Jade de LaFleur - Shotgun

Hear “Shotgun,” the bouncy, groovy single from Jade de LaFleur’s upcoming PsychoPop EP.

There’s finally going to be a follow-up to Jaded.

Fans of Jade de LaFleur have had to remain content with the singer-songwriter’s debut album for two years now; and while Jaded is more than capable of standing the test of time, the clamoring for a new body of work from the Prairie View A&M-made, Brooklyn-based de LaFleur remained. Jade, to her credit, has kept the material coming. Earlier this year, for example, the songbird dropped off a sizzling rework of PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake’s “Come And See Me.”

Now, Jade de LaFleur is preparing a new EP, PsychoPop, and she liberated the EP’s first single, “Shotgun,” on Monday. Premiered by Billboard, “Shotgun” was co-written by de LaFleur and Corey Chorus.

Patrick Wimberly is on the boards for “Shotgun,” employing a percussion-driven, island-flavored instrumental; the beat changes at points, Wimberly constantly adding layers to the song over the course of its three minute run length. Jade’s voice, in a perfect showcase of versatility, adapts to the beat every time. It’s a smooth, sensual ride in which the singer sets her lover in her crosshairs and lays out intentions for the both of them.
