Track of the Day: Jai Paul – Crush

Everyone’s now aware of the saga that is the ‘is it or is it not’ Jai Paul debut album. Earlier today XL released a statement denying that the uploaded ‘album’ was legit – insisting that it was in fact a series of unfinished demos. I say, whatever, the demos are still better than a large amount of the Top 40 right now, and I can’t stop listening to his cover of Jennifer Paige’s ‘Crush’ – that song basically soundtracked the whole of 1998 for me.

So Jai Paul, take your time on the ‘actual’ debut, I’m perfectly happy with the demos for now.
