After gaining momentum with his poignant video "Kapernick Effect," JAG looks to keep the pedal on the gas with his new record "Tap In," featuring Trey Songz

Premiering exclusively on Billboard, JAG and Songz flash their lyrical brilliance over the mellow soundscape. "I need a prayer, I just walked in the church like tap in/ She turn me down, till I pulled up with friends, I'm back in," raps the South LA MC. Songz churns out a fun-filled verse that finds the multifaceted star rapping and singing over the Bizness Boi-produced beat. "No, I won't stand for the flag when/ Police still kill black men," spews the Ready crooner. 

According to JAG, the collaboration for "Tap In" happened through a DM sent by Trey Songz after "Kapernick Effect" was released. 

“Trey had sent me a DM after I dropped 'Kapernick Effect' and really just showed me a lot of love for the video and the message behind it," says JAG. "I basically told him we gotta work one day and he told me to email something his way. I hit my guy Bizness Boi ASAP knowing he’d have some fire production in Trey's lane. After a few months of going back and forth, he hit me out of the blue one day with his number and told me to FaceTime him. When I called, he was playing his verse on the record I sent and it was a wrap after that!”
