Julanie J is back! The songstress released her latest studio album ‘Mooi’ late last year which spawned the hits ‘Dalk is Ek’, ‘Sandkastele’ and ‘Gegrond’. As she continues to introduce herself as an artist to South Africa, the singer has picked ‘Arm’, a romantic love letter to her husband as the next single off the project – and it’s made us believe in love again!
Julanie explains that she wrote the song a few years ago when she and her husband were engaged to be married. The catchy track is a beautiful look into their relationship and the joy their love brings to each other.
“The song is very personal. I wrote it for him. The song is about how we are very much the opposites of each other, but these differences make our relationship work,” Julanie tells us. “Also, it is the little things that makes one fall in love and stay in love.
As she celebrates the release of this single, Julanie has also premiered the official music video for the track. The video sees Julanie and her husband JP in a small flat in Cape Town, encapsulating the essence of a young couple that are building a home together.
“It would have been strange for me to make the video with an actor in his role,” Julanie continues. “I really enjoyed shooting with JP. Even though he is not used to being in front of the cameras, he got the ropes of it in no time. Now he also realizes what I meant when I once told him that making videos is hard work. The crew was amazing. All in all, it was an incredible day.”
Finally, Julanie believes that songs like ‘Arm’ are much needed in these strange times that we are living in. “The song is about joy and love and with its tongue in the cheek approach, it can make a tough moment just a little softer,” she says. “We can all do with some breather moments right now. Hope everyone enjoys listening to the song as much as I enjoyed writing it.”
