PARACHUTE is a shout out to the 90s-Dancehall classic, with a new twist and jiggy af dance to go along with it! It flows fluidly from rap verses, to Caribbean slang to a soft buttery chorus, all over a banging dancehall rhythm.
PARACHUTE is the first single off of the upcoming mixtape, GOATLIFE, dropping June 29!
GOATLIFE is the culmination of a 2-year project John Orpheus used to find and develop their unique pan-African sound.Equal parts hip-hop, dancehall, and afrobeats, GOATLIFE finds J.O. and his jiggy af Trinidadian drawl at its best over partner-in-crime Sarah Jane Riegler's Afro rhythms. Filled with dance floor ready jams and sing along anthems, the team has perfected its cocktail of fun, danceability and catchiness
