Despite hailing from Atlanta, I first came across Jaye Newton thanks to a local show that displayed notable acts from the Rhode Island & Atlanta. His performance stood as one of my favorites and I looked forward to hearing more from him.
Two months later, the Atlanta native returns with his second full-length project in Just Pray For Me. Thirteen songs deep, the project calls on a number of underground Atlanta acts, highlighting the city’s continued ability to produce new and diverse talent.
Despite its R&B/Soul label, JPFM sees Jaye dipping well into the hip-hop realm (see “Whole Life Crazy”). Well-rounded in its entirety, the project is quite the output – one sure to advance his career.
Hit play on the project below.
