Aluna & Jayda G Premiere New Song “Mine O' Mine” on BBC Radio 1
British singer-songwriter Aluna teamed up with Canadian DJ Jayda G to premiere a new song “Mine O' Mine” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
This marks the first collaboration between Aluna and Jayda G.
It was written and produced by Aluna Francis and Jayda Guy. Co-produced by Josh Lloyd.
Jayda G told Clara Amfo about this collaboration, “We were relating a lot and I think that was just like it was super refreshing honestly, because I know you feel this way. No, but like, you know, when you're collaborating and working without the other producers, it's usually men and they're usually white. So it's really refreshing to be around someone who is just relating on so many levels. And yeah, so it was just like we just got along. We understood each other and yeah, it was very natural.”
Aluna added, “But we were like look, we're gonna have to live without each other because we don't even live in the same city. So it's always something so that we can have a memento for this this time. And we both needed an anthem that would keep us going because it's like, you know, you have two subsets of work to do one is your own personal journey is your career and all of the ups and downs that comes with that and then there's like changing the world not not that much of a big job. 'Let's get a song for that', like.”
- Aluna said of the song, “This track was pure inspiration in the moment, myself and Jayda started with nothing and built the production, melody and lyrics from scratch, just following our thoughts and feelings about having pulled through 2021 and looking forward to 2022.”
She continued, “It really is more of a memento, a snapshot of the beginning of a beautiful new friendship. I just remember laughing and enjoying the realization that neither of us are the cool, calm, collected badasses that we are on stage - when we're in the studio we're just a couple of goofballs that love nerding out on beats and wordplay.”
