“A few years ago I was feeling stuck, lost in my thoughts and unmotivated. I felt like I was stuck in Toronto, not being able to travel like I used to, had me feeling a bit stagnant.”

Haven’t we all been there? These past few years have been of contemplation and self-doubt, with external forces redirecting us towards complexities we had never faced before. Jayd Ink’s new single and video ‘Queen St’ aesthetically summarises what we’ve all been through – which is why it won’t fail to steal anyone’s heart.

“Whilst I was going for these rides I found myself exploring my city with fresh eyes, connecting with it in new ways and just learning to appreciate the memories that I’d had here and this particular street struck a chord and really stood out to me, like never before.”

Likewise, listening to ‘Queen St’, we find ourselves exploring R&B and soul with fresh new ears, tasting developed nuances and learning refreshing sounds that are innovative yet familiar. This track is comforting and simultaneously exciting. Jayd Ink is an undoubtedly exciting R&B star in the making. We’ll stay tuned to hear more from her – it’ll be just perfect!

 

“To clear my head, I like to go for a ride, play some music or just drive in silence. This record is about sitting with yourself and going for that late drive to unwind from the day. Queen Street is a popular street in Toronto, it’s where the majority of people do most of their shopping and hang out. During lockdown, it was deserted, so it was a perfect drive and I’d never seen it so empty. Whilst I was going for these rides I found myself exploring my city with fresh eyes, connecting with it in new ways and just learning to appreciate the memories that I’d had here and this particular street struck a chord and really stood out to me, like never before.” – Jayd Ink
