Premiere: Cool Whip-[Jak Lizard]

Emerging artists come from every corner of the music industry, which sometimes makes it hard to delineate who to pay attention to. Today on the pages of Lyrical Lemonade, I’m hype to bring you an artist who is worth all the attention and more. If you haven’t heard of Jak Lizard, I advise you to open up your Spotify right now and familiarize yourself with the up and comer who is destined to leave a lasting impression when it’s all said and done.

I came across the 25-year-old Long Island, New York native about a month and a half ago and have been enamored ever since. The pure soul and immense beauty that Jak sings with is incomparable to anything I’ve heard in recent memory. He possesses a certain polish that I’ve only heard the greats possess which is unbelievable to see at the young age of his. Today, the up and comer is making his very first Lyrical Lemonade appearance for his brand new song and video entitled “Cool Whip”. Upon first listen and first watch, there is a youthful and exciting energy that beams from this offering. Jak’s vocal talents and fun presence takes over this well produced track that will be stuck in your head all weekend long. I was able to grab a quote from Jak about the song and he explained:

“The first thing to mention about this song is how the goal with producer Sean Smith was to have fun. Make a song that feels light, danceable, and fun. The story with ‘Cool Whip’ is that it’s a song actually talking about heavy matters. It’s talking about recreational drug use and excessive buying of flashy toys which we don’t need. Whether it’s a wild night at the club, a new car, or some instagrammable sandwich when you’ve already eaten lunch; the hook of ‘Cool Whip’ is asking folks to chill a bit, take a step back from all the flashiness”.

Everything Jak Lizard aimed to accomplish with “Cool Whip” is alive within this offering. I’m so excited for y’all to check this one out. I’ve attached the link to the video, so take some time to check it out and let us know what you think!
