New Jai Paul

 

Jai Paul is a reclusive British songwriter and producer who managed to get himself signed to XL on the strength of a single exceptional demo. To be fair ‘BTSU’ really was an exceptional song, which even weepy narcissist Drake recognized when he sampled it on his last album. Now Jai Paul has proved he’s not a one trick pony by posting this corker of a demo on his soundcloud yesterday.

New track ‘Jasmine’ has Jai paul displaying some exquisite electro-funk pop stylings, as opposed to the skewed hip hop slant of ‘BTSU’. In any case it really is a superb and bittersweet pop song, and it might be the best thing we’ve heard all year. Listen it below.
