Jovan Landry’s New Single And Why She Might Be The Next Best Artist To Come Out Of Chicago
Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist Jovan Landry just dropped her first public instrumental release entitled “Give U My Love”. The track is a seamless fusion of Hip-Hop and Soul with infectious harmonies tied in to create the feel good vibes associated with the season of love. Drawing inspiration from West Coast G-Funk melodies and an unforgettable bassline with talkbox vocal samples, Jovan has successfully created a love song for her supporters & the fans that have been with her since day one.
Not one to limit her ability to produce new and unique content, this first ever instrumental release proves to lay a solid foundation for more to come. The track combines old school feels with new age low-fi tones to create a laid back, sensuous mood to vibe to. With hints of R&B tied in, you can’t go wrong with this Valentines Day-inspired jam. “Give U My Love” precedes the full length Synergy album where Jovan received a WeWork Creator Award to produce the first all-women produced & performed hip hop album Synergy. With this, she invited over 50 Chicago-based artists to collaborate with one another in the male-dominated industries in music and media. You can watch Synergy perform “Synergy Cypher Pt. 2” on ABC’s Windy City LIVE here.
Jovan coins herself 1/3 filmmaker, 1/3 photographer & 1/3 emcee. Establishing her passion for the arts at an early age, she expresses creativity through music production, lyricism, film and photography. In the span of a decade, Jovan Landry has self-released five projects, taught numerous workshops, and has performed throughout the U.S and internationally. Her accomplishments span over a decade with her earning the Nadine Sterk scholarship as well as the Presidential scholarship at her alma mater – Columbia College Chicago. Since then she’s placed 1st at TWZ Radio’s “She Got Bars” event. She was the Audience Favorite at the 2014 Columbia’s Got Talent contest and most recently, the recipient of the WeWork Creator Awards grant. Having also been included in NPR’s Hip Hop and R&B Artists to Watch in 2019, it’s clear Jovan has built a foundation that’s meant to springboard her to new heights.
Her ambition and genuine drive to create authentic, humanized content is simply unmatched. A big fish in a small pond, it’s clear that Jovan is on the verge of new milestones. The music industry (especially Hip Hop) is primarily male-dominated, so for a female-identifying individual to persevere through the challenges that come with a being a public figure and prolific artist is not only impressive but encouraging to other female and/or non-binary individuals looking to do the same thing.Tweet
