JONASKAY returns with a third single “Lagrimas na cara”, on a prod by OGP, french beatmaker (Amiens) and mixed by SMITHWIZ, in Congo Brazzaville.
Fluuering between airy afropop and smooth dancehall in the service of hard-hi>ng words, JONASKAY explores a new color of the afrobeat rainbow.
Evoking his journey of exile, he manages the feat of making his pain luminous and vibrant, and even dancing! His rich, dense vocal harmonies draw on his African roots by ﬂir ng with RnB. Like a ghtrope walker, he oscillates between earth and sky, conﬁdently assuming his half-angel/half-demon side.
The clip, directed by ILYES BENYOUCEF, is also available the JONASKAY Youtube channel. It is ﬁlmed in Amiens (France), in emblema c places for JONASKAY. At his side, NIBOR, to whom he has been linked by an unfailing friendship since his arrival in France. Light, chiaroscuro. Merely.
