Abby Jasmine delivered her first music of 2021 with the emotional and reflective “SOS.” The song shows the Staten Island native delving deeper into singing and songwriting with a hazy, harmonic track. The single follows up late 2020’s deluxe edition of Who Cares, Jasmine’s expanded nine-track EP, which featured Guapdad4000, Kash Juliano, and Smoke DZA. Listen to “SOS” by Abby Jasmine HERE.
“When I wrote the song, I had this visual of me drowning,” Abby shares. She says she applied the sinking effect to drowning in feelings, addictions, and relationships. This idea inspired a dreamy song that sounds like its title. “I know I got something to say with you; I get tired of saving you,” Abby sings while checking a romantic partner on their behavior. The melody and harmony in the chorus reflect Jasmine’s heavy listening diet of early 2000s R&B.
About Abby Jasmine
Recording since she was a toddler, Abby Jasmine belongs to a musical family, with a Jazz musician for a father. By her teens, the Staten Island native flexed her music and her strong personality online. She reached millions through Vine, showing aspects of her life intermixed with singing and freestyles. Social media became a launchpad to a music career. In the late 2010s, she released Trap Mom and follow-up EPs: Abbnormal and I Hate You All. Songs like “No Hook” and “Relax” presented a woman with a slick pen, dreamy vocals, and a Big Apple attitude. Both achieved nearly seven figures in streams. Jonny shipes’ Cinematic Music Group signed Abby. By 2020’s sophomore LP Who Cares? Geffen joined in, drawn by the artist who continued to show range.
Now 23, Abby continues to focus on her craft and be a student of life. “I’ve just been taking time out to self-reflect, spend more time with people that matter to me,” the artist says. After prioritizing herself, Abby Jasmine’s time for reflection eventually returned her to the studio, where Jasmine self-recorded personal and bold music, beginning with “SOS.” Now, with her EP I Hate You 2 on the way and with three major US festivals in her future, the buzzing genre purveyor only continues to prove that she’s someone to pay attention to in 2021.
