How would you describe your new single ‘Jump Right After You’?
SARTEK – 'Jump Right After You' also connects with me on a very deep level because of the words. It depicts intense love and friendship. We always have that one person in our lives that's willing to go to any length to have our backs, regardless of what it entails. People who just make everything better, good times or bad. And we always have people in our lives that we'd do it for. It's like saying "if you jump, I jump" no holds barred.
