Jade Latrice Discusses “The More”: How Music Became a Source of Comfort and Strength

R&B and Hip Hop artist from Chicago, Jade Latrice, is quickly becoming renowned in the music industry for her exceptional talent and captivating rhythms, especially in the recent release, “The More.” The single is complemented by a music video that explores the emotional difficulties, anxieties, and uncertainties that arise when one undergoes life changes and surrenders their grip on certain aspects of their life.

Latrice explains that her single, "The More," reflects on the idea that life can lead two individuals in opposite directions, such as going away to college or chasing personal aspirations. It is a bittersweet experience because one has to leave loved ones behind to grow as an individual. The song emphasizes the desire to hold onto those cherished relationships and not let them fade away, even as one pursues personal growth.

The music video of "The More" was skillfully crafted by Makeba Riddick-Woods of Young Dreamers Agency and Cheo Green of Vector Management, capturing the essence of preserving relationships while pursuing individual goals and dreams. The video carries a positive tone that aligns with the song's theme and resonates with the audience.

“As I am growing, I am understanding that in life, we go through things, and we are not alone. My overcoming this is the fact that I can share my creativity with my fans and to express that we are all in this together in hope that my music inspires the world to overcome any obstacles or challenges that come your way and to keep pushing through it all,” explains Latrice.

She also says: “As a creator, we are in our head a whole lot and we want to present something that our fans can relate to and enjoy. I want my music to give that story, to feel the emotion and to vibe out to it. Music is my therapeutic outlet, and I would hope to inspire by sharing my vision.”

Finding inspiration in icons like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Aaliyah, Ella Mai, Whitney Houston, Brandy, Mary J, and Lauryn Hill, Latrice incorporates elements of R&B, soulful melodies, upbeat rhythms, and hip-hop influences into her tracks. Jade’s personal favorite from her past releases is "The More," a song that exemplifies her growth and vulnerability as an artist, thanks to its captivating storyline and relatable message.
