Rising singer and songwriter, JALISA REY, recently released her anticipated sophomore EP, “MIXY“. MIXY, the soul-stirring EP by JALISA REY, is the reflection of an emotional whirlwind that has recently engulfed her life. It’s a journey of conflicting emotions – from highs to lows, from longing to detachment, all caused by this thing called love.
Throughout MIXY, the 7-track EP with production from Pagani, and JulesTheWulf, and collabs from the pen of Dom Mayo and Karrissa Love, JALISA REY invites listeners to experience the unfiltered emotions that have defined her recent journey through life- a mixture of love, regrets, desires, and everything in between. “I am excited for the world to continue to see my growth and versatility as an artist,” mentions Jalisa.
The EP kicks off with “FSW,” an anthem that encapsulates Jalisa’s current state: “I want you, but you’re too damn toxic… I don’t want to share you with nobody.” “It mirrors the struggle of knowing what’s bad for you but irresistibly yearning for it at the same time- a sentiment that many can relate to. In the midst of such emotional turmoil, conflicts then lead to Jalisa crossing the line, which is beautifully captured in her track “Cross the Line.” This song is carried by deep regrets and Jalisa’s desire to mend things after a heated dispute. “I know you probably think I’m crazy, but I’m still on you,” Jalisa confesses, embodying the complexity of her emotions.
As the EP continues to unfold, Jalisa takes listeners on a thrilling ride with “How I Like It“. In this song, featuring YSL member T-Shyne, she admits to deliberately fueling arguments for the thrill of the passionate makeup sex that follows. She then leads us to “Rounds“, a dose of sultry sensuality, offering listeners a temporary escape from the emotional rollercoaster. Right on track however, the EP inevitably swings back to “No Feelings,” a heartrending ballad about partying without remorse, which clearly reveals that Jalisa is still entangled in her emotions.
She continues to pour her heart out in the next song entitled “Bad Thing,” where she expresses feelings of vulnerability, but her partner devalues her worth, the love has turned sour, and she’s chosen to finally leave. As the EP draws to a close, Jalisa takes us full circle with “On My Own Wave“, portraying her journey through life’s challenges. It’s a testament to her resilience and determination to find her way, even during the toughest moments.
