Jordan Mackampa’s ‘Magic’ is the love-drunk sing and dance along moment that we’ve all been searching for. As with all the songs from Mackampa’s forthcoming album, ‘Magic’ embraces musical styles beyond his former singer-songwriter repertoire. And so, ‘Magic’ is an instant lift thanks to those moreish swathes of boss nova and samba rhythms, as well as the Congolese-British artist’s well-rounded soul vocals. This is a song for celebration; this is a song for love. Produced by Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini). ‘Magic’, precedes the release of Jordan’s debut album ‘Foreigner’ on 13th March 2020
Speaking on the track, Jordan quotes: “This is a bossa nova/samba/ infused feel good kinda track about when you can’t get someone off your mind. You’ve had one taste and you want more!”
Additional Info: Following a sold out Village Underground show and multiple sold out European dates including Berlin, Amsterdam and Hamburg in 2019, Jordan has announced a mammoth 2020 tour North America/UK/EU tour including Scala, London and SXSW.
