After supporting August Alsina on his UK tour, London based R&B artist J-SoL released his first new solo music of the year with “Sober.” Now, to accompany the feel-good, summery track the singer/songwriter has unveiled a vibrant and playful music video.
Shot in Los Angeles the colorful visual finds J-SoL lounging on a raft in a pool, while in additional scenes he dances on the beach with a troop of ladies and enjoys all around good vibes during a house party. Eager to get back to his own music J-SoL explains why he chose to release this track and what it means to him.
“‘Sober’ is the perfect transition in to my new sound,” explains SoL. “I freestyled it in the studio with my producer and we laid it down pretty much on the fly. When I wrote the song, I rarely drank but since writing it, it’s almost like I’m now literally living it! I think a lot of people can relate to having that extra bit of confidence when they’ve had a drink or two down them!”
Setting the scene for careless decisions he sings, “I think we’ve passed Netflix and chill / This Henny got me going in for the kill / Drunk texting your number and you’re turning me on / Ain’t no telling what I’m gon’ do / When I see you baby girl and we’re all alone.”
Next month, J-SoL is expected to join Mila J on her European tour on March 25 in London and Amsterdam on March 21. Check out his “Sober” video above.
