About “WYD Now?”
Jean first released a snippet of “WYD Now?” in a Tik Tok on October 26th. The Tik Tok now has 1.1 million views and over 240,000 likes. On the Tik Tok Jean wrote, “wrote this about realizing you still want to be with that person!” Her friend and fellow musician, David Alexander, insists she sends the song to her last love. Jean captions the Tik Tok “Should I send this to him??”
During the first verse of this song, Jean sings about missing her past lover and how she has been looking for someone new. The first verse ends with “You set the bar above the moon so” before diving into the chorus where Jean sings,
“I don’t wanna be 20 something/And still in my head about/17 in my bedroom talking/You said that by now we’d/Paint the walls of our shared apartment/You’re still everything I want and/I think we could work it out/So what are you doin’ now?”
There is no doubt when it comes to deciding whether Sadie Jean is a terrific songwriter. In the second verse, Jean sings about her future and her past lovers as well. Jean sings, “Now that the future doesn’t feel so far/It doesn’t seem as wrong to want what’s ours.” For “WYD Now?,” Jean made sure to include a powerful bridge where she sings, “Are you with somebody?/Should I even care/Know you’re not as happy/As when I was there/In your faded t-shirt/That I’ve kept this long/I still hear you laughing/When I put it on I know.”
In an Instagram post Jean said, “This song means everything to me. I’m so happy and terrified to finally share all of it with you.” Listen below to hear the full track and sing your heart out!
