Why j-a-q-i?

Must originality be defined?

Is uniqueness a gift to embrace or a crime?

Can we just breathe, believe and elevate our minds and go beyond the box

To receive a serious, yet sanctified vibe

Designed to make us sing, dance, pray, shout

Lose our sin-lovin’ minds!

And forgive, achieve, cry, believe

But definitely not justify

What’s wrong in black and white

Why j-a-q-i?

Because God said so, and that’s deep

No apologies—just JAQI

Catapulting beyond the box of traditional Gospel and Christian Contemporary genres, JAQI has redefined the voice of Inspirational music. Marrying clearly stated lyrics with aggressive yet soulful melodies and rhythms, JAQI leaves no room for misinterpretation.

Born in the nation's capital, Washington, DC, JAQI attributes an essential part of her artistic growth and development to her collegiate experience at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she studied and performed with various accomplished musicians. However, it was the spiritual awakening after college that transformed JAQI's song and reconstructed her life.

The debut album, "just jaqi" is a delectable blend of urban musical stylings and powerful lyrical artistry. This unique artist promises to vocally soothe, while challenging you mentally and spiritually. Simply stated, - just JAQI.

Lyrics

Green Grass

Written By: jaqi

Hook:
Green grass syndrome
Goin’ on in your dome
Thinkin’ that what you got
Ain’t as good as what you see
Don’t believe that
Green grass syndrome
Goin’ on in your dome
Thinkin’ that what you got
Ain’t as good as what you see
Don’t believe that

Verse 1:
Wanderin’ eyes
Scopin’ the scene
Sizin’ up your type
But, what do you mean
You’re already spoken for
You say, I’m just lookin’
Then you catch a vibe
Now, you’re just flirtin
You’ve got the

Verse 2:
Sittin’ at home
Watchin’ the screen
All kinda stuff feeds your lust
Satisfying
You look at the one you love
And say, it’s not worth it
But you forgot one thing
You’re far from perfect
You got the

Bridge:
If you look too long,
you might be deceived
Things always seem better
from across the street
So spend quality time
just concentrating
On you and yours and y’alls
No comparing, mentally

Vamp:
Put your energy
On the pulling the weeds
and planting new seeds
Put your energy
On watering and harvesting
your own green

Blows My Mind

Written By: jaqi

Verse 1:
Mind-boggled, sin awful
Am I, when I reflect on the ultimate love
of my life, Jesus Christ, right!
Earth shaking, soul saving
Was He on that day back at Calvary
Made me free, now I sing

Hook:
Blows my mind when I think about Him
It really blows my mind when I think about Him
How He loves, what He does
It really blows my mind
How He saves, what He gave
Blows my mind when I think about Him
It really blows my mind when I think about Him
How He loves, what He does
It really blows my mind

Verse 2:
Life changing, arranging
Is He, when you make Him Captain of your sea
Eternally meant to be
He is satisfying, relying
You can, unlike man
He stands on His Word
Undeterred and that’s for sure

Bridge:
His ways are not like mine
His thoughts exceed all time
Just too deep to comprehend
I’ll never understand
All power’s in His hand
Such a Master plan!

Call

Written By: jaqi

Verse 1:
The Word says
You don’t have, ‘cause you don’t ask
Trying to work it out
You never pray about it
And if you think
He don’t have time for little things
God said, “Cast all your cares…”
Because He cares for you

Hook:
Nothing’s too big or too small
For God, He cares for all
If you belong to Him,
Call, call

Verse 2 :
Now, if there’s doubt
It will be hard
To live by faith
Focused on what you see
Impossible to believe Him
When times get rough
Just set your mind
On things above
He promised to never leave
Because He loves you

Bridge:
When your body’s racked with pain
Or your sunshine turns to rain
And it seems like nothing’s gonna change
All you do is trust Him
Only just believe in Him and (call)
Through the bad times
Sad times, glad times, mad times
It really don’t matter how you feel
Only just receive Him
And seek Him and (call)
