Jay Watts Releases New Single, "Steps"

Singer-Songwriter Jay Watts Releases New Single, "Steps" In Anticipation Of Forthcoming EP, "Antidote"

"Steps" was written by Jay Watts and produced by Pio. The laid-back and mid-tempo song was "inspired by me listening to a few records from the '70s and I simply wanted to bring that call-to-action type of vibe back into today's music space. It's a familiar vibe that we all can relate to," mentions Jay Watts.

"Steps" is the second release from Jay Watts' upcoming EP, "Antidote", scheduled for release on March 25th. "NUMB", was the official first release from the project.


“I’ll be like this era’s Bobby Brown;” New Jersey native Jay Watts only half-jokingly muses. Described as the urban pop/R&b “It Boy”, singer/songwriter/producer Jay Watts – is set out to ambitiously deliver on the promising genre-fusing momentum of noteworthy and infectious breakthrough single releases over the past few years with his soon-to-be-released debut EP, “Antidote.”

Jay has been coming into his own in the music industry over the last several years and his hard work has paid off. Whether his beat-ballad flow of popularly streamed, hip-hop love story-like “Single Friends,” that mainstream-tinged head-boppin’ “My Dreams,” or the low-key anthemic pop-rock sheen of his Power Rangers soundtrack standout “Watch Me Walk,” which afforded Major League Baseball’s The Show exposure, and the latter grew into a heavily streamed urban success. The self-professed “King of Ratchet Pop” has confidently taken his time creating a premiere set which more than delivers on audience curiosity.


Coming from humble beginnings, he says he could be found “freestyling at the lunch tables, cracking jokes, shutting talent shows down” and front-center every single time for his family’s favorite pastime….karaoke. “I come from a family that likes get-togethers,” Jay recalls. “To this very day, they still do karaoke…singing all of the old school songs. So I originally got into it just from that. When they weren’t using the karaoke machine I would just take it into my room and experiment.” While he wasn’t taking formal music lessons, his passion and talent were so clearly evident by the time he was 12 that his mother booked his first studio session.
