R&B Singer JaySyd Goes Through Some Major Changez

By: Carlos Harleaux

JaySyd is constantly creating new music. That part of his musical formula has stayed the same since I was first introduced to his music a few years ago. However, his growth continues to shine through. This is especially apparent on his new release, Changez. Plus, some ladies never learn that conversations with male R&B singers often end up as preludes to a song. This is exactly the case on the album’s first track, confidently cool, “Recognize”. He makes it known that he’s not going to mindlessly chase after a woman. 

However, the smooth slow jam, “In Store” (which is one of the best songs vocally on the album), details him questioning the direction of a budding relationship. “Isolated” is one of the most introspective tracks on the album. “Even though I smile, deep inside I frown”, he sings. The song details family woes, fake friends and his internal struggles. He warns people that his music isn’t a series of albums, but diaries instead. One of the sure fire contenders for a single from his latest diary is the optimistic bass thumper, “Sacrafices”. 

JaySyd carries the bulk of Changez on his back, without any features. However, “Don’t Get It” (featuring Robin Jones) and Just Know (featuring LaVoyce) are both worth additions. The former finds JaySyd asking a woman why she’s wasting time with a guy that doesn’t deserve her. The latter is a midtempo declaration of good love at its finest. He isn’t afraid to show a lighter side on songs like “Crazy 4 U” and “New Me”.
