In a musical world where playing it safe is most artists’ default position, Jerusha has always been defiant individual. With a long and successful journey in the South African music Industry, she returns after a long break with her first new material in 6 years.
Hot off the success of her previous SAMA Nominated ‘Best Pop Album’ ‘Jerushalem’, Jerusha returns with a powerful new single that not only aims to catapult her straight back into the charts but also to spread a powerful message about a controversial topic that she feels very strongly about.
The single ‘Blesser’ was recorded in Cape Town with Leaveil Eaton from Brotherhood Productions, otherwise known as “Vally”.
When asked exactly what ‘BLESSER’ is about and what it means to Jerusha, she notes, “A “blesser” is a South African colloquialism for what many western societies refer to as a “sugar-daddy”. It is used to describe a situation where an affluent or wealthy older man “keeps” a younger women as an intimate companion, but not necessarily as an equal partner, more for sexual favors”.
With the release of BLESSER, Jerusha hopes to convey a strong message to women – one of strength, courage, and perseverance. “I have tried to embellish, encourage and cherish the self-worth of a woman. I also hope it strikes a chord with the men, to remind them that there are all kinds of women in this world, both weak and strong”.
‘BLESSER’ is taken off Jerusha’s forthcoming album due for release 2017. An amazing addition to the original mix is a brand new Mikey Gallagher remix to ‘Blesser’.
