Jay Kay Wants To Make Music To Make People Happy

The Star spoke with Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay about his musical mission where he admitted, “I’ve always wanted to make music that keeps people happy. I’ve had my fair share of love troubles this year. As long as you reflect what happens in your lives through the lyrics, that’s fine because that’s what songs are about – putting over what happens to you and your life and hoping that people can have those same experiences themselves and get something out of it.”

Jay Kay Talks About Denise Van Outen Song

Cyclone of Beat.com.au spoke with Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay to get his thoughts on the song ‘Little L’ which was written about his ex Denise Van Outen. Jay Kay admits, “It was just one of those things that hit me so strongly, I had to write it; that was what I felt, exactly word for word, and word for word is what I wrote down. Me and Denise still talk to each other. We laugh about it. She says, ‘I can’t get away from that fu**ing song!’ (laughs) But you gotta write these things. Once the press and all the rest of it have cleared over and the tune is still there to hear in two years, that will have been forgotten about, but you gotta write things you feel. You can’t just make it up as you go along – can you?”
