brand new ex

jenna nation releases new single

 

Brand New Ex hits hard and is bound to give you that 90’s nostalgia vibe but with just the right amount of contemporary R&B feel.

She changes his name in her phone to “Brand New Ex” and blocks his number. She's over him! SHE IS DONE! She’s tired of waiting for his name to pop up on her phone. She’s tired of the late-night texts, the constant disappearing acts or just calling when he wants something. “Brand New Ex” is an anthem for all women who have been through turbulent relationships but find the strength to move on and not accept anything less than they deserve. JENNA Nation hopes to uplift women and empower other women to do the same.

Produced by Morgan Matthews (Alicia Keys, Miguel, Tory Lanez, 21 Savage, Aaron Carter and more) the song begins with a guitar riff that pays tribute to 90’s R&B artists who have influenced JENNA’s sound such as TLC and Destiny’s Child. Brand New Ex is heavily influenced by these 90’s sounds. The melody is strong and extremely catchy. The lyrics are powerful and direct. This song hits hard and is bound to give you that 90’s nostalgia feel but with just the right amount of modern day R&B.

The song emphasizes hope and love with the miracle of Christmas, highlighting how we treasure quality time with loved ones, reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas, "Let's cherish the gift that togetherness brings, a miracle, My Christmas Wish".
