Stream the new EP “Antidote” from Jay Watts – https://lnk.to/jay-watts-antidote
“Antidote” was led by the lead single, “Numb”, which was written by Jacques Watkins and produced by IKXNNX and Reefa. “Numb”is one of those songs that the moment I heard the beat, I knew I had to record this. I really wanted to have a conversation with myself on this song,” mentions Jay Watts. “This is like having your own therapy session,” he adds with a chuckle.
The second single release from “Antidote” was “Steps” and it was written by Jay Watts and produced by Pio. “The laid back and mid-tempo was inspired by me listening to a few records from the 70’s and I simply wanted to bring that call-to-action type of vibe back into today’s music space. Its a familiar vibe that we all can relate to,” mentions Jay Watts.
A few other highlights from the EP includes the smash, “Fireworks”. “When I first heard the beat in the studio. I freestyled all of the melodies in one take then I went on a drive playing the song repeatedly. It was a natural feeling and vibe for me. The words just came to me.” Then you have the in-your-face, “FVCK BOY”. “This record means a lot to me as I feel that it’s a song that is needed right now. I made this type of song as a response to some of the female R&B songs of the past few years. I wanted to tell the other side of the story as to why this person may have “hate for you” in the name of love,” he adds.
