West coast emcee J.Lately teams up with Blimes on this reflective track titled “Better One” which serves as the perfect track to relax to. Backed by a laid-back, sun-drenched instrumental courtesy of Space Cadet, the duo take time to appreciate their individual journey and struggle thus far. Far from regretting the challenges, they use their experiences to build their confidence and most importantly happiness.
The video was shot in LA by Adrian Per who goes for a minimalistic and summer-themed vibe. He focuses on the duo as they do their thing in their own element sans pressure.
“Better One” is taken from J.Lately’s album Tuesday, which is also produced entirely by Space Cadet.
