New York, NY (Top40 Charts) LA's rising star, Jae Stephens, has been steadily affirming her writing and production chops over the last two years, and she's flexing a new level of independent grace on her upcoming debut EP, 'f**k it i'll do it myself,' arriving this summer.

Today marks the release of one of the first visuals for the EP, a music video for "got it like that." Shot in Toronto by Director duo EST-HER and Ram, Jae serves the cryptic grin of a young woman scorned (in a ski mask) who isn't playing when she says she'll "crack a bottle on you."

Watch via Flaunt:

Praised by Nylon as an "anthem of self-empowerment," the track has roots in electronica, with Jae's voice floating effortlessly over a slow, reverberated beat. A flute-like vocal effect lurks over the song, imbuing the background to Jae's soulful falsetto with an elegance as it flits across a sea of bass and muted horns.

More on Jae Stephens:
Throughout the last few years, Jae's become an in-demand writer for other artists, spending considerable time in the studio with top and Grammy-award winning producers like Hit- Boy (Travis Scott, Beyonce), Rahki (Kendrick Lamar), Brasstracks (Chance The Rapper), J White (Cardi B), Digi (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q), Julio Bashmore (Dirty Bird Records) and Cadenza (Sean Paul, Lily Allen). She's worked with producer Jam City for her smash single "24K" that The Fader calls a "seductive ode" and also recently performed vocals alongside VanJess for Khalid's debut SNL performance.

Jae gained momentum by sharing her music on Tumblr and quickly moved to LA to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter. Drawing inspiration from old school r&b artists and gospel artists - Monica, Brandy, and Yolanda Adams - that her parents introduced her to as a child, Jae's own music has expanded widely into an explosion of pop and alternative r&b with subtle electronic influences.

Having spent substantial time in the UK, working with Bruno Major for their collaborative track "Every Time," and other London-based producers, Jae was attracted to British production styles that felt relaxed and low pressure. She felt encouraged to try several different avenues for her music, leaving her open to experimentation and significantly impacting her voice as a new artist and rising star. Jae's recently transitioned into producing all of her own records in order to achieve a truer, more cohesive and original sound.
