Lusion is banking his hopes on his latest single, Time, which will be released in June on the Assignment rhythm project for the Starzplus Music label.
“I wrote that song based on an encounter with the police and my experience in jail,” said the artiste, whose real name is Adrian Allen.
Lusion’s run-in with the long arm of the law is not something he wants to repeat.
“It is one of my most uncomfortable experiences. It’s not something I’d like to repeat, but like I said, ‘I prefer to do the time,’ “ he said.
A video for Time will also be released in June.
This song is a far way from the gospel covers he sang in his youth.
“While I sang gospel, it was mostly covers. However, when I write it was always these kind of song. I thought I was stifling me by only doing covers and decided to put me...what I write...how I feel out there,” said Lusion.
Hailing from Great River/Hopewell district in Hanover, Lusion first showed his talent at nine at church. He wowed the community and would often accompany his mother, a deaconess, as she performed at different churches and functions islandwide. At 12, he executed his first solo appearance at a church event singing gospel.
After completing Herbert Morrison Technical High School, he decided to pursue music professionally.
His other songs include Big Dreams, Gunman, Never Feel Like, and One Step.
