April Jai rewrites what it means to be vulnerable through music in her newest single "Me Too".
This track is heartbreaking. Jai's voice is pure and cuts through the piano in a beautiful and raw way. The single is one of healing and expressing her trauma and experiences. Her sense of agency and regaining control shares a message of empowerment and strength that needs to be admired. Very few songs make me cry on first listen but April captured my heart and tapped into an experience and the healing process that needs to be heard.
"Writing "Me Too" was the most cathartic experience for me. I had been told that "time heals all wounds" by so many people before and it just made me feel incredibly horrible and guilty for not having healed from my trauma, so out of those feelings, this song was born. This might be the saddest song I'll ever write but there's definitely a message of hope in there too. I've been super nervous about releasing this song but I know for a fact that it will help someone who is also trying to heal from a traumatic experience." - April Jai
