Jalle gives Notion an exclusive look behind the scenes at the making of his music video for “Hate Me”.
Following up on his debut EP ‘Hey’, the rapper with Nottingham roots, Jalle, has released the music video for his latest single, “Hate Me”
The track is inspired by the confusion of his ended relationship and captures the impossibility of navigating one that isn’t working out.
On the track, Jalle explained: “’Hate Me’ is about my last relationship. It came to a very sour end; arguments, nearly getting back together, the word hate being thrown around. It’s about having to deal with all those repercussions. Really, we weren’t ready for love so we had to cut each other out.”
The accompanying video sees the 20-year-old artist stumbling through a luridly-coloured mansion, first struggling out of chains then winding up in an opulent leopard-printed dining room, before finally being set upon by cocktail-shaking poodles. Essentially, it’s Jalle’s worst nightmare.
The Annie Mac and Jack Saunders-praised musician credits Nottingham’s Community Recording Studios for providing the foundation for his ensuing career. Jalle worked there as an engineer, before creating his own music. The rapper has collaborated with the likes of Issey Cross and Boy Destroy and will soon be performing alongside ENNY at the BBC Introducing session at the Lexington.
