Artist to watch Jillian Jacqueline continued her stellar streak of single releases on Friday with “Bleachers,” a creative, pop-heavy ode to individuality and acceptance. Jacqueline, along with cowriters Trent Dabbs and Tofer Brown, combines clever high school cliches with witty post-grad wisdom – “If I’ve learned a thing it’s kings and queens don’t mean a thing” – and effectively encourages her listeners to drop superficial stereotypes and celebrate the idea that it all adds up in the end.
The pop production is spot on, augmenting Jacqueline’s effortless vocals, and the playful cheerleader-esque flair of the “B-L-E-A-C-H-E-R-S” in the chorus never feels childish or overworked. The track is catchy and innovative, again solidifying Jacqueline’s status as a pop-country star in the making. Watch the video below:
Key Lyrics: “We’re all a little bit of hallelujah and heathen / We all add up to something with our odds and our evens.”
