“Down for the Weekend” is the upcoming single from breaking R&B Soul Pop artist Jai’o which is due for release on May 17th. Just in time for summer, the UK-based artist has cooked up a vibrant serving of accessibly smooth R&B which comes with a well-manicured finish, and a generous serving of soul. Yet, as much as I appreciated Down for the Weekend, it was hard to find any perceptible amount of distinction or authenticity behind the track. It’s evident that Jai’o has the ability to construct a solid track with plenty of hooks, atmosphere, and harmony – yet, I’d really love to hear a signature style stamped down with Jai’o’s future releases.
You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Jai’o’s latest single Down for the Weekend for yourselves, but you can join in with the anticipation of the new release by heading over to SoundCloud now and checking out some of the artist’s earlier releases.
