Listen To Barry Jhay’s Spiritual New Single, “Mo Le Jo”

an updated rework of a hit you know too well

Since breaking out with last year’s street smash hit, “Aiye”, Barry Jhay’s subsequent singles have solidified the Fuji-pop act as one of the most exciting Afropop prospects. His latest single, “Mo Le Jo” is another gratifying entry into his growing, impressive catalogue.

Over a mid-tempo production of 808 drum kicks, finger snaps and breezy piano keys, Barry delivers a slew of motivational lyrics amplified by his soulful singing, with lines like “things no dey come easy like dat, you gast to work hard to get that mulla” primed to resonate with a wide array of listeners. The hook for “Mo Le Jo” is a verbatim reproduction of Bouqui’s “Molejo”, with Barry contextualising the words to fit the song’s hood-inclined, spiritual tone, imbuing them with affecting melodies.
