Jack Parow is Never Gonna Grow Up feat. Riky Rick – New music video and single out now

“Never took the time to be a kid back then
Now I’m making up
Never took the time to be a kid back then
I can still remember.”
Lyrics from Never Gonna Grow Up feat. Riky Rick
Jack Parow and his crew on the set of ‘Never Gonna Grow Up’
Jack Parow sings the chorus and the whole song is in English. The song is not on an album and sounds different than Parow’s other tunes. For the first time Parow collaborates with popular hip hop artist, Ricky Rick...
Everything about Never Gonna Grow Up feat. Riky Rick is new.
Jack Parow’s upcoming memoir as told to Theunis Engelbreght, Die ou met die snor by die bar, inspired this song. This will be released in September 2015.
“Theunis started interviewing me for the book towards the end of 2014. We spent hours talking about my childhood and the past. I think this triggered a kinda of nostalgia in me and is partly why I made this track. I wanted to make something that was easy listening, like the pop tracks I digged growing up. A Jackson 5 throwback, but Parow-style.” says Jack Parow.
The music video shows Jack Parow with crew of younsters spreading havoc while having a lekker time, with no intention to grow up.
Directed by Peri van Papendorp from Giant Films.
About Never Gonna Grow Up:
‘’I felt that it was time for a new release. I started rhyming and penciling words down and when I was done I realised that it was all in English. It happened spontaneously and we just started running with the concept, ‘’ says Parow.
The legendary Hunter Kennedy (Fokofpolisiekar and Die Heuwels Fantasties) co-wrote the song and came up with the chorus melody and words.
“It was so catchy and I instantly liked Hunter’s chorus. He proposed that I give a go at singing it and the rest is history. It still sounds funny to hear myself sing, but they convinced me it’s cool. With the addition of Riky Rick on the chorus, I think it is now sounding great,” says Parow.
Next week Parow will be dropping his Limited Edition Debut Platinum Edition Vinyl and full details of his tour with his American chommie, Dirt Nasty, will be announced. But we leave you with this for now:
