"I'm everything you've heard before, and nothing you've ever heard before..."
J Hus is one of the hottest propositions in British music today.
In 2015, his first ever mixtape '15th Day' all but created a new genre and he was quickly crowned king of the scene, amassing millions of plays on YouTube and Soundcloud with singles such as 'Dem Boy Paigon' and 'No Lie'. His nomination for 'Best Newcomer' at the 2015 MOBO Awards along with his inclusion on the prestigious long-list for the 2016 BBC Sound Poll are both prime examples of the recognition Hus received right from the beginning of his career.
In 2016, some of his most notable feats included helping Popcaan's Mixpak stage win Red Bull's Culture Clash, as well as being invited to join Skepta and Burna Boy to perform in Lagos, Nigeria. The year 2017 was an opportunity for J Hus to really announce himself on to the scene, one which he took full advantage of, with high profile collaborations with fellow peers such as Dave, Nines, Mostack - as well as featuring on Stormzy's number one album 'Gang Signs & Prayers'.
The release of his Gold selling debut album 'Common Sense' earned him the number six spot on the official album chart, selling an impressive 240k plus units to date. His track 'Did You See' also went on to become a top ten, platinum selling single, having sold well over 600,000 units. The visuals for 'Did You See' has also racked up over 65 million views along with a staggering 134 million plus combined Spotify and Apple Music streams for the audio, worldwide.
'Common Sense' was a musical revelation, which earned himself a Mercury
Prize nomination, three Brit Award nominations (including British
Breakthrough Act), and an NME award for Best Album. 'Common Sense'
has placed J Hus at the forefront of the UK Music scene.
Following its success, J Hus' stardom sky-rocketed landing him covers of GQ Style, Clash Magazine, Fader, Shortlist, MixMag, ASOS Magazine and many others.
Last year, J Hus played various festivals around the world including Parklife, Fresh Island, Reading & Leeds, Outlook and many more, as well as unleashing his most recent project, 'The Big Spang EP' - which included the blockbuster summer anthem 'Dark Vader'. If previous years are anything to go by, then J Hus is set to continue setting the industry alight with a major summer appearance at this year's Lovebox Festival lined up, an album in the works and some major plans in store!
