The digital savvy 17 year old X Factor alumni shared, “I’ve been working and writing in the studio away from my friends and family and from everything I could call home… discovering who I want to be, where I want to go and to ultimately find happiness. And I did, in people, in places, in the studio, and in love. I met a girl and to be honest most of these songs are about her and the struggle of loving someone who just happens to be on the other side of the world. But when someone means everything, the distance means nothing.”
Jai has been building his online empire generating awareness with his YouTube clips and the creation of weekly sharable content. Speaking to an audience of over 2.7 million, he has now amassed a mammoth 55 million views on YouTube/Vevowith over 12 million streams on Spotify for all of his releases.
