Music Monday|eaJ (Jae of DAY6) x Seori — It just is

Hey BAYOG Fam! It’s Monday! Y’all know what it is! We’re here for another Music Monday post! It’s officially fall. For fall, I tend to like more soft, chill, and r&b tracks. Imagine my surprise when eaJ (Jae of DAY6) dropped a collab with K-R&B/Soul singer Seori. An extra surprise is that Asian-American singer Keshi was also featured in it?! I was excited because I love Jae’s voice and I’ve really been getting into [DAY6] lately. I recently discovered and fell in love with [Seori’s] voice like last month? Lastly, Keshi is probably one of my favorite Asian-American artists. I seriously love his tracks. My favorites would be [2 Soon], [skeletons], and [right here].

So if you didn’t know, Jae is a member of idol K-band DAY6 under JYP Entertainment. DAY6 is like a band band, as in they write their own music and perform with instruments. So they’re an idol K-band like FT Island and CNBlue. However, Jae does do alot of solo side projects like running a [podcast]. He also releases solo music under the name [eaJ]. I really do like his voice and solo projects. I like that he’s a really versatile artist. He does his K-band and pop stuff. His solo stuff isn’t just pop, but also goes into R&B, lo-fi, and other sounds. I just love how smooth and relaxing his voice sounds. Sorry fam. Unfortunately this track isn’t on Spotify. However, it is on YouTube and SoundCloud.

Artist: eaJ (Jae of DAY6) x Seori
Track: It Just Is (feat. Keshi’s Strat)
Genre: R&B, Soul, K-Pop, Ambient
Release: 2020
Language: Korean/English

This track is a smooth, ambient, and mellow kind of R&B/Soul track. It has a bit of a melancholy feel to it. It features Keshi’s Strat (guitar). Seori’s vocals add this nice texture to the track with her soulful, yet dreamy vocals that have a bit of gruffness and smokiness to it. Then you have Jae’s gentle, soothing and smooth vocals that are almost airy at times. They go together with the track so well. I also love every little detail in the production and editing. I just absolutely loved, loved, loved this track upon the first listening. This track is totally my style. I absolutely love everything about it. It’s also a perfect late night track too. Seriously. I freaking love this track, and I’m just super sad that Jae’s solo stuff isn’t on Spotify. The track is about vague emotions that you can’t quite describe yet. It’s the emotion of feeling how everything is different with this person. You don’t know why, but it just is.


Music Videos

The first MV that dropped was the one on Jae’s eaJ YouTube channel. It’s animated video with drawings and animation done by Deisa. I think that’s pretty amazing since Deisa was a fan who did several fan animated videos to DAY6’s tracks. I love the look of it~ I think it really suits the song too.

As I said before, the song comes off a bit melancholy. Yet there’s a tinge of hopefulness? I can’t quite put my finger on it. But basically the song is sung in the perspective of two people. In Seori’s verses, she seems to be kind sick of the world and everything. She’s just kind of numb and going with the motions and not minding anything. However, that was before she met this guy. She sings of welcoming him in her room. Which shows trust. She then sings about how he’s the one she can share her sorrows with. Because it’s different with him. She doesn’t know why, but it just is. It’s similar for Jae’s part too. He seems sick and tired of everything. He alludes to people always leaving him. He says he’s fine, but it doesn’t really seem that way. Yet he never says anything as he just watched them leave. However, with this girl, he doesn’t want to passively let her go because he wants to be with her. Again, it’s different with this girl. He doesn’t know why, but again…it just is.

[Verse 1: Seori]
I’m sick of people
But at the end of the day
I don’t care
It must be fine
Even if I’m alone like this
It’ll eventually go away
Never mind
It must be fine

[Pre-Chorus: Seori]
I didn’t wanna play
I didn’t wanna date
I didn’t wanna say
I just wanna sleep
Until the day before I met you

[Chorus: Seori]
If you turn around
I’ll be right there
I’m inviting you
To my room
No matter what they say
Oh you always lit my shadow
And the one who shares my sorrow
With you with you with you it’s different
I don’t know why
It just is

[Verse 2: eaJ]
I’m tired of the same line
I heard through every grape vine
Broken rеcords screaming in time
You’ll be finе
You’ll be fine
People come and pass by
Even though I wished they stay mine
So many broken records scream in my mind
I’ll be fine

[Pre-Chorus: eaJ]
I always pushed away
Always pushed away
Scared they’d go away
So I watched them leave
Didn’t say nothing
But with you I think it’s different

[Chorus: eaJ]
If you ever tell me you gotta go
I’ll be the first to ask you where
If you say you need me no more
Then I might have to stop you there
No matter what they say oh you always lit my shadow
I’ve let love lose all of my battles
But you with you with you with you with you
It’s different
I don’t know
It just is

Honestly, the track is beautiful. I think it’s absolutely perfect. I love the music itself, the vocals, Keshi’s guitar, the vibe, everything. I can’t express it well. Like the song, I don’t know why…it just is. Anyway, what did you think of the song? Are you familiar with any of these artists? What are your favorite tracks?~ Let me know! Stay safe and have a wonderful day, BAYOG Fam!~

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
