EXCLUSIVE: Will Jay Shares the Story Behind His New Song, “Never Been In Love”
Plus, the singer shares some advice for fans who can totally relate to the track.
By now, you’ve probably heard more than your fair share of love songs. But have you heard a “Never Been In Love” song, especially the track of the same name by Will Jay? The singer recently dropped his latest music video, which is filled with fun animations, great vibes, and a refreshing new message. YSBnow caught up with Will to hear all about how he put together the song and video, plus how find out how fans are reacting to his latest work.
YSBnow: Can you tell us about filming your new music video, and how you think the finished product brings your story to life?
Will Jay: “Never Been In Love” is a celebration of loving yourself and I wanted to do a video that, above all else, was fun. I had all the motions choreographed before I shot the video and I have to give Bruno Gowtham a shoutout for his amazing job with the animations. I think the animations mixed with the colors and overall happy vibe paints the picture well for this song.
YSBnow: What inspired you to release this song, and how has listeners’ reception been so far?
Will Jay: When I wrote this song, I had never been in love and felt like there weren’t many songs out there that made me feel good about that. Our society puts a lot of pressure on people to find love and some people just aren’t ready or have no interest in that. The reception has been overwhelmingly positive; so many people for all sorts of different reasons have connected to the song and have told me that they finally have a song they can relate to.
YSBnow: Would you be able to share some advice for our readers who either can’t relate to typical love songs, or find themselves generally underrepresented in pop culture media?
Will Jay: I would say listen to “Never Been In Love”! Haha. But also representation is out there and you’re never alone, no matter how ostracized you feel. It might take some digging, but there’s a lot of music and artists who are telling the stories you need to hear and I hope I can be one of them.
