It's almost been a year since we heard something new from Fil-Aussie artist Jess Connelly and now on her birthday, she drops a new song, "Better" to celebrate! The lo-fi and R&B track stays true to her mellow roots with sultry vocals and lyrics speaking on a strong relationship where that one person knows you better than anyone else.
We first saw something cooking when the R&B singer made changes to her Instagram account and left us hanging with a fresh feed and post saying new music is on the way. There's no other way to celebrate a birthday other than dropping a new single! We hope more music is brewing or a video is on the way, but until then check out the snippet below or listen to the full version on most streaming platforms.
