Journalist. What first got you into music?
I was encauraged in elementary school by my friend named Shelbe Davis. We were freestyle queens and kings in elementary school. We used to rap and make beats on tables. I had support at home from my older sister Alma Davis and my older brothers Charles and Quienten Davis. Alma and Charles were rappers and Quienten was a singer. So I heard it at home 24/7. My mom used to have my younger sister, Tiana Blue and I sing at nursing homes, and funerals. I remember like it was yesterday. All my mom had to say to us was “Hit a note” and we would sing like birds.
Journalist. Who inspired you to make music?
As a young creator, I make timeless music.Music that will stand the test of time. So it’s not really a who, but what. I’m inspired by love.
Journalist. How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Jaee creates music from the heart. Who better to explain the way a woman thinks and behaves then another woman? Jaee The Artist connects with women from life and first hand experience as a woman. She uses this to heal past traumas buried deep in the emotions of women and helps the fellas better understand their role in the experience. The goal is for the fellas to feel comfortable loving, understanding and connecting with a woman. Rather it’s his mom, aunt, niece, cousin, sister, daughter, wife, friend or partner. Jaee The Artist is deeply rooted in her feminine energy, but balances out with her masculine energy.
Journalist. What is your creative process like?
I freestyle, I say whatever comes to mind. Everything has energy, Once I hear a beat, I pay attention to how it makes me feel and where it takes my energy. My words just follow.
Journalist. Who would you most like to collaborate with? Who would I open for?
Dej Loaf, K Camp, Patti Labelle and Roddy Rich
I’ve been gender neutral since freshman year of college. I attract men and women and honestly, I don’t have a preference. If I can vibe with you. We golden. A lot of my male friends came to me for advice about females. I figured, I can show you better than I can tell you. From there I’ve been making solid connections and staying in my own lane. I dress how I want, I get what I want. I also work hard for what I want. We all have that one that try to take advantage, but I deal with them accordingly. If it no longer serves you or your energy, let it go. Respectfully.
