REVEALS NEW SINGLE
LISTEN HERE: smarturl.it/JAJABUCaroline
October 12th, 2017 – Singapore – Fresh off his Kitsune Hot Stream feature, JAJA BU makes a stellar impression with the reveal of his new single, “Caroline”, a shape shifting, Alt R&B track showcasing inventive production and smooth vocals. The song is available now here: smarturl.it/JAJABUCaroline
Speaking on the track, JAJA BU states, “when I first started writing this song, I always wanted it to be my version of “Sara Smile” by Hall and Oates with an RnB undertone. This song definitely takes an interesting musical journey for me, and I wanted the ending to feel almost dream-like. It’s mostly about this persons fantasy of being with someone (Caroline) and imagining this amazing time with them, but the reality of it being way darker and less connected then he sees it. I guess part of the initial inspiration, was me visiting this strip club in Atlantic city when I was younger. I remember it being the first time I’d been somewhere like that, I think I was 17 at the time. There was this one girl, I won’t admit that I remember her stage name, ok it was “Wicked Haute”, also her MySpace name. She was talking to me a lot and dancing, and I remember thinking, wow I think she’s actually into me haha, for real.
Anyway, she wasn’t, but I always wanted to write this song stemming from that experience.”
Raised in New Jersey but now LA-based, the track follows JAJA BU’s tastemaker favourite, “Sweetness”, and further goes to illustrate the potential of this newcomer.
