Jayd Ink has teamed up with SZA collaborator, producer Los Hendrix, on her new offering "Queen St."
The Toronto-based R&B powerhouse's new track is everything you'd expect- buttery smooth, alluring and reflective. Jayd proves that she has it all, delivering her aspirational vibes through a slick music video that guarantees that she'll be your new obsession.
Celestial samples blended with old-school inspired, reverberated beats bring something brand new to the table. Jayd's vocal delivery is delicate and utterly captivating, with bass creeping in and echoing backing vocals creating an atmospheric presence. Jayd takes 90s sounds and pulls them into a new age, delivering something entirely original.
Speaking about the inspiration of her home city, Jayd Ink shares,“To clear my head, I like to go for a ride, play some music or just drive in silence. This record is about sitting with yourself and going for that late drive to unwind from the day. Queen Street is a popular street in Toronto, it’s where the majority of people do most of their shopping and hang out. During lockdown, it was deserted, so it was a perfect drive and I’d never seen it so empty. Whilst I was going for these rides I found myself exploring my city with fresh eyes, connecting with it in new ways and just learning to appreciate the memories that I’d had here and this particular street struck a chord and really stood out to me, like never before.”
Jayd Ink is cementing herself as an undeniable R&B force, and whatever she does next, it's guaranteed to be irresistible.
