Words by Emily Shapiro—
The video for “Rain Like Gold” by the Courtney John Project may have been shot in Jamaica but it’ll definitely leave you feeling otherworldly. The super spacey video, featuring singer Courtney John dressed as an astronaut as he roams through a deserted area of Kingston, perfectly matches the song’s tone.
The track is off the aptly titled Future LP from the Courtney John Project, a collaboration between the singer and producer/musician Steven “Lenky” Marsden (of Diwali riddim fame) and producer The Wizard (daughter of Beres Hammond). “Rain Like Gold” definitely speaks to the artistic talents of all three artists involved, and has us looking forward to future releases. Future is available here.
Check it out below and try to spot some of Kingston in the mix. Makes you wonder about that whole landing on the moon conspiracy, no?
