Songs have been written about every topic imaginable, but the most popular remains the love song. A romantic at heart, Christian Heath has always had a knack for writing swooning love ballads. His latest release Paradise is no different and perhaps his steamiest track yet.
The song follows previously released hits I’m Yours and No Good for You, which successfully put the singer-songwriter back on the map after a short hiatus, launching his much longed-for solo career.
The father of a little boy, with another one on its way, Christian is a committed and loving husband and parent who would do anything for his family. With Paradise, the Johannesburg-based muso wanted to create something a little more personal, more authentic, that would appeal to the majority of the population through its simplistic yet honest lyrics.
Written together with Howie Combrink and SEVVEN, the track explores the universal theme of love, and is sure to leave you feeling a little giddy.
Christian says, “I initially approached Howie and SEVVEN with just the verse. It was a simple love song but I felt the verse had a lot of potential. The guys jumped onto the bandwagon immediately and within a few hours the song was written and put together. The song is about that perfect person, and how no else matters or can even come close to them in any possible way.”
