Most Wanted – [Jean Deaux]

Chicago’s own Jean Deaux returns to Lyrical Lemonade with a stunning new EP titled Most Wanted. With eight songs total, Deaux in my opinion has delivered her best work so far sonically. From the opener to the final track, the project flows seamlessly thanks to the well-timed transitions and A1 record mixing. Jean’s vocals sound as crisp as ever; her all-around skillset creates a versatile offering with R&B, hip-hop, and borderline trap influences. As for personal favorites, “Stay Down” is one of the most impressive songs I’ve heard all year; all musical aspects are executed with a quality of finesse as if to illustrate the unmatched flare of her artistry & persona. “ChopNScrew” featuring Ambré is another standout; it flows like a Pinkpantheress single with a slower tempo for a more mature (albeit enthralling) atmosphere. Not only is Jean Deaux the ‘most wanted,’ but after delivering an EP of this considerable quality, she’ll be among the most-listened to artists on my radar for the foreseeable future.
