Raise your hand if you’ve ever swiped someone’s hoodie or had a hoodie disappear. Whether you raided someone’s sweatshirts at wintertime party or gifted your most comfy pullover to bae, most of us have been associated with some kind of hoodie transaction. Our next addition to the site, JAYO, dissects the feelings that can attach themselves to a hoodie when it changes hands in his buoyant indie R&B track, “HOODIE.”
If the name, JAYO, is familiar to you, you might know him from TikTok. The LA-based prospect has racked up 1.6 million followers for his comedic posts, but this new track shows us his talents expand much further than some hilarious 30 second videos. Some glazed synths and a plucking bass line set the scene for the whispy but assured vocals in this irresistible new bop.
