I don't know why this pops up on every Jay Som post we do but again for the people in the back: 'Turn Into' is a demo collection (has been referred to as "a collection of 'finished & unfinished songs'" since it came out), 'Everybody Works' is her proper debut album. It's not like we don't know it exists

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Probably a better way to phrase it but I also didn't wanna really wanna get into biology etc etc so just left it like that

Hmm, I like Pageant Material a lot so I'm not sure if I'd agree with that, but I think a lot of the discourse around Dedicated might trend that way simply because of what a phenomenon Emotion was. Honestly, it was hard for me to write about something that I think is perfectly OK but here we are!
