A track you just can’t help but dance to, emerging artist JayQ the Legend’s ‘Body Talk’ graces our ears just in time for the summer- the perfect song to help you beat the heat.
The culprits on this track include Grammy-winning hitmaker SOKO7 and the up-and-coming OBA. If you were a fan of Drake’s ‘One Dance’ or Rhianna’s ‘Work’ this is definitely the song for you.
The story is simple yet classic. JayQ raps and sings about the ups and downs of a relationship and the undeniable physical attraction that keeps this relationship intact. ‘Body Talk’ is heavy in puns and wordplay that is both humorous and clever. Effortlessly told through JayQ’s rich vocal and grooving instruments, the chase that everyone loves to hate has never sounded so catchy.
Born in New Orleans, JayQ the Legend has had the opportunity to travel around the world during his time as a US Marine. The Afro-Caribbean influences on this track reflect what must have been an enriching experience. Whether you’re at the club, the beach, a barbeque, or just cruising down the highway, you’ll want to play ‘Body Talk’ over and over.
