DEF JAM PHILIPPINES’ NEW ARTIST J-NINE RELEASES FIRST SINGLE ‘GG’ WITH KING PROMDI
Just before the year comes to an end, Def Jam Philippines have once again uncovered a once-hidden gem that might just be the label’s next hitmaker. Newcomer, J-Nine is ready to take over with her first single, "GG".
Def Jam Philippines is all about giving breaks to talented and deserving artists. Just before the year comes to an end, they have once again uncovered a once-hidden gem that might just be the label’s next hitmaker. J-Nine is ready to take over countless playlists with her first single, “GG”.
The song is a collaboration with Def Jam Philippines signed artist King Promdi of VVS Collective. King Promdi came up with a head-bopping beat, and penned the lyrics, then J-Nine chipped in with the harmony. This serves as her first formal record in a studio. J-Nine then proudly shares that it only took a couple of hours for them to complete the song—recording included!
As its name suggests, “GG” is for the gamers—for those who spend hours on end trying to become an unbeatable glorious mythical conqueror for some mobile or computer game. Along with non-stop gaming comes the tendency to ignore and take for granted loved ones and other life priorities. J-Nine and King Promdi turned into music what countless people have in mind—”Bakit puro laro na lang?”
Born Janine Castillo, J-Nine was accidentally “discovered” by Def Jam Philippines’ artists who happened to see the charming 20-year old Entrepreneurship sophomore. During some jamming sessions after wrapping up the music video shoot for ‘KABADO’, it didn’t take long for them to realize that J-Nine had what it takes to become an artist herself. A true music lover, she has been doing a lot of covers on social media for quite some time now. And now, she was given the opportunity to collaborate with one of the label’s very first signed talents in the country, King Promdi.
