Jazz Cartier is back! Just a few days into the new year and the Toronto MC has landed the first Zane Lowe World Record of 2017, which he used to launch his first single ‘Tempted‘. The bouncy mid-tempo number follows Jazz’s temptations to touch his lover in the club. “I think I just fell in love// It may be you or the drugs.” he raps throughout. ‘Tempted‘ forms the introductory track of Jazz‘s forthcoming Fleurever release which is due in the first quarter of 2017.
But this classically steely new track doesn’t ride rap’s current wave of dancehall-inspired directions in the slightest. “[I’m] just trying to expand my sound and reach as many people as [possible],” Cartier said of Fleurever when he spoke to Zane Lowe.
Cartier is looking to top his incredible efforts last year which saw him drop Hotel Paranoia and a string of successful singles, by embarking on his third European Tour, and releasing even more visuals. While we wait for all of the drops to come listen to ‘Tempted‘ below and check out what went down when we linked up with Jazz for #LostCultureMeets.
