Video: Big Jade – “Soulmate” ft. Fredo Bang
Beaumont, TX’s Finest Emcee Expands Her Style As She Goes Back and Forth With Fredo Bang in a Melodic Single and New Video
“Beaumont, Texas loudmouth Big Jade has the best music videos. They’re a much needed break from the endless stream of fifteen dudes stuffed into an Airbnb, pointing guns at the shaky cameraman, and doing donuts in rented cars outside.” – Pitchfork
“Jade’s music is grimy and guttural, with a punch-you-in-the-jaw directness and a deep snarl.” – Stereogum
“Pressure, out via Alamo Records, is pure adrenaline and charisma as the Beaumont native stakes her claim as one of Texas’ best rappers, rattling off searing bars over high-energy beats” – Audiomack
“On Pressure she employs that sharp, incisive flow to display her pointed wit over speaker slamming production… Big Jade is in a prime position to become the latest star from the state where everything is bigger.” – UPROXX
“This unrivaled skill, confidence, and charisma are the attributes that make Big Jade so interesting.” – Lyrical Lemonade
Big Jade burst out of Beaumont with blunt force bars and a lyrical honesty that helped her stand out in the Texas scene. Switching up her style for a sultry new anthem, Big Jade shares “Soulmate,” her new video single. Produced by DJ Chose, “Soulmate” is no romantic gesture, but a definitive statement of where things stand: “You ain’t my soulmate, you my f*ckmate,” intones Jade. The new song departs from Jade’s usual style, showing a melodic side of the emcee that she’s never revealed before.
The song features a characteristically smooth guest appearance from Fredo Bang, who is happy to oblige with Jade’s short-term needs. In the video, directed by ShotByJolo, the two Southern rappers ditching their current flings to be with each other, culminating in a steamy scene in Fredo’s red Chevy Caprice. “Soulmate” is the follow-up to “Gangsta Activity,” Jade’s first single of 2023.
“Soulmate” is the latest salvo in Jade’s rise to prominence, which started in 2020. Last year, the Alamo Records signee released a trio of Texas-fried jams: “Pesos,” a collaboration with Galveston’s Peso Peso, the thumping “Lower,” her thumping twerk anthem, and “Eat,” an expansive collaboration with Houston legend Z-Ro. Jade experienced viral success late in the year when “Rodeo,” her collaboration with Dallas rapper Lah Pat (102k TikTok creations). Jade is currently hard at work on her follow-up to Pressure, Jade’s critically acclaimed new album, which earned praise from Stereogum and Pitchfork.
With much more music on the way, Jade looks to resume her role as the hottest rapper in the Lone Star State. Stay tuned.

“I got the attention of the right people by being genuinely myself,” explains rapper Big Jade.
From Beaumont, Texas, the 26-year-old spitter made a name for herself by releasing a series of videos online that showcased her rapping ability. However, her Beatking-produced “RPM” showed a woman juggling rap dreams while doing hair. She was unashamed, unapologetic, and uncut. “It was real. That’s how I grind and get money,” admits Jade. “I’m not out here getting rap money yet; I’m popular on Instagram. Rappers are scared to say they’re doing something else just to make it. Where are you getting the money to invest in yourself and make it happen? Because that’s where it all starts for all of us.” Newly signed to Alamo Records, Big Jade took those steps to get noticed, and now she hopes to put herself and her city on the map.
