Quick Thoughts: With the release of each track, Jay Pareil shows he’s ready to take his career to new heights. He’s an artist whose delivery matches the image he’s created for himself: everything feels authentic, yet carefully curated. While his catalog isn’t all that extensive, each of his tracks is impressive. He shows growth with every release and his latest single, “How,” is his most complete track yet.
Over sparse keys and an infectious flute melody, Jay takes control of the beat, guiding it in the direction he chooses. His entrance is smooth, and once the beat drops, he’s on go mode. He carefully jabs and retreats with each of his bars, letting the listener digest everything he says, while also letting the beat breathe. I hope Jay has another single dropping this year, but if he doesn’t, I’ll keep playing “How” on repeat.
