J Sutta Shares 'I Say Yes' Title Track Before Album Drop: Exclusive Premiere
From Pussycat Doll to certified solo star, J Sutta has been on a journey to release her debut full-length album. The singer-songwriter-dancer (who formerly went by Jessica Sutta) is gearing up to release I Say Yes on March 3, but is giving fans one last surprise ahead of its drop by unveiling the slinky title track, which Billboard is proud to bring you first.
Get your weekend started off right with the Rico Love-featuring cut that's a dive into deep house with an undeniable, harmony-driven chorus. The empowering lyrics likely connect to Sutta's story as a backup dancer who joined the platinum-selling girl group the Pussycat Dolls before navigating through different sounds and labels as a solo artist, eventually securing I Say Yes. "I say, I say yes / Even when the world says no / I say, I say yes / When you're high and when you're low," Sutta and Love croon together. Listen below:
"'No.' That is a word that I have heard more times than any other," Sutta tells Billboard behind the song's inspiration. "Every day we are told 'no' to our dreams, 'no' to our ambitions, 'no' to our ideas and excitement. 'I Say Yes' is about unwavering determination and faith in yourself...The meaning behind this song really hit home with me and when it came time to name the album it was just the clear-cut choice that probably represents a journey relatable to most."
The album comes at the perfect time for J Sutta, who just recently secured her latest No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart with the single "Distortion" topping the chart dated Feb. 18, 2017. The glitchy dance track followed Sutta's past No. 1s on Dance Club Songs that included "Show Me" from 2011, plus two collaborations with Dave Audé: 2007's "Make It Last" and 2015's "I'm Gonna Get You."
