Jono Grayson quickly became a fan-favourite on the first season of The Voice South Africa thanks to his comforting vocals and bubbly personality. After making it to the Top 13 in the competition, the star has been hard at work perfecting his brand new single – and it’s finally here.

Jono Grayson has just dropped ‘How I Love You’ and it’s the perfect track to showcase his talents. The pop track has a major tropical influence – a genre that is incredibly popular around the world at the moment. Jono puts his vocals on full display and hooks the listener in with his sincerity and emotion. The star sings over a soft beat which doesn’t hide the purity in his vocal – a clever decision. The song is well-written, catchy and serves as a fantastic reintroduction to the star.

“I wrote this song pretty much about a relationship that didn’t work out. The guy is looking back at when they used to be together and reminisces on the better times,” the 24-year-old explains. “I think it’s really relatable because I’m pretty sure most of us have gone through something like this.” However, although a break-up song, Jono wanted the track to be more jovial. I didn’t want it to be like a sad track. I wanted people to feel happy when they listen to it. I want it to be a song that people play on their road trips when they are cruising down the highway.”

The star admits that he has been working hard in the studio as he works on his upcoming album. I’ve got a lot more songs that I have written and I’m looking to just keep releasing more tracks. Really proud of this song and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.” The single is available on all major digital platforms now. Support local music and get your copy today.
