French- African singer Juliet Ariel has released a South African collaboration remix of her hit single “Wish You Were Here” featuring Uthando hit-maker, DJ and producer Soa Mattrix.

says Juliet Ariel.
“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 (ie. Juliet’s previous track “Summer Luv”).
The collaboration with Laylizzy in the original track, who is best known for his song “Wacko” with King 98 and Nasty C brings a new hip-hop perspective to her previously more tropical house inspired records.

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.
Juliet’s chilled toned vocals are vulnerable yet powerful while Soa Mattrix’s high-tempo amapiano beat brings a true South African feel to the song.
Talking about the single, Juliet said:
“Wish You Were Here” is available through Believe and is the second track from Juliet’s upcoming EP, “Endless summer”, which is expected later this year.
“Summer Luv”, the first track from the EP, was released on July 3rd 2020. It received playlist support from all major DSP’s including Apple Music “Pop Chill”, #1 on Deezer “Chill House”, Amazon Music “Speaking Pop” and Soundcloud “Fresh Pressed UK”.
