We’ve already basically been in tears watching the trailer for forthcoming romantic-drama A Star Is Also A Sun (out 9 August), starring dreamy duo Charles Melton and Yara Shahidi – but don’t forget to keep an eye out for supporting cast member Camrus Johnson, who also has a sun-soaked feel-good song on the soundtrack.
“Chance” is a legit summer banger with an energetic production bolstered by Johnson’s honey vocals. So into it.
Also, don’t miss this exclusive clip from the forthcoming film, which features Johnson showing off his accapella skills, on the New York subway with on-screen mate Charles Melton.
‘“Chance” is an old-school love song about how all I needed was this girl to give me one chance with her and I’d prove we were meant to be together,” explains Johnson. “I wrote the original lyrics when I was 18 or 19 about someone that I thought was just so perfect for me. To this day she’s so great. I never did get that chance though! So now, after rewriting it and recording it years later, I guess you could say ‘Chance’ is my introduction to whoever my soulmate is out there. Hey future boo, I’m CamRus and like big gestures… you cool with that?”
