Even though he is based in Texas, singer John-Marc Lucid has always been a supporter of reggae and dancehall music. So, determined to make that connection to Jamaican music, he enlisted singjay Fyah Sthar for one of his latest single, Judas .

Lucid recently released the videos for Judas and the dancehall-infused Muy Bonita.

Judas is produced by Jamaica-based Slik Rrymez, while Muy Bonita is produced by Juan Yanez.

Both videos were shot on location in Texas.

The singer explained the storyline behind Muy Bonita, which he directed.

The video basically portrays a model posing and flaunting as the song suggests. So basically, the song is saying you've got it so why don't you flaunt it,” he said.

He also spoke about Judas.

“My friend was telling me how disturbed he was by a former band member who was disloyal and he referred to him as Judas. I found it funny but appropriate. We refer to these shady, disloyal 'friends' as Judas,” said Lucid.

'The song itself was inspired by a couple of incidents, one of which involved a long-time close friend, who is also a musical partner, that crossed me and flexed truly disloyal. So, instead of just feeling down about it, I ended up writing my first verse for Judas,” he continued.

John-Marc Lucid's other releases include Revolution with Fantan Mojah; Believe It, featuring Turbulence; and Mamacita.
