You heard it here first… Jayde may be the closest thing to an angel on Earth we’ll ever get to know. Growing up in Ontario, Jayde has always been pulled to externalize her thoughts and eventually found her way to songwriting. Ready to be as genuine as humanly possible, Jayde is leaving us in shambles with her intoxicating new single, “all i wanted.”
On “all i wanted,” Jayde shared,
“I felt like a fraud in my own life because to a certain degree, I wasn’t living my life. I was living the life that everyone else wanted me to live. ‘all i wanted’ is about getting what you thought would bring you happiness but then still feeling unfulfilled. It’s about the debilitating realization that your dreams were way more exciting before you achieved them and then questioning everything you’ve ever wanted.”
If you’ve ever felt like you’re doing things for the wrong reasons, “all i wanted” will speak directly to your soul. Layered with polished beats and charming vocals, this hypnotizing track is a step away from Jayde’s previous melancholy releases, and we’re all about it. With plenty more music planned for 2022, we’re convinced that this may be Jayde’s most transformative year yet.
“I was at a very stagnant place in my life. I felt like I was very stuck in this one place–both emotionally and physically–and I remember wanting to ensue chaos on my own life but the little angel on my shoulder would often say, ‘No, you don’t actually want that, I promise…’ And from there, I felt like I was just in this constant battle with where I was and what I could do to get out of the monotonous cycle I felt trapped in.”
