Pittsburgh-bred songstress Jaira Burns‘ has become quite the welcome surprise this year, having already supplied us with the utterly killer “Ugly” and the impressively moody “Slow Burn.” But why stop there? Let’s keep it rollin…
Today, the blue-haired rising star has dropped yet another new impressive track: “High Rollin,” produced and written alongside Jaira, LELAND, Cara Salimando and The Futuristics.
The bass-heavy cut, which brings Tinashe and Cassie to mind, sees the silky-voiced songstress getting lost in fucks-free state of mind (or in this case, state of high) above a tripping, electro-R&B production. “Soon as I get out of bed I/ Roll one and I smoke up/ Got to change my head/ Car wash, sittin’ in my Benz/ I roll one and I smoke up/ Always keep it lit,” Jaira confidently declares above the hard-hitting pulsations. “‘Cause we high rollin’, high rollin’, high rollin’/ Yeah we high rollin’, high rollin’, high rollin’.” It’s a trip, indeed.
With each track, Jaira‘s only continuing to add more depth and versatility to her steadily growing catalog. She’s already one of the year’s best finds. Is there no end to this? I sure hope not!
Jaira is gearing up for her first stateside tour in January, where she will be supporting Australian-born musician Wafia. Tickets for the tour can be purchased at www.jairaburns.com.
