Kerry B single encourages listeners to defy negativity and aspire to greatness!
Singer-songwriter, Kerry B, best-known for her soulful music, is set to take the local music industry by storm with the release of her latest single, JEALOUS.
Showcasing her exceptional songwriting skills and powerful vocals, the artist invites listeners on a journey of self-reflection and empowerment.
JEALOUS is an upbeat dance/pop anthem that explores the nuanced emotions of jealousy and its transformative potential.
“As an empath I can feel people’s emotions freakishly well. The problem is that jealousy and hatred feel exactly the same to me,” Kerry explains.“This song is all about my own realization that jealousy is not necessarily a bad emotion. It’s just an indicator that you want something that you are not yet courageous enough to go for. Once I realized that, it was a game changer.”
She further adds that this song is a bit more personal than her previous offering as the lyrics required a lot more thought and consideration.
“We had just come home from a really awful weekend away, and I was defeated. I wrote this song in order to sort through my feelings and to gain clarity. I rewrote the lyrics multiple times, delving deep into my own experiences and reflecting on difficult questions. Every word carries an emotion that I had to go through. It was a challenging but incredibly worthwhile process.”
A music video of this empowering song will be available in September.
Following the success of her previous single, Did it mean nothing?, which surpassed her expectations and served as a strong kick-off point for the singer’s career, she is eager to continue her musical journey on an upward trajectory.
Beyond her music endeavours, this talented woman is actively engaged in various projects. She is currently spearheading a recycling initiative and leading a clean-up project at TAG, her husband’s company. Additionally, she is overseeing reconstruction, repairs, and refurbishment at home while diligently planning and creating content and trying to land monthly gigs.
Looking ahead, she has an exciting lineup for the rest of the year, which includes as many shows as possible and a special getaway for her birthday and anniversary in October. In her quest for artistic growth, she aims to enhance her piano and ukulele skills while actively increasing her following on social media platforms.
Amid personal challenges and recent family drama, she remains resilient and optimistic and emphasizes the importance of acknowledging our shared humanity, stating: “We all have ups and downs, we make mistakes, and we all experience jealousy. But let’s call it what it is: fear.”
Born in Krugersdorp, Kerry B’s deep connection to music has been a constant throughout her life. Despite initial discouragement, she pursued formal musical training, learning piano, vocals, and music theory.
Her talent was discovered serendipitously, leading her to launch her part-time music tutoring business. However, her true calling beckoned, and she put her teaching career on hold when her husband’s transfer took them to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Upon returning to South Africa, Kerry B seized the opportunity to pursue a full-time career as a music teacher, fuelling her passion for music and inspiring others with her exceptional abilities.
As she continues to evolve as an artist, she finds inspiration in the things that bring her joy. Writing, in particular, serves as a healing practice that has saved her on countless occasions.
With JEALOUS poised to make waves in the music industry, Kerry B’s talent, resilience, and determination are propelling her towards a bright and promising future.
Listeners will be captivated by the infectious and catchy nature of the single, which combines uplifting and empowering lyrics with an irresistible dance/pop sound to create a song that encourages individuals to pursue their dreams despite the naysayers.
She concludes: “Everyone I know has had some kind of bully in their lives. There is always someone that doesn’t want to see you succeed. This song is intended to uplift and encourage myself and others to defy the negativity and strive for greatness.”
