Jada Lee – ‘Star67’

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania indie singer songwriter Jada Lee is shaking things up with her new single, ‘Star67’. The pop song is embued with a whole lot of soul, thanks to the 22 year old Jada’s sassy vocals and the lo-fi production.

Jada Lee Dale showed a great interest in music from a very young age. Growing up in church and being a part of All-Shore and All-State choirs in middle and high school, she credits her upbringing for her voice, with its soulful, R&B feel. Jada participated in Rock And Roll Revival while in high school, local productions which included a live band, dancers, and background singers. It was these shows which strengthened her desire to become a recording artist, and upon graduating high school, she enrolled in Temple University, where she learned to engineer her own music. While there she also co-hosted an iHeart Radio college radio show, and followed this up with a YouTube channel in 2014, after attending a programme sponsored by the University.

Working on her music in her free time, Jada decided in 2016 to start focusing on her own potential. She opened for Grammy nominated artist, Jazmine Sullivan at a Gala event, and that motivated her to continue pursuing her musical career. Releasing her debut EP in 2017, she followed this up with another, and then numerous singles.

‘Star67’ is a song about finding out a lover has been cheating – and not only that, she’s found out she’s the other woman in the relationship. It’s a hard thing to deal with, as she’s got morals and doesn’t like being lied to by someone she thought was her man. Her singing style is almost rap in that the lyrics are free-flowing, stream of consciousness in format. With a smooth, relaxed, sultry vibe to her vocals, we feel the full emotion of her unhappiness with the situation.
