African Mermaid, Juliet Ariel Makes Waves In ‘Wish You Were Here’ Remix

unnamed 27 400x500 - African Mermaid, Juliet Ariel Makes Waves In 'Wish You Were Here' Remix

Off the success of “Wish You Were Here”, multinational songstress and producer Juliet Ariel releases the remix featuring Nigerian producer Burssbrain who’s previously with superstars such as Tiwa Savage, Rema and Alternative artist Reiann. Juliet, born in D.R Congo of African and Portuguese descent employs her diversity in this remix. The single was originally produced by Juliet in Sydney, Australia where she is currently based and has crossed borders starting with a feature from Mozambican rapper Laylizzy, a remix from Soa Mattrix a South African Amapiano producer.

“Wish You Were Here” reads like a greeting on a postcard. It is an emotional Afro-Latin club ballad about a long-distance relationship’s survival after the end of a summer love romance. Narrating the story of a dazed and confused lover, Juliet Ariel’s pitiful and suave voice blends into the finely chopped Burssbrain beats that remain imprinted. Putting her sincerity forward, the song radiates an R&B and pop electronic mood with Reiann gracing the song with her high pitched vocals. Creating music that bridges genres, crosses borders and cultures as the reflection of a new multicultural generation, the two artists breathe off girl power in this collaborative remix as they meticulously complement each other. The track is defined by a mesmerising mix of rhythm and emotion. Lo-fi effects on the drums and instruments bring intensity and suspense throughout the song. The tone of the song is vulnerable yet powerful.

“Feelings are like waves, they come and go, meaning you can’t expect a good thing to last forever. When I wrote “Wish You Were Here” I wanted to express how I felt about the end of something great. Turning my fear of loss into a powerful song was a way for me to move on and look back and smile.” – Juliet Ariel
