J Hus has claimed that his Mercury-nominated debut album represents how ‘genre doesn’t exist any more’ in 2017. Watch our video interview above.

Speaking at the unveiling of the 2017 Mercury Music Prize shortlisted albums, where he was nominated for his acclaimed debut ‘Common Sense‘, J Hus said that he doesn’t believe there are any boundaries are relevant in the current musical climate.

“The album is so diverse,” J Hus told NME. “To me now, I don’t really categorise music – I see music as all one. That’s what my album represents, because there are so many different sounds. In 2017, there are no boundaries, there are no categories, music is just one.”

When asked about his fellow nominees, J Hus replied: “It’s amazing. If I don’t win, I keep saying to everyone that I want Stormzy to win. He’s my close friend so I’m really supporting him hard.”
