Londonite Jay Prince often has positive vibes rampant in his music, which he says comes from finding a way to cope with darkness while recording. That’s evident on “AfroPhunk” and his Beautiful Mercy project from last year, and it translates to his new single “Father, Father.”
The song will land on his Smile Good mixtape.
“Father, Father” is openly dedicated to God, who Prince says he owes everything and then some. And that revert back to the place of darkness. Music helps him escape it, but his faith is what helps his realize that in the first place
“Smile Good is about having a back-bone and growing through all of your experiences in life,” Prince told Pigeons & Planes, who premiered the single online after it played on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. “I really emphasize growing because there were times prior to this project being recorded that I often found myself in darkness—growing as a musician, struggling to trust people, whilst still finding the love for making music.”
Smile Good will arrive Friday, and you can listen to “Father, Father” below.
Here’s the artwork for the project.
