A “commonesque” take on strings of love interest in the rapper’s life.
In She’s Gone Jay Tat sampled Common’s I used to Love her with boundless energy. An excellent exercise of musical harmony between musician/producer; H.TEE’s distinct and signature beat loops producing. With a hook so original and fresh that makes his solo flow tuneful and , His approach on the hook sees him meandering two styles with the ease of a veteran.
Lyrically, Jay-Tat was at metaphorical level not seen in most Naija rappers. He is not sticking with the formula; rather he sticks out his neck and he’s ready to explore. His ability to write witty lines and deliver faultless vocal brings the perfect synergy of pop and hip hop in a wonderful fusion. Enjoy the wonderfully fresh and calming sound of Jay Tat. Enjoy!
