Brooklyn rapper Jay Bel has been on our radar ever since we first heard his single “Kate” last year. Since then, he’s followed up with singles like “Smoke Break,” “TransEuro,” and “Acid Lake” that continue to be more impressive than the last. Now as he gears up to release his debut project Bohemia later this spring, he returns with a new single titled “Pyano.”
For his latest release, the 20-year-old rapper offers up a double single that showcases the opposing sides of his own feelings. “‘Pyano’ is a two part break-up/come-back song I cooked up during some pretty hilarious, yet depressing times,” says Jay.
Jay opens up the track with a fast-paced delivery that mirrors the rapid movement of one’s racing thoughts immediately after a break-up. Before transitioning into the second half of the song, Jay’s delivery as well as the rhythm gets noticeably smoother. “They mix so well considering both parts are about the same girl and the thought process of getting through and over said girl.”
As he repeats, “Pack up all the pieces / put myself together” the darker tones within the beginning of the track gradually brighten up as Jay works to bounce back from the events that influenced this track. However, the end results feel like the appropriate soundtrack for anyone looking for a motivational push to keep going.
