For true R&B enthusiasts, it comes as no shock that many of our favorite songs from different artists, have been written by others. Working behind the scenes are several talented individuals, who pour their heart and soul into creating music that has the power to make a difference. While some of these songwriters may prefer remaining unnamed, there are many who take this as an opportunity to grow their expertise and experience, looking for the perfect moment to make it big on their own. Today, we introduce Jada Simone, who fits the bill for the latter and has already wowed fans across the globe with her latest single, “Lies Cry”.
But before we get to know more about her work as an artist, we must first familiarize ourselves with who Jada Simone really is. Hailing from Savannah, Georgia, Jada Simone is a 21-year-old singer and songwriter, who has already established her foothold in the music industry. Jada Simone showed interest in music from as young as 4 years old, when she would spend a lot of time singing. Over the years, this talent was only further encouraged, and Jada Simone soon came to the realization that it would be in her best interest to turn her passion into her profession. At 16, Jada Simone found online fame in the form of her Instagram videos, which portrayed her singing covers of popular songs. With the spotlight now on her, Jada Simone went on to sign quite a few record deals as of 2019, and made several connections which would help her bring her childhood dreams into actuality. By the time she was 20, Jada Simone had already contributed over 300 songs to the industry, and had managed to even work for Grammy nominated artists.
An ambitious sort, Jada Simone chose to not stop here and was eager to work harder to get her worth truly recognized. So, she got in touch with some of the best in the industry, and thus “Lies Cry” came to be. “Lies Cry” features the true voice and style of Jada Simone, and can be a delight to those who wish to know Jada Simone in her element. The cover art is also quite symbolic of the message carried by the melody; the knives represent how sometimes the people closest to you can be the one to betray you, and thus stab you with a knife when your back is turned.
