South Carolina-based rapper Blu Jay drops a stunning visual for the latest single, "Own Pace," which showcases his emotive, mesmerizing, musically dynamic production with an uplifting flow, making his unhurried way through his verses.
His latest visual for the latest drop is right; it's jaw-dropping, hauntingly atmospheric keys propelled by rhythmic bass drums & emotive goodness that resonates with listeners. The lyrics have taken his heartfelt experiences and impact, drilled them into our heads, and got our heads swayin' like a happy maniac. So, who is the new talent, and where's he heading?
The young talented rapper Blu Jay honed his skills among his friends and created a loyal following. Eventually, Blu Jay knew he had to leave school and bailed out during his senior year. Like most of us, listeners were worrying about paying rent, having enough food, and seeing how many push-ups they could do. But, as with many successful artists, this rapper endured the lull and kept honing his craft and laying down new tracks. He knew that even if tracks were not listened to then, they would be over time and create a stable base for his later works. You have to believe in yourself to take this step and have the guts to go through life-changing actions like this, and Blu Jay has this in spades. That said, it was also an opportunity to find time to get to where he wanted to be. Rushing sometimes doesn't produce the best results so having time to think and progress organically was the best thing for Blu Jay.
Finally, his album Mixed Emotions(2021) started reeling in the ears and gained some acclaim. People realized this rapper was new, still carving his roster of words and finessing tracks. This was the boost he needed and a key stepping stone to his Billboard-busting The Healing Journey (2022). His years of hard work were richly rewarded and hit the sweet spot of listeners just right. His track "Unusual" was blowing up simultaneously and helped generate a much larger audience for Blu Jay. There was synergy, and everything came together as it should.
