Meet Julanie J: South Africa’s New Pop Princess

There’s a new kid on the block. 21-year-old Julanie J has just inked a brand-new record deal with Warner Music South Africa and today, she drops her brand-new single ‘Dalk Is Ek’. Julanie has been writing and making music for as long as she can remember. She wrote her first song at the age of four and her debut album ‘Spirit Breakout’, released in 2015 reached the iTunes Top 30 on release. She was also nominated for a Mzansi Christian Award in 2016. Now, she’s ready to embark on a new era.

“I enjoy writing and singing. It’s my way of conveying my feelings and observations. I believe that this song is more than just a catchy tune and hope that it will resonate with people,” Julanie says on her new single.

The themes of her songs are mostly introspective. Julanie explains, “It is only human to sometimes get stuck in the past or feel overwhelmed by our problems. These perspectives keep us captive and then we forget who we really are behind all of that. We should constantly ask ourselves – Who am I am and what do I really want? – I am moved by people`s stories. I enjoy writing because I pay close attention to things. I try to be as observant as possible. There is so much going on around us and if we start noticing the little things, life becomes much more interesting.”
