I dag deler LA-baserte Jay Som – aka Melina Duterte – sin blodferske single Tenderness. Låten er hentet fra hennes kommende andrealbum Anak Ko som slippes på Lucky Number 23. august 2019.

Duterte kaller selv Tenderness "en feel-good, funky og ganske sexy låt" som til dels handler om "the curse of social media" og hvordan det kompliserer et forhold.

That’s definitely about scrolling on your phone and seeing a person and it just haunts you, you can’t escape it. I have a weird relationship to social media and how people perceive me – as this person that has a platform, as a solo artist, and this marginalized person. That was really getting to me. I wanted to express those emotions, but I felt stifled. I feel like a lot of the themes of the songs stemmed from bottled up emotions, frustration with yourself, and acceptance.

Musikkvideoen er regissert av Weird Life.
