Jay Productions And Mars return with “5 to 9” from their new EP, 'BIPOLAR'.
Jay Productions and Mars are rising artists who have teamed up for their brand-new EP, ‘BIPOLAR’, with lead single “5 to 9”. They’ve dropped an accompanying video directed by 1Time Productions that was posted on GRM Daily. This is not the pair’s first collaboration, with the release of previous single “Make It” featuring on a mixtape by US Rapper The Game. “We Ain’t the Same”, another of the pair’s 2021 releases alongside Sukhraj and Ello S has already racked up hundreds of thousands of streams.
The single is a play on words, a track about achieving your goals no matter what it takes. The pair discusses how they played with the idea of normal working hours being 9 to 5, but how often being an artist entails working all night. Their dedication and work ethic are fuel for inspiration and come across in this release. Jay Productions describes how the track “shows the truth behind constantly striving to work and reach our dreams.”
The album overall features six tracks that span UK hip-hop, rap, and drill. It’s clear they are both ones to watch out for in the UK scene and beyond over the next year as they continue to build on their growing momentum.
