J’Something doesn’t have to blow his own trumpet because he’s got Hugh Masekela to do that.
The trumpeter and front man of MiCasa teamed up for a single track entitled Heaven in You.
It’s a campaign for the larney Mercedes-Benz company and has the hashtag #EveryTerrain.
J Something says he had a ball of a time making the song and music video with Bra Hugh.
“Spending 48 hours with one of my mentors and someone I look up to in the music industry has been the highlight of my career,” he says.
And he says the legend can talk up a storm: “Listening to Bra Hugh talk about South Africa as his ‘first love’, witnessing the beauty he sees in everything - the land, the people, the endless opportunities and then watching him translate this passion into music was awe-inspiring.”
He took that love for Mzansi and created a collaboration that he says is a love song of sorts for SA.
“Heaven In You is more than just a great song; I wanted to write a love letter from Hugh Masekela for South Africa that captured his relationship with the country and my respect, love and gratitude I have for this land.”
The music video was shot on the Garden Route.
Fans are loving the collab and @LeslieAnneBoer tweeted: “#EveryTerrain with Hugh Masekela and J’Something just awesome take a bow everyone involved.”
It makes the Jika MaJika man’s heart soar: “I hope this song will inspire people to love and appreciate every curve of this country.”
