Based in California, singer-songwriter and producer Jordan Acosta Lee is just 14 years old, and made her first waves in the music industry in February 2020. Despite a global pandemic she has already established herself as a fully refined recording artist over such a short space of time.
This single, “Cliché Love” is filled with smooth R&B melodies and pounding pop rhythms. Acosta Lee draws inspiration from the likes of Jhené Aiko and H.E.R to develop a rich musical landscape. For someone so young, Acosta Lee manages to explore universal emotions and encounters through her personal lyricism – connecting with her audience through shared experiences.
Speaking about the single, Acosta Lee shares, “‘Cliché Love” dives into the experience of a person in an unfaithful relationship that is struggling with wanting to be with someone while knowing the relationship should end. When you love a person so much, you can’t let go no matter what. Sometimes a faithful partner wishes a relationship would be normal but it’s not. When the relationship is not working, a person can feel trapped and confused about what to do.”
Acosta Lee has already developed a loyal following across social media, and her music has amassed tens of thousands of monthly listens on streaming platforms, quickly receiving over 117,000 views on YouTube.
