Music Monday|eaJ (Jae of DAY6) x keshi — pillows

SURPRISE BAYOG FAM! I came to drop a bonus Music Monday post!~ I’ll make it really short though~ My bonus track recommendation for today is “pillows” by eaJ (Jae of DAY6) and keshi~ I just loved the track so much, so I really wanted to share it with y’all! Also, it is all in English~

Jae is an awkward, but funny dude.

This is my second eaJ recommendation for Music Monday~ The first one was a previous Music Monday post with [it just is]. eaJ is Park Jae Hyung, or simply known as Jae. No, he’s not that [Jay Park (Park Jae Bum)] who also used to be a [K-Pop idol under JYP]. He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, then moved to California during his early childhood. He was took a leave from university to compete in the first season of K-Pop Star. He ended up being eliminated in sixth place. However, he ended up being signed under JYP Entertainment. Jae then became a member of the K-Pop rock band (like actual band with instruments) [DAY6]. DAY6 is signed to Studio J, which is a sublabel under JYP Entertainment. However, Jae does work on some solo projects under the name eaJ. I believe his solo stuff has been released through 88rising. 88rising is known for also supporting Asian American and Asian artists such as Dumbfoundead, Joji, Rich Brian (who also [featured Jae before]), NIKI, and Stephanie Poetri. They’ve also supported English releases from other K-Pop arists like Chungha, CL, and Jackson Wang of JYP Entertainment’s K-Pop group GOT7. Unfortunately, Jae’s eaJ tracks are unavailable on Spotify. I know, I’m really sad about it. Aside from music, he used to be a host of a program called After School Club with Jamie (formerly Park Jimin and a member of JYP Entertainment’s 15&) and Kevin Woo (formerly of U-KISS) from 2016-2018. He currently hosts a podcast under DIVE Studios called [How Did I Get Here]. Fellow K-Pop singer AleXa was later added as his official co-host. Some of my favorite DAY6 tracks: [Zombie] (including the [English Version]), [혼자야(All Alone)], [누군가 필요해 (I Need Somebody)], [예뻤어(You Were Beautiful)], and [Congratulations]. As for eaJ tracks, y’all know I loved [it just is]; Which featured keshi’s strat. My other favorites are: [Pacman], [50 proof], and [LA TRAINS]. I also really liked DPR Live’s recently released [Jam & Butterfly] which featured Jae an Crush (whom y’all know I love).

keshi is a popular Asian-American singer, songwriter, and producer. His real name is Casey Luong, and he’s from Texas. He originally started making music and posting it on SoundCloud when he was in college. His music, which was mostly fell under lo-fi, became pretty popular online. In 2017, he quit his job as a nurse to sign with Island Records and pursue music fulltime. His most well-known tracks, and some of my favorites, are: [2soon], [skeletons], [like i need u], [right here], [always], [blue], and most recently [B.Y.S.]. On a side note, I really love [these live performances] of his most well known tracks.

Artist: eaJ (Jae of DAY6) x keshi
Single: pillows
Genre: K-Pop, Ballad, R&B
Language: English
Release: 2020

The video/track was released on December 3rd on Jae’s [eaJ YouTube channel]. It’s funny because when “it just is” dropped, I remember thinking, “Oh~ He featured keshi on guitar! It’d be cool if they released a track together!” BOOM. I love this being a collab between two Asian-American artists. This track was written by both Jae and keshi. It’s like an R&B ballad? Y’all, I’m not that knowledgeable in music…I just know what I like. I love how you can definitely hear keshi’s signature sound and songwriting in this track. I’ve always loved Jae’s voice and keshi’s voice. They always gave me similar vibes and feelings. I don’t know if I could say that their tones are really similar, but I always felt like their voices had some similarities. I just really love both their singing styles. I find them both really soothing to listen to. Jae’s slightly raspy voice goes well with keshi’s smooth and slightly lighter vocals.

I also really loved the lyrics. I could really relate to Jae’s parts in particular. The song is basically about someone feeling loneliness as they’re only accompanied by their tear soaked pillow. It’s about wanting to receive and provide comfort.

Unfortunately, “pillows” can only be found on YouTube.

The music video was pretty interesting.

[Chorus: eaJ]
Give me your loneliness and I’ll give you mine
Leave all your tears by your bedside, and let’s live a night
I know you feel a mess and your pillow won’t dry
Come lay on me and step in, no mind


[Verse 1: eaJ]
To the voice in your head
Pulling old memories
Making their circles around your bed
Late A.M. is always when they try and start their run
So come to me when no demons come


[Chorus: eaJ]
Give me your loneliness and I’ll give you mine
Leave all your tеars by your bedside, and let’s livе a night
I know you feel a mess and your pillow won’t dry
You come lay on me instead for a night


[Post-Chorus: eaJ]
(So the pillows) dry themselves off and
We can go home
(After) this is all done
(And) wet them once more
(We’ll) live all night long
(And) we can go home
(After) this is all done
(And) keep hoping for more


[Verse 2: keshi]
Come over, tell me about it
Come closer, dance around what you wanted to say
But I know what you came for
Give you what you came for
Shawty know better than to tempt me
I’ma give it every way you tell me to
I’ma take it slow like candy
Baby girl, let me know if you wanna take two
Side to side wit’ it
Ride or die wit’ it, you don’t gotta hide wit’ it
Way too many options, you need somethin’ constant
You need somethin’ that you can hold on to
‘Til then I’ll hold onto you


[Chorus: eaJ]
Give me your loneliness and I’ll give you mine
Leave all your tears by your bedside, and let’s live a night
I know you feel a mess and your pillow won’t dry (Dry)
You come lay on me instead for a night


[Post-Chorus: eaJ]
(So the pillows) dry themselves off and
We can go home
(After) this is all done and wet them once more
We’ll live all night long
And we can go home after
This is all done and keep hoping for more
On wet pillows

Again, I absolutely love the lyrics. I immediately loved the sound of the track when I first heard it. The lyrics definitely cemented my love for it though. I just really relate to it. Y’all know I got some serious insomnia, plus anxiety and depression. There are nights where I’m just suddenly hit with a feeling of loneliness, helplessness, and I just feel overwhelmed with myself. It’s a hard feeling to really describe. It’s also tough because it’s hard to lean on people, so you end up drowning in these vague but overwhelming feelings. I’ve definitely had nights where I just felt really lonely for no reason and just cried myself to sleep. However, there are other people who feel the same way. It’s hard to deal with your own loneliness, but can be easier to comfort someone else in their time of loneliness. It’s kind of comforting to know that you’re not alone, and that there’s someone who can understand that loneliness without any needing any explanations.

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.
