The Ghanaian music scene has a new force to be reckoned with in the person of Jay Aura. He reintroduces his already-released debut singles, She Loves My Aura and Fall For You featuring fellow artiste Melly Mingo. With a unique blend of Afrobeats and Hip-hop, Jay Aura is ready to change the Afrobeats game.

Jay Aura's music, with relatable lyrics and a fusion of different genres, is not just about entertainment but also carries a message. His hit singles She Loves My Aura, featuring a sample of one of Jay Aura's favourite artistes, Ofori Amponsah, and Fall For You featuring Melly Mingo, showcases his undeniable talent and versatility as an artiste.
She Loves My Aura, which pays homage to Ofori Amponsah with a sample of his hit song, blends the traditional afrobeat rhythms with a modern hip-hop vibe, creating a catchy and upbeat track that will have you dancing; while Fall For You is a fusion of Afrobeats and Hip-hop, with a soulful and mellow vibe, creating a love story that will resonate with listeners.
With performances at legendary venues such as Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater and Play Station Theater in the United States, Jay Aura has also brought his talents to Ghana, performing at Afrochella in December of 2018, where he performed his hit singles Ghana and Questions and has been nominated 2 times for the Ghana Music Awards held in the USA, alongside being cosigned to PJ KEV and the founders of Afrochella.
Jay Aura recently completed his first freshman project AURA, which contained two songs on both Power 105 and Hot 97 radio stations.
