After achieving gold status with his second studio album ‘Hy Loop Oop’ and winning the eighth season of Tropika Island Of Treasure, Brendan Peyper has finally decided to release a song in English. The Afrikaans pop star was introduced to a brand-new audience thanks to his time on the show and the demand for an English single was at an all-time high. ‘We Got Forever’, Brendan’s debut English single appears on the new deluxe edition of the album – and it’s a hit.
Brendan effortlessly delivers a world-class performance on the track. The writing is incredible and his vocal performance is one of his best yet. Everything from the dialect to the composition and the production has been crafted with such care and attention to detail and the result is a pop track that has the potential to top charts around the world.
The star dropped a nostalgic music video featuring clips of his time on the reality show which proved to be a ratings winner. Brendan and teammate Lisanne Lazarus won the competition in the nail-biting finale last month and, with that, a share of R1 million.
“Everything about the experience was awesome. The food was great, the vibe was awesome, the island is beautiful and I really enjoyed the flight to and from the Maldives. It was the first time I was ever overseas so it was a special moment for me,” Brendan says adding his teammate Lisanne Lazarus was a massive inspiration to him. “I truly had an incredible partner. We remained calm even though things sometimes went south, and we ensured that we kept the faith with God on our side – this was the most important aspect for us.”
Brendan added that the show taught him a lot about himself and life itself. “I always went in feeling confident because from the start I told myself to just enjoy the amazing experience, and even though you didn’t win anything through the initial stages of the competition, it was about how you recover after you gave your best and still lost,” he says. “It was important going into each challenge learning from your mistakes from past challenges”.
It’s exciting to see Brendan enter a new musical space with this new single and with such a phenomenal debut English single, we’re really hoping for a full English album in the years to come. ‘Hy Loop Oop (Deluxe Edition)’ is now available on all major digital music services.
