“‘Wish I Could’ is one of the most meaningful songs I’ve ever written,” says J-Sol. “Many people don’t know I lost my mum through a stroke that was caused by cancer in April 2015. It’s something I’ve tried to forget yet struggled to come to terms with.”
He continues, “I wrote half the song then scrapped it because I lost my passion for music. I went to LA recently where I met someone and fell in love. No matter how hard I tried, nothing I did was good enough. I lost and betrayed myself to the point where I was saying things that were completely out of my character. When I got back to London, I reflected on my regrets which inspired me to finish the song ‘Wish I Could.'”
With “Sober” and “Wish I Could” out, we’re hoping to hear news about J-Sol’s forthcoming project.
