We caught up with the rising star to find out how he came up with the tongue-in-cheek premise, and to get to know the man behind the madness. Taking us behind the scenes of his new music video, BabyJake gives us an exclusive look at the process of making the decadent visuals for ‘Do I Fit In Your Shoes’. Scroll down to hear more…
Where did you draw inspiration from for ‘Do I Fit In Your Shoes’?
When coming up with the video concept, I was really just looking to portray the greed that music executives often have in this industry. It’s my personal representation of greed & gluttony. As far as the executive Jake sitting across from the actually BabyJake goes, that was all Reggie’s idea. Once they came to me with that final concept I knew it was wrapped on this one.
What message do you want people to take away from it?
My personal representation of greed & gluttony throughout the music industry as a whole. I’ve been through a lot of highs & lows already in my short time being an artist & have realized that a lot of things are fucked up in this space. The song is clearly me taking a dig at that & putting it out there. I’m sure many artists will relate.
How has your sound evolved over the years?
Oh boy, what a question. Generally speaking, I want to charge headfirst into Rock & Roll. True Rock & Roll. Honestly, I don’t even feel like this record is the full evolution of my sound yet. Sure, artists go through phases… But I really feel like this coming album is transitioning me fully to where I feel most confident in my music. You’ll start to hear the real BabyJake come out.
What’s next for you?
An album. I’ve already finished the whole thing & we’re planning out the following single releases now. I’m really excited & can’t wait to show the world what I’ve been working on for the past year or so. I went through a complete reboot as a human & as an artist so I feel this will be the first project I fully feel in tune with. Again, super excited for everyone’s ears to get on it & to hear the feedback.
