Rising pop-star from Toronto Janet Tung, has been shredding on the guitar since she was a kid.

The buzz about her stunning debut single, One More Time, caught everyone’s attention and resulted in her being published by ROBA music.

The self-thought, fresh artist is back with an incredible cover of Anne-Marie‘s smash hit 2002. Janet Tung’s skilful blend of pop and EDM makes for a truly captivating sound.

For this cover Tung went back to her roots, all thanks to Magic Records. The original track was enhanced with a catchy dance beat and an exciting burst of energy by collaborating with producer Le Bober.

She gives us a lowdown on the creative process behind it and even dives into the song’s lyrics: “Producer Le Bober truly has an innate skill to create chill covers for Magic Records. This time he connected with me through an A&R (Amal Simakin) to lay down a refresh of one of Anne-Marie’s hits ‘2002’ crafting a nostalgic atmosphere, perfect for a summer night. The vocals for this song was humbly recorded in my bedroom closet, but Le Bobers talented producing, mixing & mastering skills brought this cover to life!”

Tung continues: “‘2002’ is a nostalgic pop song. The track evokes the bittersweet nature of reminiscing about a past relationship, sentimental feelings of my childhood, creating a sense of familiarity and relatability. “Dancing on the hood in the middle of the woods of an old mustang, where we sang” reminds me of last summer when I first graduated high school, going to the cottage with my friends and just living life to the fullest, those are the days I would give up anything in the world to go back in time and experience it again.”

Janet Tung‘s journey began when she uploaded amazing song covers on YouTube. In no time, her natural talent caught the attention of a dedicated fan base!

She effortlessly creates a hot mix of electronic and dance-pop sounds, drawing inspiration from artists like Shy Martin, Taylor Swift, and Astrid S.
