Jaalid – Paradox

Boston singer Jaalid‘s ear was trained on his father’s library of reggae and soca, his mother’s love of jazz and ’70s R&B, and whatever the local rap station Jamn 94.5 was playing at the time. As a result, he’s a well-rounded musician with a feel for melody and hip-hop. His latest single, “Paradox” via Litt Music, is a wash of ethereal R&B with a little bop. It’s a true recollection of the work he’s put in to get to here.

Jaalid – Paradox

“This song stems from the trials and tribulations one goes through when attempting to be successful in an industry that most people think is amazing—but in reality it’s very stressful,” I have noticed that those who become successful in this industry do not always turn out to be as happy as they anticipated. During my journey to become an established musician I’ve had moments where I feel greatness only to be trumped by thoughts of anxiety and doubt. I called this track ‘Paradox’ because sometimes doing what you love can cost you who you love and who you are.”
