When was the last time you did something for the first time?”
-Aubrey “Drake” Graham
As we said in last month’s Fresh Meet, we’ve had our eyes on JONES since her first single “Deep”. Thus far, she’s kept a low profile online. She’s been under the radar–but we don’t think she will be for long (read: she’s AMAZING).
So before she infiltrates all your Spotify playlists and you start hearing the breathy, romantic track “Indulge” everywhere, read about a few of her FORA firsts.
YOUR FIRST BAD KISS
My first bad kiss was probably my first kiss, so awkward and unfamiliar.
YOUR FIRST DIARY
I think I was about seven or eight years old – I remember being really excited to find that there was a diary with a lock on it inside one of my easter eggs. I think my mother knew I liked writing stories so had picked that one especially. I was over the moon and carried the key with me everywhere. I still have it now.
THE FIRST CONCERT YOU ATTENDED (WITHOUT YOUR PARENTS)
The first concert I attended without my mum as a teenager was an N.E.R.D. concert at Brixton Academy in London. I had a huge crush on Pharrell Williams and made sure that I was right at the front and remember screaming till the point of losing my voice. On the way back to the train station my throat was very sore but I felt like it had been worth it.
