A Reluctant Share

Reluctantly I share Jai Paul, an enchanting British songwriter and producer. 

Jai Paul and I have history. We go back a couple of years with 'BTSTU'. A beautiful, bewitching private passion I was introduced to by a friend. Despite Paul successfully entrancing some big music names like Annie Mac and Zane Lowe with this track, it remained somewhat private.

Then, Drake decides to sample over that gem of a song with some crappy rap misfit called, 'Dreams Money Can Buy'. Not cool. Luckily, most people were too falsely entranced by Drake's apparent genius to question the real origin of the mesmerizing backtrack. Even Beyonce apparently tried to grab a piece of the with her track 'Till The End Of Time', but still Jai Paul seemingly remained safely swept under the magic carpet.

So just as I was beginning to feel secure, and at one with my personal Jai Paul secret, he goes and bloody releases another spellbinding track, 'Jasmine'. Fuck. There's no hushing this up.

And so, I reluctantly share Jai Paul, a magician of music, a wizard of wacky music and a sorcerer of song.

Private. Public. Mutual.

It's a rare familiarality finding a song that has affected a private community. Far too often there are personal vendettas dotted between the comments section of a song; weaving in and out of hateful, irrelevant or gushing posts. Users seem determined to argue with people they have never met, and content to write spiteful, meaningless comments. This song is no exception.

However one comment caught my eye:

Without this comment, this was an incredible song. But now there is another story behind this song.

Not only that, 235 other people feel this story, and someone else has even added to the true story. There is a private community of mutual understanding that this song, and Hoodie Allen helps someone who feels trapped, feel better.
