On January 10th, Femi Jaye released a music video for his latest single Motive via YouTube. Since the release, it has accumulated well over 26k views on the video streaming platforms and continues to grow as the days go by.
Motive is a smooth R&B track with an afro-swing flavor that shows off Jaye’s penchant for writing catchy melodies. Written during the lockdown period the single acts as a hopeful look forward and a reminder that we’ll one day be allowed out again, asking “what’s the motive?” The simple video allows the track to shine whilst exuding positive vibes, as we follow Jaye on his way to meet the protagonist of the story, where they embrace, laugh and dance.
First emerging in 2014 with his debut mixtape Where’s Femi, Jaye flexes his range of life experiences by pushing the UK afro-fusion envelope through a consistent mix of attention grabbing releases. His relatable music spans topics such as personal insecurities, reckless behavior and the passing of close friends, taking an honest approach that has caught the attention of fans and tastemakers alike, securing slots in top Spotify curated playlists including Rap UK and Fresh Finds.
