Cape Town's Keanu Harker releases music video for his debut single, "I Feel It"
I Feel It is the debut single by super-talented Keanu Harker and the official music video has just been released on Friday, 11 June at 9am. Well-known for his electric performances on Mnet’s The Voice SA, Harker now releases his first independent song.
"I Feel It is a very close and personal song to me, and I wrote it during a very crazy time in my life. There were times where I felt that I should just be a cover artist, performing and singing other artist’s songs because my music was not good enough or I felt I wasn't ready yet to step out and release the music that I had created” says Harker.
“But, I just couldn't stop thinking about how right it felt to be doing this. The first line in the song says: Man I can't lie, I can think about nothing else, and that's literally what pushed and Inspired me to write this song. I had to convince myself that I am good enough and I am ready, and that my music will be relatable to those listening.”

Keanu has written and produced several new singles, all earmarked for release later in 2021. “These songs are very special to me. The writing and recording process has been everything I dreamed of” says Keanu. “It's been a long time coming that I have been hesitant about stepping out as a recording artist and this is the perfect song. It is a reminder to me that this feels right. I know it, I believe it, "I FEEL IT”. “
