Tequila Time

Jax jones

So like, if you made it this far, thanks for listenin' all the way through
I feel like you deserve a goodie bag or a medal, so drop me a DM
And if you're at a barbecue or some other social gathering
And you left your preferred streaming service running through by accident
Sorry, but there's gonna be a bit of talking

But at least it's a fire beat in the background, so please hear me out, yeah?
See my name Jax Jones come from a UK slang
On your Jax Jones, needing to do something on your own
And here we are at the end of my first album, and boy, mum was wrong
See, so many people came together to make these musical snacks
And I wanna thank 'em

First up, my influences, shout out Pharrell, Timothy Mosby
Thomas VanGogh Ter, Guy-Manuel, Kanye
Armand, Mark Kinchin, Dizzee, Hot Natured, and Booka Shade
Your bassline changed everything, guys
I was still doing gigs for a couple hundred pounds
Driving up and down with my wife just tryna pay the rent

And it's a journey, and that leads me on to the songwriters
And producers and artists I've collaborated with
RAYE, Jin Jin, The Dream Team, Mike Dunn
Jamie, Martin Solveig, Becky Hill, Emenike, Camille, South London's finest
Mabel, Ina, Brett, Olly, Demi, Stefflon, Bebe, Jess
Tove, Madison, Will, Fred, Tieks, Boy Matthews, Steve Mac
Wow, special mention to the MVP, Mark Ralph. It's tequlia time, bro, 'rriba!

Lucian, thanks for always believing in me and helping me perfect the beat
Adam Diamond, if it wasn't for you
I wouldn't know what I know, so thank you, bro
I still think fondly about the music we made together
My whole team and the label, man like Jamie Spiggs who took a chance on us
Dan, thanks for always dreaming big
To my family, to my wife, you're the reason we made it, babe
I'm thankful music has changed our life, but it wasn't always easy

When people ask me what does this album mean to me
It's for everyone that didn't believe
That guy that said I couldn't produce, well that ain't true
That guy that said I'll never finish a record on my own, that ain't true
I proved them wrong
So when you listen to this album
Feel that positive energy in every beat, every vocal
I know no matter how far you are away from your dreams
You can get there, fam, peace

What you, what you gon' do?
