The South African artist has gone from a teenage sensation, making trap beats that once dubbed him the “South African Martin Garrix” by The Times to become the face of a new generation of South African
producers who are unafraid to embrace their roots and champion their home nation along with the continent as whole.

As music has flowed, unrestricted through the digital world, Jaydon has set ought to celebrate and unite different sounds from around the world, bringing together exciting collaborations, twisting international flavors with his Afrobeats to prove to the world that Africa is here to stay on a global scale. This mission has seen Jaydon work with a slew of acts from around
the world that include his sessions out of London with Britain’s hard-hitting and unapologetic MC Queen Millz, which brought to life his next single “tempted.”

“Creating this record felt like painting an idea, mixing amapiano, deep house, and atmospheric textures. Each beat and melody carries emotion, highlighting syncopation, African rhythm and melody with progression. I also accomplished my
goal of bringing international flavors to Amapiano which Queen Millz became “the cherry on top” and unleashed a mesmerizing vocal that perfectly balanced the sound.”
– Jaydon Lewis
