Jelly Roll Releases Brand New Song “Need A Favor”
Jelly Roll’s brand new song, “Need A Favor” is out now, December 9th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.
Jason DeFord, known professionally as Jelly Roll, has been creating music predominately in the hip-hop realm his entire career. Recently, he has been experimenting with more traditional sounds and returning to his Nashville roots. For his 2021 album, Ballads Of The Broken, Jelly Roll teamed up with renowned songwriter, ERNEST to collaborate on the single “Son Of A Sinner”, which currently sits at number two on the National Country Airplay chart.
In “NEED A FAVOR,” written with Austin Nivarel, and Joe and Rob Ragosta, Jelly Roll discusses his relationship with God, confessing how he only reaches out when he needs something from him. He acknowledges that in order for God to help him, he would have to change his ways. In the second verse, we find out the favor is his girl not leaving him. Sonically the track contains heavy percussion with fiddle sprinkled in between the lyrics.
I only talk to God when I need a favor // And I only pray when I ain’t got a prayer // So, who the hell am I, who the hell am I // To expect a Savior o-o-oh // If I only talk to God when I need a favor // God I need a favor
