♪ To touch

♪ To grab

Come on!

♪ To have

♪ Warming up to the idea

♪ Of owning it all

♪ See, all you want is

Hi, I'm Taylor Simone.

I'm Jett. And...

We're Jazze Belle. ...we're Jazze Belle.

♪ But you can't own me, nah

♪ But you can't own me

Coming up with Jazze Belle was kind of a snap decision.

We were like, "Yo, this one kind of works.

Like, what if we just started it?"

And that's probably one of the most, like, snap decisions

I've ever made, but it's probably the best one, too.

♪ I'm in awe of what I'm living ♪

It was my first time actually, like,

really working with a songwriter.

It was a great experience.

I mean, it still is a great experience

just playing with her.

♪ More than any other can

♪ And yeah

♪ It's real

I play piano. I have, like, a piano background,

so I was just used to writing all the music,

playing piano and singing,

and so it was a new thing to be collaborating

with a producer with, like, a drum background,

and I think that created new stuff that we liked

and we just wanted to keep on doing.

I love playing drums in general.

Seeing people's reaction and just hearing feedback like,

"Wow. That works great," like, it feels good.

He'll come up with, like, a very bare-bones beat.

♪♪

And I like it bare-bones so I can, like,

flesh out the lyrics of it. Go around it.

Yeah, and then he'll come back around

and add color to what I've written,

and we kind of just tag team it.

♪ And it feels like

Can y'all sing that with me?

You guys can do that.

♪ And it feels like

We're a duo, but we play a lot with the people on stage,

Paul, Henny, Syl, Bria.

They're our family and our friends,

so, yes, it's a duo,

but when we play live, they're our homeys,

and we've been playing with them for years.

♪ What we wanted

I feel like we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.

They're probably more important than I am.

Aw!

You're okay.

♪ All that I got, thinking that ♪

When people hear our music, I just hope they feel good,

they feel empowered or they feel loved.

I think that music is a service, right?

You know, it's to resonate

with something that's going on with their lives,

so maybe someone is here that needs to hear this

or, like, feels better that it's been said.
