Interpolating Ray Charles’s “Hit The Road Jack” with a modern R&B twist is Journey Montana’s new single, “Jack.”
“On my version, ‘Jack’ represents hitting a breaking point and what happens when you realize enough is enough and it’s time to let that man go,” Journey Montana says about the record. “This is a song about a woman choosing and trusting herself.”
“Jack” sees the singer dropping impactful lyrics about not needing a partner to fulfill her wants and needs. Throughout the R&B cut, Journey Montana uses a passionate register. The musician reveals that without this person, she can reach new heights.
“I think I’m better off/When you leave me lonely/When you don’t call me/Stop pulling me down,” she sings.
As the song continues, Journey Montana realizes her soon-to-be exes’ bad habits and the imbalance in their relationship. Additionally, the Harlem artist asserts that they are done for good.
