There’s no doubt that Jax Jones is one of the most exciting DJs and producers to emerge in recent years.
Having blessed us with huge hits including ‘You Don’t Know Me’ with Raye, ‘Instruction’ with Demi Lovato and Stefflon Don, and ‘Breathe’ with Ina Wroldsen, we’ve been looking forward to more new music from the hitmaker.
During his support slot on the UK leg of Demi Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me World Tour, Jax teased his new single and now it’s finally available for the world to bop along to. ‘Ring Ring’ sees Jax team up with rising star Mabel and ATL rapper Rich The Kid. The result is a catchy offering which is bound to be a huge hit over the coming months.
‘Ring Ring’ is laced with a danceable tropical beat which is true to Jax’s signature production style, however, overall the track has more of an urban feel to it in comparison to his previous releases. Mabel brings the sass with her distinct vocals as she gets one up on a former lover, whilst Rich The Kid adds in a rap verse which gives the track an extra sprinkle of goodness.
Speaking about the collaboration, Jax said: “I wanted to try and make something different to previous Jax Jones singles with Mabel, step away from the club and show more range, but something you can still have a little dance to.”
“Mabel was a brilliant collaborator, she lives and breathes everything she sings about, so to be part of that process in the studio was exciting. And then getting Rich The Kid felt right, the second Transatlantic collaboration I’ve done after Demi, and one of the hottest rappers of the moment in the U.S.”
Mabel added: “Working with Jax on ‘Ring Ring’ was such a fun experience. We spent two days in the studio together but we didn’t actually start writing ‘Ring Ring’ until the last hour of the session. It literally felt like the song was writing itself and the whole process was so exciting! It’s about regaining your power in a situation where you feel like you’ve been treated badly and how you can always put yourself back in the driver’s seat.”
Take a listen to ‘Ring Ring’ below.
We’re already hooked on ‘Ring Ring’ and it’s truly exciting to hear three of the hottest artists of the moment coming together to create musical magic.
