J.Lately is preparing the masses for his forthcoming body of work “Be Fucking Happy” with the new music he’s been dropping off over the Summer. His previous single, “Let Go” featuring Rexx Life Raj, was the first jab at the full length project, and it touched on something we all have to do sometimes– take life’s lemons & make you a grand jar of lemonade.
With his new release “I’ll Be Living,” he switches up the pace a bit, as far as the overall vibe, but the message is still very clear. The aptly titled project heading rings throughout each featured track, and as we ready ourselves for J.Lately’s new work as well as the live performances that will soon take place along the West Coast (see tour dates here), we are reminded to do just that.. Be f’ing happy.
Tune in below for J.Lately’s new Demrick & Khyenci Tienne assisted record, “I’ll Be Living”.
This album is my solo follow up to The Good Panda EP, which I released in 2016. It will be the first full length album I’ve released since Let’s Just Be Friends in 2015. The album is a simple message to myself to “Be Fucking Happy”. There’s been many times in my life where I’ve struggled with depression, where I’ve been so focused on the future that I forgot to enjoy the present, and where I’ve prioritized other things before my happiness. But, when I look around me I see so many blessings and beautiful things that I feel like an idiot for not being able to find my happiness amongst all of it. This album is a reminder to me to get out of my own head and get out of my own way, and just enjoy the beauty that surrounds me every day, or at least to try harder to do so. -J.Lately
