There are so many ‘Reasons’ to enjoy the brand new single from rising Melbourne-based performer Jordan Astra.
Firstly is that Canadian born Jordan now calls himself an Aussie.
‘Reasons’ also features Melbourne rapper Jalmar, who has Chilean heritage, so it’s a big melting pot of cultures.
It’s a song with instant appeal, fusing pop, R&B and rap and, Jordan informs us, he wrote, produced and engineered it by himself. Big props there.
And it’s got a universal message.
“‘Reasons’ is a song that reflects on the infatuation we feel for someone new, the rush we get when we think about someone who’s caught our attention,” Jordan explains.
“Like most of the songs I write, the hook came to me first and then I began writing my verse and worked collectively on Jalmar’s part to really keep the song cohesive.”
He even directed his own music video… what’s not to love!?
