South London rapper, Jeremy-Von-Sammy (JVS) has released brand new afrobeats-drill heat with his long awaited debut EP, “Year of Breakthrough”.
Loaded with summer bangers, underscored by gospel foundations and his love for God, JVS is speaking success into existence with the EP, aptly titled “Year of Breakthrough”. With a four-song track list featuring the songs ‘Outside’, ‘Ohemma’, ‘W’adom’, and ‘Ocean Eyes (Drill Remix)’, spiritual harmonies and choral synths infuse the EP with holy devotion.
JVS delivers urgent and inspiring half-rapped/half-sung lyrics about ﬁnding light through God, grinding for his dreams, and breaking through barriers in spite of the odds, against a backdrop of catchy melodies and bassy trap beats. Heavy-hitting and introspective, JVS ingeniously reimagines Billie Eilish’s triple-platinum certiﬁed dream-pop ballad ‘Ocean Eyes’ in his futuristic gospel drill style, and shows off his vocal versatility with smooth, soulful runs.
Meanwhile he pays homage to his native Ghana in tracks ‘Ohemma’ and ‘W’adom’, seamlessly blending afrobeats, R&B and Ghanaian music tropes into his stunning debut. Organically hitting 200k+ digital streams and counting since January, following a year of national radio play (BBC, Capital XTRA & Premier Gospel), live performances and awards, the EP foreshadows AMAZING things to come for the young rapper/singer.
Relatable and ﬁlled with the Holy Spirit, “Year of Breakthrough” is short, sweet and powerful: an ideal EP for an artist on the cusp of breakthrough.
