Critical Praise for Jaylien

“JAYLIEN‚Äôs debut EP,¬†Summer‚Äôs Over, is a rhythmic seven-song set that showcases his well-honed pop chops.‚ÄĚ –¬†NYLON

“It‚Äôs hard not to imagine a bright future in the spotlight.‚Ä̬†– TIDAL

‚ÄúHit songwriter-producer JAYLIEN¬†moves into the forefront with debut EP. [Summer‚Äôs Over] has an international flair, a combination of the various types of music he enjoys, including soul, EDM, rap and trap.‚ÄĚ –¬†St. Louis Post Dispatch

The Song:

Ann accomplished songwriter and producer who has penned hits for everybody in the business,¬†JAYLIEN¬†is equally as formidable when stepping into centerstage and singing his own tracks. Singing his heart out over a spritely piano-laden R&B instrumental, JAYLIEN shares¬†Summer Love,¬†an ode to warm weather romance. Perfect for a poolside party, “Summer Love” is a joyous uptempo track, buoyed by JAYLIEN’s gorgeous vocals, ad-libs, and helium-voiced harmonies. Though the phrase “Summer Love” implies a temporary relationship and a sad ending, JAYLIEN is unencumbered by these worries, wrapped up in her beauty and her attitude: “See you remind me of Aaliyah/with a little Nia Long, yeah yeah yeah.” “Summer Love” is a change of pace from his previous single¬†Lucky Guy,” a sinister, psychodramatic, electro-tinged,¬†Tame Impala-sampling¬†R&B track, with a¬†Billboard-premiered¬†video¬†to match.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, and steeped in gospel and church music from a young age, Jaylien Wesley grew into an in-demand songwriter and producer from a young age.¬†JAYLIEN first made a name for himself as a go-to producer and songwriter with “Beautiful,”¬†a worldwide smash recorded by¬†Akon. After the success of “Beautiful,” JAYLIEN signed to Universal Music Publishing, producing and writing tracks for artists such as¬†¬†Chris Brown,¬†Cody Simpson,¬†Cheryl Cole,¬†T-Pain,¬†LL Cool J,¬†Quincy Jones,¬†will.i.am, and¬†T.I., striking biggest with¬†“Scream and Shout,” a top five Billboard hit for will.i.am and¬†Britney Spears.¬†Last summer, JAYLIEN impressed fans and critics with¬†Summer’s¬†Over, his debut album as a vocalist, which earned over a million plays on SoundCloud and featured singles such as “We Fcuk¬†and “Hotel Costes,” which¬†The FADER¬†called a “perfect song for radio.” Look for more music from JAYLIEN to drop later this year.

EMPIRE Background:

EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels.
