Jess Connelly has finally released her much-anticipated mixtape, JCON.
The 13-track mixtape is the follow up to her Wait EP with CRWN from 2016. For her latest release, the r&b songstress reunites with frequent collaborators CRWN and Lustbass, and teams up with fellow Boiler Room Manila alum, Eyedress, and San Francisco-based rapper and producer, P-Lo.
Throughout the years, Jess has graced multiple music festivals and opened for top international acts like Macklemore, Kehlani, and most recently, Chance The Rapper. This year, Jess sets her sights beyond the Philippines, starting with a stint at Jakarta's Hodgepodge Superfest. "I'm sure everyone wants to play at Coachella, that's an obvious one. But the other one would be Fuji Rock Festival," Jess adds.
Before the JCON listening party, we sat down with Jess as she took us through each track of her latest offering, what she refers to as her "launch into the global scene, the [international] music industry".
