JT, thank you again for making my life easier as an artist. I love the writing process so much but often get stuck on lyrics. I can get the main hook and loads of ideas, but pulling into a strong narrative just feels harder to me than the rest of the writing process. Elton, has Bernnie, I got JT ;)
I keep saying the same thing every time I come to review JT because it's always so good... so easy. We work so well together. We flow. Effortless. Same taste in music. Love the same chords. Vibe the same lyrics. JT just helps me take everything to the next level. Can't recommend JT enough. Legend 🙏🏼
