One of our favourite voices in South African pop music, Jesse Clegg, is back! The singer has taken some time off to record his upcoming album The Unseen, which drops in a few days, and has chosen a killer track to serve as the album’s next single. Breathing, featuring the vocals of the uber-talented Shekhinah, sees Jesse head out in a bit of a new direction – and we love it!
Jesse’s music has always been more than a sort of poetry than a generic pop song and this is exactly the case with this track. However, Jesse enters a territory he has never been in before as he adds heavy elements of deep house into the song. Still, the production doesn’t overshadow his vocals that he puts on full display here. Jesse is incredibly talented and if we ever needed proof, this is it. Shekhinah also adds a beautiful element to the song and I love how their voices match so effortlessly.
The song is an incredibly strong lead single and is bound to be a smash hit for both artists. The track comes after the success of previous singles Use Me and Souvenir, both which appear on his brand new album. Things Unseen features 10 brand new tracks from the star and after hearing this track, we’re even more excited to see what he has in store for us this time around.
