Toronto based recording artist JCT has dropped a brand-new single called Stella Ella Ola bringing fans young and old alike back to their childhood days playing outside in the school yards. And not only that, but he’s also dropped gorgeous visuals to accompany the single with the release of the music video.
The new single is sure to get people reminiscing about their childhood days and shows a ton of promise. We reached out to JCT for some words on what inspired the track and here’s what he had to say.
“I’ve had this itch to scratch with Stella Ella Ola for some time now and earlier this year I finally had a little time to sit down in the studio and mess around with some ideas. Stella Ella Ola was something we all remember and did as kids so I wanted to remix it in a creative way that would resonate with everyone regardless of their age.
Working in tandem with a couple of my other producers, we did a great job on the composition of the music. Once I had that, I hired a female vocalist to help me double up the chorus with her amazing voice, and the rest came easily.
We finished this track in like a week and I kept things quiet for a few months while we started planning to shoot the music video ASAP. I wanted to drop visuals at the same time so there was no rush for me on releasing this one. Once we had all the locations scouted and picked, we moved quickly to shoot the footage we needed.
It was so well planned and executed, we shot the entire video in under 4 hours. My team did an amazing job from start to finish and I’m thrilled with the track and music video! This track was a lot of fun and brings back so many memories for me.”
JCT has shown that he’s extremely creative when it comes to his music and vision. On every single one of his releases so far, all of them vary in style, genre, and target audience. He’s dabbled with hip hop, reggaeton, dance, and even a cross language track in both Portuguese and English called Minha Gente that incorporates Reggaeton as well.
So far, he’s illustrated that he isn’t afraid to try new things and push boundaries with his music.
“I like to be different. If I have to make music that sounds like anyone else, I have no interest in doing this. I want my music to stand out like a sore thumb. When you hear it or see it, you’ll know its me. Some people will love it, and others will hate it. It’s all good either way. I don’t like everything I hear or see either.”
It’s this kind of attitude that has him poised to continue expressing his creativity in a unique way that is sure to produce even more quality music in the near future.
Stella Ella Ola is available for downloading and streaming on all major digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Amazon Music, and more.
