JY BLY STIL
“People are so vocal about everything these days, especially on the internet. Everyone has got
something to say and this song is about telling those people to shut their holes and start dancing.” – Van Pletzen
South Africa’s favourite satirical duo, Van Pletzen, is back with a brand new kak lekke single, ‘JY BLY STIL’ featuring Jack Parow. With the same grootness, respect and liefde as their previous offering, ‘Awaken The Legehness’ earlier this year, Van Pletzen started working on ‘JY BLY STIL’ a few months ago while writing and recording their new album. They started playing it live and noticed people were vibing to it and thought ‘ag let’s drop it as a single, man’. They just knew that the song needed a nice thick slice of Parow! No one brings Parow like Parow and tthey figured he would be great at tuning people to bly stil.
“People are so vocal about everything these days. Everyone has got something to say and this song is about telling those people to shut their holes and start dancing. Because praating on the internet is not gonna do anything, but dancing is going to make you sweat and realise things. If you have to speak, then speak about liefde and mooi things or get out of our gesig.” says Van Pletzen.
About the video
The video was shot by the duo’s friend and frequent collaborator PJ Kotze, who also did the music videos for ‘Zaberfluten’, ‘Goud’, ‘Eiland Styl’ and ‘Awaken The Legehness’. ‘JY BLY STIL’ is a serious banger that will make you want to move and comb your own dans hare. This one is set to become a groot summer anthem.
Peach has always wanted to do a classic 90s / 2000s-style dancing video, and he shared his dream with Nax and PJ and then they let their synergy do it’s thing from there. Nax insisted on going groot by playing his majestic axe in the video, which is actually an extremely rare guitar with some of the fattest tone in the world! The shoot took one day but Peach practiced his dancing the day before to make sure he klaps it groot and tight.
Fans can look forward to Nax playing his special mystical guitar, Van Pletzen dancing and Parow reading a Loslyf while taking a kak. If you don’t identify with ‘JY BLY STIL’, then you are either lying or too bang to have a good time.
