Timing is everything.
Jax, the passionate East Brunswick songstress who finished third on “American Idol” last spring, dropped the tunes video on her debut single “La La Land” Wednesday afternoon, just hours prior to “Idol” season 15 premiere commences, at 8 p.m.
The release is smart, considering that’s how most listeners know her, though the 19-year-old’s new pop tune unexpectedly bemoans and satirizes the Hollywood glitz “Idol” will purvey.
“Everything ain’t always exactly what seems,” Jax warns within the chorus, involving verses about almost no time for sleeping, eating, being sick, or securing tickets to see relatives members. Check music chords here.
Most on the flippant lines ostensibly tackle the behind-the-scenes whirlwind of the performers’s life on the whole, but she also mentions a “finale” and voting rules are run off because the song concludes. About Jax La La Land sheet music here.
