Antonio Patrick Johnson or, as he is more commonly known, ‘Jus D’, is a Barbadian singer, songwriter and producer. Beginning his musical career as writer and producer for soca artist Rupee, he later made the leap and began performing himself; Jus D’s 2020 Crop Over release, Touch, features on VP Records’ Soca Gold 2020.

We asked Jus D some questions about his collaboration with VP, and what else he’s been up to.

How did the Soca Gold 2020 link up come about?
I actually got a call from Edwin, who’s part of VP Records. I was on Soca Gold 2019, and he wanted something brand new and unreleased for 2020. I sent him two tracks, and Touch was the one they wanted.

Tell us a little more about that track; what’s it all about?
Touch is a mixture of classic soca and the modern style. My team and I wanted to create a nice, infectious blend that the original soca lovers would appreciate, as well as the new ones. It’s basically about a women who wants a man to touch her.

What does it mean to have your track on the Soca Gold 2020 album?
It’s a great achievement. Soca Gold has been around for a while, and with so many artists releasing music the fact that Touch is the lead single is a huge deal.

Do you make music to coincide with Crop Over? If so, do you intend to release any more music?
I actually make all types of music. I recently released an album called Other Side, which showcases a different side of me. I definitely release music for Cropover as well, as that’s tradition, but I do this for a living so it’s music all year round.

This year the world came to a standstill. How has it affected you, and what have you been doing during the lockdown?
I’ve had to cancel flights, shows, all sorts, I had to restructure and become more innovative. I’ve released music throughout this time, and tried to learn new stuff that would benefit me.
