After the releases of “LEAVE ME ALONE” and “FANCY”, Amaarae tops it with the Kojey Radical and Cruel Santino assisted “JUMPING SHIP”, a Baille Funk-sampling RnB cut that harkens back to the late 90s/early 2000s era when the sound of UK Garage commanded the utmost respect among soundsystem and club culture aficionados.
This latter day trio, far removed from the traditional structure of the form, is about leaving a current lover in pursuit of a new love interest. It’s taboo subject matter which nonetheless applies uniformly, and gets practiced, across different sectors of our society. Driven by a thumping two-step beat and cushioned in a tingling guitar loop, the song is a statement of intent and a decision to abandon love rolled into one thick, sweaty toast-up of pop mastery.
