Watch JayQ The Legend’s Music Video To His Debut Single “Body Talk” Here:
Impressing vocally and structurally, JayQ The Legend’s “Body Talk” is a track that does get stuck in one’s head from the very first listen. Lyrically, he sings about that one moment of sexual tension during a passion-fuelled argument, striving for mutual respect whilst being in a lover’s struggle. It’s a concept that is rarely mentioned let alone sung about, and yet JayQ The Legend takes that one single moment in time and creates an addictive track around it. His vocals are on fire reminding us of Young Thug, Fetty Wap, and Ty Dolla $ign.
As for the music video, it is set in an underground club with the opening scenes showing JayQ The Legend descending the stairs. He reaches the bar where he spots three women dancing to the track that is playing. He catches the eyes of one of the women and starts to dance with her before the three dancers all walk off to another section of the club. He follows, continuing the flirtatious atmosphere between the two of them, all the while he is singing his song showing off his performance style and stage presence – we have to admit, he is full of energy and we’re sure he would be brilliant to see at his own gig. There are also cut-scenes of the three women knocking out some on-point dance choreography.
“Body Talk” is available to download and stream right now, via BreakOut Music. His forthcoming EP, set to be titled JayQ 4U, will be out soon.
