Nashville-based duo Jill and Kate are through with messing around. On their new single, “Just Kiss Me,” the pair is tired of a wishy-washy dude and are ready to take things out of the friend zone with one simple action: a kiss.
We’ve all been there, which makes the fun up-tempo track all the better. Here, they sing about a guy that’s always the go-to call or last drink, “dancing around” the obvious relationship that “everybody else knows [it] should be happening.” For some reason, they’re a simple lip lock away from the inevitable and the song invites the nervous (or oblivious) man to make his move.
“But you never make a move/ What you think you’re gonna lose?/ There’s really not much that you have to do/ Just kiss me/ How many signs do you need to see, see, see?/ Just kiss me/ Not like the world’s gonna end/ If you just lean in/ Kiss me/ Just kiss me.”
It’s bound to happen, so the girls are willing to wait it out. “We can wait another night,” They sing here. “But you know it’s gonna happen eventually.”
“Just Kiss Me” is a fun ear-worm of a track that’s sure to have you singing along within the first minute. The track also allows Jill and Kate to continue to show their diversity from previous releases. While “Just Kiss Me” is a pure pop song, previous releases include the country-influenced “Better,” the intensely powerful and personal “Nashville,” a lullabies album and an acoustic cover album that includes new takes on songs from the likes of Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Clarkson. One thing shines through on all of them, however, and that’s their unrivaled harmonies.
“We are SO EXCITED because our new song, ‘Just Kiss Me,’ just released TODAY and we want you to hear it! We’ve never shared this song before with anyone — we wrote it with Ben Goldsmith in Nashville, TN and it was produced by Luke DeJaynes and Seth Earnest. We feel SO LUCKY to work with awesome people who are talented, humble, and an absolute blast,” Jill and Kate said in an email. “This song will make you dance, make you want to roll your windows down…and maybe do a little kissing :)”
