The Figure It Out EP was announced exclusively by Jai during an interview on the Beats 1‘s Travis Mills show in Los Angeles this April. Commenting on the EP, Jai shared, “This
EP is a body of work that came together through a bunch of sessions
with my producer James, it’s the first solid work we’ve done together
and it was really just a lot of experimenting and getting to know each
other. It’s a step into this new direction and has a couple more urban
tracks on there, and a couple of straighter pop vibes.”
Australian recording artist and social media sensation Jai Waetford releases today his new single “Honestly” featuring Carmouflage Rose. The track is available now on all digital service providers worldwide via RED MUSIC/Sony Music Australia. Co-written alongside Rose, “Honestly” is a contemporary hybrid of R&B and pop produced by James Angus who also produced Jai’s 2018 official single “Friends” that has clocked 2.5 million streams and debuted on 16 international New Music Friday playlists on Spotify.

Jai will be returning to the U.S. in April on an extensive promotional trip while also reconnecting with his U.S. fan base.
Reflecting on his new single and collaboration with Carmouflage Rose, Jai says, “‘Honestly’ is about seeing the good in a particular relationship and wanting to spend time on getting it right instead of just bailing when things get hard. Carmouflage Rose’s mind is so creative and naturally talented, his ideas and melodies are so far from what I’m used to that it pushes me to think on the spot and I think that’s how this song came together.”
Australian recording artist and social media sensation Jai Waetford is pleased to announce today the release of his new single, “Friends,” available now on all digital service providers worldwide via Sony Music Australia. CLICK HERE to listen to the song from the budding pop star that has amassed a combined social media following of 2.2 million, achieved 405 million worldwide streams, scored an ARIA-Gold certified top 10 hit with his debut single, toured alongside international superstars Selena Gomez and Little Mix, and headlined his own sold out tour
in his home country. Jai Waetford is poised for a breakout year as
“Friends” marks his first official single to be released in 2018.
“Friends” is co-written by Jai with James Angus (Carmouflage Rose, Tigerilla, Tkay Maidza) who also produced the record. “James and I were trying to find a sound that mashed urban drums with pop instrumentation and vocal melody,” explains Jai of the collaboration. “We then stumbled across this beat James had made a while back, ran with it, and ended up really digging the result.” “‘Friends’ was inspired by situations where the online world and the real world collide. Often people say things online that they wouldn’t say in real life, and ‘Friends’ is about that scenario.”
Not satisfied with simply staying within the realm of music and television, Jai Waetford, the digital savvy 19-year-old recording artist hailing from Australia, has been building his ever-growing online empire that now encompasses more than 880K YouTube, 655K Facebook, 510K Instagram, and 200K Twitter followers. He currently boasts 355,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
