Mama I’m Sorry: J-Soul’s new single is an apology to all the women in his life

Toronto, ON – Toronto Cash Money recording artist J-Soul recently released a new single titled “Mama I’m Sorry” to coincide with Mother’s Day last weekend.

The song was produced by Prezident Jeff and MSA, and was released after Mother’s Day earlier this week. “Mama I’m Sorry” is an honest, raw look at J-Soul’s relations with the females in his life – his mom, his grandmother, and all the girls who’ve fallen in love with him over the years. This is the first single J-Soul has released since “Mod Ting” in February. And it’s arguably one of J-Soul’s saddest, most emotive releases to date.

Part of the track was penned as more-or-less of an open letter to J’s mother and grandmother. He apologizes for everything he’s done over the years that he feels makes him less-than as a son: drinking too much, feeling and acting types of ways, and not going to college. The other part of the song is a warning for all the girls who want to lock J down; he needs someone who is just as crazy and broken as he is.

As the track plays out, it seems like the song is actually less about J apologizing to the women in his life, and more about him trying to come to terms with himself. The song is J’s platform to air out all of his guilt and remorse. And even though the song is framed as an apology to the females, it sounds like J is just trying to find a way to forgive himself.
