Listen to Jesse Saint John’s massive new bop WHAT DO U LIKE

Jesse Saint John has unveiled the first official single from his upcoming debut EP.

WHAT DO U LIKE is another catchy synthpop-bop from the American singer-songwriter, who’s best known for penning tracks for artists such as Britney Spears, Charli XCX, Camila Cabello and Kim Petras.

“The whole project is about how we distract ourselves from the lingering pain of daily life, but it’s sexy dance music,” Jesse told us of his EP. “WHAT DO U LIKE is especially about giving yourself over to seeking validation from someone else. It’s my favourite thing I’ve ever done.”

When we spoke to Jesse earlier this year, he discussed the importance of queer perspectives in music.

“We are consumers of music and pop culture, and for myself, I’ve always not felt represented in the media,” he told us. “I’ve always looked at things that were like, gay entertainment, and I was like, ‘That’s not really me, that’s not my gay experience’.

“Once there’s more queer filmmakers, songwriters and musicians, the more likely they are to reach an audience of queer, LGBTQ people and marginalised groups that they can identify with.”

WHAT DO U LIKE is available now on iTunes and streaming services.
