JayQ The Legend writes fiercely creative music that fuses the worlds of hip-hop, afro-beat, dancehall and pop, drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as Bruno Mars, Bob Marley and Madonna to craft a fresh sound that’s turned the heads of Grammy-winning producers. His debut EP, “JayQ 4U”, features production from OBA and celebrated hit-maker SOKO7, who previously worked on Beyoncé’s worldwide smash hit “Drunk In Love”.
“Body Talk (Remix)” is an explosive new track from a genre-bending artist ready to share his raw talent with the world. Following May 2019’s “Body Talk”, a blinding success of a debut single that’s since racked up over 2.5m views on YouTube and entered the Music Week Club Charts.
This latest release sees JayQ enlist Jamaican dancehall queen HoodCelebrityy– a rising star who’s been featured in Rolling Stone, The FADER and The New Yorker – for an absolutely bumping remix that’ll undoubtedly set dancefloors on fire across the globe throughout 2019.
“I want to sing to men and women all over the world about the truth of what we all fight for. It’s pure passion.”
Inspired by “the tension between men and women caused by love”, “Body Talk (Remix)” is a club-ready, uptempo track with hidden depths, drawing from JayQ’s inner sensuality and romanticism as he opens up confidently about sensitive subjects, injecting pure passion into his lyricism and straight fire into his beats. One of America’s most promising new artists, JayQ breaks down walls between genres and genders, writing powerful lyrics that resonate on a level that’s both musical and personal.
