JAKEGATEWOOD New Release Eyes On U
JAKEGATEWOOD got us singing “everybody’s eyes on you!” with his newest release “Eyes on U,” featuring Trey Kams, Shraban and Zayland. We love a good Dallas combo. This release has us somewhere between a trance and dance party, what’s new. And we keep saying “me too,” in a deep voice. You will have to listen to the song to understand, so go do that! But not before you read his interview below.
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
JAKEGATEWOOD: “The inspiration for ‘Eyes On U,’ was definitely my love for House music. Some artists that come to mind would be Kaytranada, Neil Frances, Toro Y Moi & Channel Tres; just to name a few. With my new music, this is definitely the sound that I’ve inherited and fell in love with. You’ll be hearing a lot more of it in my future releases leading up to a debut full length project. To answer the other part of the question, I’m not sure that there’s a real story attached. It’s more of a feeling attached. When writing my music, I usually like to ‘zoom into,’ a feeling, and the definition of how I felt at a particular time. This song’s story could be a telling of a time that I saw someone I was attracted to, or it could be something from my imagination, or even from multiple experiences. I’d rather the listener decide that for themselves.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
JAKEGATEWOOD: “‘I seen you walking across the room
I want her and she want me too
Now take my hand let’s make a move
Don’t need nobody but us two'”
“Shraban and I both wrote this section. It reminds me of that moment where your first lock eyes with someone. Pretty straightforward I’d say.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
JAKEGATEWOOD: “Eyes On U,” is definitely my favorite single so far. From the cover art, the production, the rollout & the birth of JAKEGATEWOOD sound. I enjoyed the entire process. From collaborating with my good friend, Trey Kams to meeting Shraban for the first time, to then getting Zayland for a second collaboration. I think the four of us made something that could be meaningful and a definite play for anyone whether you’re driving down the highway at 2 AM, winding down with a loved one after a long night, or on the way to a kickback. I feel like this song could play an important role in many different social situations. I love having that thought when releasing music. Other than that, I’m just excited for what’s to come next! A lot of great music, growth, and more… You’ll be seeing. “
