It’s no surprise Jetta has discovered her newfound confidence, she’s about to go platinum in America, worked with Pharrell, and is mentored by one of the studio masterminds behind Destiny’s Child and Mary J. Blige. That’s enough to give anybody a bit of a boost.
Today, Jetta drops her new single Livin’, a throwback to 90s club and pop sounds. Jetta’s motto is “expression without limits” and in the “Livin’” video she appears like a cyber Gwen Stefani in a floor-length blue coat, exploring different latex-wrapped guises a la Lady Gaga. It’s a song for shaking off the bad vibes, says Jetta, which suits the new decade well. “We all need that message right now,” she continues, “we need some escapism. I’m a 90s child and it was such a feel-good time, in terms of UK garage and so much of the dance music then. I really wanted to tap into that.”
To say that Jetta is a DIY artist with laser-sharp vision is a bit of an understatement. The Liverpudlian artist writes and produces her own music from her bedroom studio, has started her own label, put on live showcases, and even manages herself. Now all the stars have aligned and Jetta’s is about to release her best music yet, 2020 is going to be Jetta’s year.
