Get to Know 'Up All Night' Singer Baker Grace With These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Baker Grace is one of the rising music acts we’ve got our eyes on, and we want Just Jared readers to get to know her better!

The 19-year-old New York City-based singer-songwriter just released her latest single, “Up All Night,” on Wednesday (July 1), which was produced by Cautious Clay.

“’Up All Night’ is about how too often we judge people or a group of people without getting the chance to know them. Everybody has a story and I think it’s important to take the time to understand each other and become more compassionate, so we can learn, grow, and heal together,” she says.

The song, along with previous releases “Pops” and “Bottle of Wine,” will appear on Grace‘s forthcoming Yourz Truly EP, due out on August 28, following her 2019 debut, the Girl, I Know EP.

“Each song is a letter to myself or to somebody else, because writing letters has always been one of the best ways for me to be completely truthful. It allows me to get down to the core of what I want to say, which is the main goal in all my music: to be as raw and honest as possible,” she says of the upcoming release.

Watch Soko Perform 'Are You A Magician?' in a Virtual House (Exclusive)

Soko is sharing an exciting, live performance of her new song “Are You A Magician?” exclusively for Just Jared readers.

“I’ve never actually played “Are you a Magician?” live with my band,” shared the French singer/songwriter. “And because of quarantine, we couldn’t actually record all together online because of bad internet connections, so we had to figure out a way to each play individually in our house, in different rooms. I was singing in my baby’s toy karaoke mic! So the video is all of us playing in different room of a little doll house, in reference to the official music video for the song directed by Gia Coppola.”

Soko also recently released her first song ever in French with her newest track “Blasphémie”. Listen to the erotic, dramatic, and poetic song here!

Out July 10th, Soko‘s upcoming third album, Feel Feelings, explores the complexities of life while tapping into the remarkable accessibility to emotion that she has shown throughout her career.

Get to Know 'Levitate' Indie-Pop Singer Julietta With These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Julietta is one of the acts on the rise we’ve our eyes on, and we want Just Jared readers to get to know her better!

The indie-pop singer just dropped her new song, “Levitate,” on Wednesday (June 17), which is also the title track from her forthcoming EP.

“‘Levitate’ means the world to me. I wrote it with Jordan Topf and Sean Silverman when I moved to Los Angeles and began to shed the layers I had been carrying for my whole life,” she explains.

“I left everything and everyone I knew behind in New York to start over. At times it was very lonely and other times exhilarating. ‘Levitate’ is a song about choosing your own story and choosing what to tell people vs. what they think they know about you. And above it all, understanding that at the end I’ll always be left with me myself and I – so let go of all the bulls–t and hold yourself up.”

The Levitate EP follows her 2018 debut, Smooth Sailing. Julietta‘s already impressively racked up over 6 million streams, as well as being featured on Spotify’s Viral 50 and Indie Pop playlists, among others.

Listen to “Levitate” and check out 10 Fun Facts

  • 1. I have a phobia of some fruits, the strongest one is my phobia of bananas. They legit make me uncomfortable, and I have a hard time touching them. I’ve never really held one for longer than a couple of seconds, and I’ve never had a bite. I know how they taste because I’ve accidentally had them in smoothies. Don’t know why but I turn into a 4 year old that refuses to eat their veggies when someone tries to get me to take a bite!
  • 2. I have another weird phobia. Phobia of beer. I have never tried one. I feel like I’ve smelled it off of people enough to know I’m not into it. I’m a wine lover, that’s enough for me.
  • 3. My whole family is Sicilian, which also means there hasn’t been one divorce in the family…like ever. When you commit to la famiglia – you commit!
  • 4. I didn’t speak English till I was 5, Italian is my first language. My neighbors thought my parents were very strange as I was born and raised in New York City but didn’t speak a word of their language. My family wanted to make sure I was truly Italian before turning into a New Yorker!
  • 5. My grandparents on both sides had arranged marriages.
