UK-Congolese artist Jordan Mackampa gives us a seamless infusion of bossa nova and samba in his new single “Magic” where he touches upon the inexplicable hypnotic effect that someone can have on you. Taken from his upcoming debut record Foreigner, out on March 13, the track is a sketch of Jordan’s knack for blending genres in his own quirky way:

“This is a bossa nova and samba-infused feel good kinda track about when you can’t get someone off your mind. You’ve had one taste and you want more!” shared Jordan
