IV Jay is ahead of her time. At just 16 years old, the R&B singer/songwriter is well on her way to becoming a voice of change for her generation.
The Paterson, New Jersey native (real name Jaylynn) was a late bloomer in realizing her musical talents. A trained dancer of Puerto Rican, Dominican and Colombian descent she had dreams of becoming a prima ballerina. It was only after she heard beats by her uncle, a budding producer, that a musical switch went off.
IV Jay’s soulful voice, down-to-earth charm and impressive following helped her ink a deal with Atlantic Records in March 2018. She hopes that her music—and journey-- inspires strength for young women just like her. “I’m all about empowerment, self-love and self-confidence,” she says. “Women are strong and powerful.”
