Dinah Jane Introduces Herself With Three New Songs
UPDATE: Dinah Jane 1 is here. Listen to the last song – “Heard It All Before” – and stream the EP in full below.
Last year Dinah Jane launched her solo career with the mega-infectious “Bottled Up.” Featuring vocals from Ty Dolla $ign and Marc E. Bassy, the vibrant bop paid tribute to her roots in Fifth Harmony with a couple clever references to earlier hits (“Work From Home” and “Worth It”). Not only that, but it more than proved the 21-year-old had what it takes to make it on her own. Since then she’s teased fans with a couple new songs during live performances. But tomorrow (April 19), she takes the next step with the release of her debut EP. And the new music serves as a fitting introduction to the pop star’s inner thoughts.
The EP – it appears to be titled Dinah Jane 1 – doesn’t officially premiere until midnight. However, Dinah graciously rolled out two of the three songs a little early. And both are serious wins. The first to arrive – “Pass Me By” – is a moody slow burner. Over a sensual production, the hitmaker teases a potential partner with the promise of at least an hour of paradise. “Make our moment,” she coos. However, there’s a catch. They need to make their decision in the blink of an eye. It’s hot, but the second song – “Fix It” – is an instant scene-stealer. The confessional ballad boasts a powerful message and cuts very, very deep.
One more song – “Heard It All Before” – and a music video arrive tomorrow. Dinah opened up about the project in a tweet. “I’ve put so much thought emotion and time into this mini ‘bundle’ not only for you guys, but for myself. The longer I held on to these records the less of a chance I’d ever bring em to light,” she wrote. “I hand picked these 3 records specifically because this is where my head and heart is rn.” Press play on “Pass Me By” and “Fix It” below and pre-save the collection on Spotify here. Make sure to keep an eye on this post because we’ll upload it with “Heard It All Before” once it is made available.
