Subtle world-music vibes lead with a quirky riff alongside heavy, bass-led hip hop rhythms as Jona Da King offers up a contemporary anthem of weight and high-energy.
Gualla is the second single of the month from Jona Da King, showcasing his fast-bars and clear sense of identity in both the visual performance and the tone.
Weave in some modern references and more traits of character throughout the mix, and Gualla works its magic with ease – blending the sound of the moment with a defiant edge of personality that stands tall throughout his music.
Prior to the release of Gualla, Joke hit the scene and mixed things up for its intensity in concept and sound.
Another quirky riff gives the track a recognisable air, and underneath this the bars feel angsty yet loaded with confidence and softly clever wordplay to elevate the depiction of skill.
Jona Da King underlines a certain refreshing air of self-awareness at the same time as proving faultlessly on form throughout his delivery. The skill is there, the self-belief, the leadership strength, and within this is a thread of realness – the concept of being taken for a joke. These two qualities work well together in building a connection with fans.
It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes him in the coming months.
