In the rough and tumble world of the music industry, Courtney John continues to shine and make his own luck by putting out consistently good music while expanding the boundaries of his creativity. The reggae singer/songwriter’s 2009 hit single “Lucky Man” was recently picked up by Unilever’s Axe Lynx for the brand’s summer holiday campaign, and so far it has been making a big impression on television, cable and the web. According to Courtney John, the use of the song to lead this campaign is a clear indication that good music will always prevail.

“This ad will remind people that reggae can be used in campaigns that are big and successful. It also means a lot, not only for me, but also other artists within this genre. It proves that to garner these kind of opportunities, the music has to be good,” he told Pree Jamaica.

He explained that the inspiration for the song came from just listening to the original track. When he first heard it, he found himself saying, “So you tell me that I’m a Lucky Man and you’re so right, yes you’re so right.” The song developed from there and he co-wrote the rest of it with his writing partner Nicole Sharpe.

There’s a lot going on for Courtney John at the moment. His song “Louder” on The Wizard’s Floor It Riddim is enjoying frequent spins on the weekly television series “In The Dance” and he recently appeared on TVJ’s Smile Jamaica morning programme. He also performed at the National Stadium for the Jamaica 2011 Grand Gala and his hit tune “Hey Jamaica”, a collabo with Mr. Lexx, continues to get love on radio.

He’s currently working on a new album, and fans of his music can catch him live at Plug N’ Play on August 19, at the Jonkanoo Lounge, Wyndham Hotel, New Kingston at 10:30pm.
