      "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 has 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 & Prayer'.

      The release of his gold selling debut album 'Common Sense' earned him the number six spot on the official album chart selling an impressive 90k plus units to date. His single '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' have also racked up over 50 million views and a staggering 78 million plus combined Spotify and Apple Music streams for the audio.

      The accomplishments wouldn't stop there as 'Common Sense' would be nominated for the prestigious 2017 Mercury Prize. J Hus would additionally be nominated for a whopping four MOBO awards & three Brit Awards. If this wasn't enough Hus would be handed several honours including 'Best Album' & 'Best Track' ('Did You See') at the GRM Rated Awards; 'Best Song' at the 2017 MOBO Awards as well as being awarded 'Best Album of 2017' by Link Up TV - all whilst selling out his UK tour (including a sold out show at the O2 Brixton Academy) and rounding off with a European tour at the end of last year.

      If 2017 is anything to go by then J Hus is set for an even bigger year ahead and with him already kicking off this year by receiving 'Best Album' at the NME Awards - J Hus is set to continue setting the industry alight with some major plans in store for the future!
