With the pandemic in full effect this month, it’s given many people time to self-reflect, catch up on Z’s, but most importantly, hone into their crafts. One artist who has been making good use of their 24 hours is Jaquae, a rapper that carries the ability to make music come alive with storytelling, according to Spotify. Jaquae’s first smash hit “That’s Harr” hit airwaves in 2014. Afterward, Jaquae made a guest appearance on Cristion D’or‘s single “Comfortable,” which then followed with another hit single called “My Pieces Hittin’,” in 2015.
More recently, Jaquae released a single called “Quarantine,” which sees the rapper in a reflective mind state. Moreso, about his love life. Between lyrics, Jaquae expresses to his love interest that if she “wants to ride,” he can “bring her up to speed.” All he’d like is for this shawty to give him a chance. Though Jaquae says that the quarantine has him “in his bag,” he’s willing to unveil his true feelings towards her. In turn, the “Hook King” hopes that she doesn’t run away. If she stays, he’s going to give her the world and then some. The soundscape carries a double-taking bassline, bouncy piano number, 808 slides, and sporadic hi-hats. Jaquae delivers his Cupid-like verses in a melodic auto-croon.
