Rapper SAYNT JAYSN was born in Toronto but spent his formative years in Bermuda, resulting in a feeling of “otherness” because of the difference of his two homes. This however proved a fertile foundation for his music, opening up his self-expression and flow, much to the admiration of his fans. He’s mostly kept to the underground scene in Toronto, but every song he’s released has shone like a diamond, while stinging like an acid burn. In his new single, ‘Take You Home’, the lead track from his upcoming album, ‘It’s Okay To Be Happy Again’, SAYNT JAYSN explores the power of love, alongside fellow Canadian, the powerhouse vocalist, Jônelle.
‘Take You Home’ examines the glory and obsession, conflict and warmth to be found in love, and rather than just simply being another love song, it serves as a revelation of the true, full picture of love.
Produced by Dwight Miller, of Big Nickel Productions, who cites Hans Zimmer as an influence, the track’s sound design displays a unique sensitivity to the equally carefully crafted lyrics of SAYNT JAYSN. The music video, also directed by Miller, follows SAYNT JAYSN and Jônelle as they traverse different tones and perspectives on love, from genuine passion to laughable infatuation, each stage of love is represented by way of clever usage of abrupt cuts, video effects, and animation.
