Jay’D Willis’ Debut RnB Single Will Have You Dancing From ‘Night Til Morning’

Debuting strongly with his single, ‘Night Til Morning’, Jamaica’s Jay’D Willis pulls out all the stops, bringing a late-90s/early 2000s groove to the party. You’ll be dancing “night til morning” when you play this song!

Inspired by the likes of Sean Paul, Wayne Wonder, and Ja Rule’s chart domination period, Jay’D has a hit on his hands, and one that is filled to the brim with a combination of 90s nostalgia and an authentic Caribbean feel. Accompanied by a music video which in turn has been inspired by the colour palette of the clip for Beenie Man’s ‘Gal Dem Sugar’, he also pays homage with the feel of the video altogether. You can watch the video for ‘Night Til Morning’ below:

Jayden Willis began making music from an early age, starting with GarageBand at the age of 7. Even then he knew what he wanted, he realised it wasn’t up to the standards he set for himself. By the time he was 15 he had started recording music properly, and went from “Jayden” to the stage name of “Jay’D”, adopted from the pet name his grandmother gave him.

‘Night Til Morning’ clearly pays homage to the Jamaican stylings, and has that sweet tropical sound common to the music that comes out of that country. Soft lead vocals, with ethereal backing vocals, are laid on a deceptively simple instrumental mix, which primarily focuses on a guitar rhythm, but also brings in gentle percussive elements, rounding out the mix. At just over 3 minutes long, ‘Night Til Morning’ has the power to draw listeners in and leave them wanting for more. Until Jay’D Willis releases his next single, all we can do is just hit “replay”.

‘Night Til Morning’ is out now and available to stream and download here. Find out more about Jay’D Willis and his music online on InstagramFacebook, Twitter, TikTok, Spotify, and Apple Music.
