Alt RnB artist S.t Jaé takes us on an emotional rollercoaster with new single ‘BACK4U’
After establishing himself with a flurry of releases with former band Hendrick Lane in past years, fast-rising Irish alt-rnb artist S.t Jae is now looking to cement his legacy to date with the latest entry to his solo catalogue. Titled “Back4U,” the new single captures the complexities and nuances of modern-day relationships whilst taking us on a rollercoaster of emotions that come with intense passion and love.
S.t Jaé perfectly portrays the power dynamic and struggles of relationships through clever wordplay, witty and playful lyrics. The track offers an intimate look into the artist’s personal experiences as he explores themes of desire, reassurance and exclusivity facetiously highlighting the difficulties of juggling multiple partners and avoiding commitment. Injecting an array of colloquialism and pop culture references to a unique blend of heartfelt R&B and drill production, creating a fresh and nostalgic sound.
Speaking on the inspiration of ‘Back4U’, S.t Jaé commented “You know that feeling when you find your soulmate? It’s like two puzzle pieces that just fit perfectly together. ‘Back4U’ captures that sense of connection and trust – the idea that you can always count on that person to have your back, no matter what. If you’ve ever been in a modern-day relationship, you know that it’s not always easy. There are so many distractions, so many things that can pull you away from each other. I want to show that relationships are not always easy, but that there is a certain thrill and excitement that comes with pursuing someone you’re crazy about, even if it means going through ups and downs, twists and turns”
Adding about the creative process, he explained “The production of “Back4U” was a journey that taught me the importance of staying true to my style and brand, while also being open to collaboration and the input of other professionals. It was a process that required patience, dedication, and a willingness to experiment and try new things. In the end, the final product was a unique and fresh sound that captured the essence of my brand and style.”
