Toronto-based R&B singer Jayd Ink has recently released her new single and music video titled “Queen St.”
The singer teams up with SZA’s “Good Days” producer Los Hendrix for her new offering and says that the song was penned during the pandemic and later turned into an outlet for her to reflect on her internal, introspective narrative.
“To clear my head, I like to go for a ride, play some music or just drive in silence,” Jayd explains in a statement on her new single. “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.”
Having already been featured by Beats 1 Radio, BBC 1Xtra, CBC, and other radio stations worldwide – Jayd Ink is on track to becoming one of the next big R&B acts coming out of Toronto. As the songstress gets set to reveal her upcoming EP ‘Catching Red Lights,’ we’ll be keeping her on our radar for her project rollout.
