Big Jade can eat any instrumental put in front of her, but she has a special affection for the trunk-rattling trap she grew up with in East Texas. Annihilating a DJ Chose instrumental for a new anthem, Jade shares “Lower,” her new video single. Blessed with DJ Chose’s subsonic bass and skull-shaking snares, Jade twirls a new tune for the twerkers, urging her fellow baddies to get as low as they can while spitting sexually explicit and empowering bars:
“Don’t need a n****, I get money I get bread/It ain’t no pressure, b*tch, I said what I said.”
Directed by Dang Films, the video for “Lower” takes inspiration from The Players Club, one of Jade’s favorite films. In the video, Jade takes the role of both Dolla Bill (famously played by Bernie Mac) and Diamond (originally played by Lisa Raye). Showing many sides of her personality: she can be a fast-talking tomboy, or a sultry seductress, depending on her mood, the video doesn’t lack entertainment.
“Lower” is the Beaumont native’s second release of 2022, following “Eat,” an expansive collaboration with Houston legend Z-Ro. “Eat” arrived after a red-hot 2021 that helped to cement her as one of the best emcees to watch. Jade’s breakout year started with the release of her debut album Pressure, available everywhere via Alamo Records.
