‘Little’ went viral – surpassing 8 million streams – with 2020’s infectious single ‘Move’ also featuring on a major Samsung campaign.
On his debut EP, ‘Lost On Love’, Jany Green’s golden touch is immediately evident. Recalling the charisma of early Pharrell – and with influences of soul, the psychedelic, hip-hop and affirmative pop – “Jany Green’s breezy optimism is providing the perfect antidote to the hellscape of 2021” (NME). Watch out for more from the ‘Lost In Love’ EP coming soon.
