Canadian pop songstress Jessia unveils a brand-new single entitled “I Should Quit” today via Artist Driven Records/Republic Records.
On the track, executive produced by Grammy award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Ryan Tedder, hyper-charged production underscores confessional verses as she immediately admits, “I should quit…having friends with benefits.” Her delivery rises and falls with the dizzying beat as she laments, “I should quit, but I want to see how it ends, ‘cause I’m a woman who doesn’t listen to her friends.” She deals with the conundrum of friends-with-benefits the best way she knows how, by making another bona fide bop.
Jessia’s music and lyrics continue to resonate. Where “I’m not Pretty” explored the powerful theme of self-acceptance, the saucy, staccato, and tongue-in-cheek “I Should Quit” traces what happens when you follow your heart and your gut… even when your head (and occasionally, your well-meaning best friends) suggests otherwise. “I’m really good at giving advice but not always good at taking it. I know what I SHOULD do but what’s the fun in always playing it safe? Sometimes you just need to fully accept that you are a hot mess,” she said.
