Upcoming singer and songwriter Joby Jay today (March 17) released the first single
off her upcoming Love Levels EP.

According to a release, the track, Bare, as its name suggests, is an ode to the rawest form of love and is delivered in an eclectic blend of jazz, reggae, and soul, backed by her vocals.

Bare is co-written with Mario Spencer and produced by Island.WAV (credited with their work on tracks by Rytikal, Charly Black, Popcaan, and more).

It is being touted as the ‘first taste’ of Joby’s highly anticipated debut EP; which is a seven-track lesson on love in all its forms.

Bare is a song about someone loving you in your rawest, most genuine form. It’s about being loved by someone who sees you, flaws and all, and still chooses to love you fully,” said Joby said.

“I want Bare to put people in their feelings. It’s a groovy, sensual love song that people will want to listen to over and over again.”

Bare came about while Joby observed herself au naturel before an event; she realised how much she really appreciated herself in that state. She knew then and there that she wanted to compose a song that celebrated that state of being. It’s delivered in a ballad style with layered harmonies; it’s mellow yet upbeat in some parts with subtle hints at the more sensual nature of love.

“I wanted it to be a sexy song, even though it doesn’t mention sex. Love is sexy and I wanted that to be translated,” she said.

Love Levels is a personal diary, detailing Joby’s own experiences and revelation with (and about) love.

It speaks to the varying ‘levels’ one can attain when exposed to the lessons that love can teach.

“The beauty that comes from vulnerability and shared experiences is something I continuously find interest in,” Joby explained.

“My love experiences, both platonic and romantic, have taught me so much about people and, in turn, so much about myself.”

Joby is fresh off the now annual Lost In Time Festival, held by two-time Grammy-nominated artiste
Protoje and is preparing for this year’s staging of the Earth Hour concert.

Bare is out now across all DSPs with visuals to follow in early April.
