Jules - 'Before You Picked Her'

A smash hit from the 17-year-old's forthcoming debut album is destined to boomerang across radio and pile up a stack of platform streams that will launch her just about anywhere she pleases.

Jules - 'Before You Picked Her'

Jules – ‘Before You Picked Her’ (RPMpromotion/It’s Jules Records): This debut track from the Oakville, ON post-teen's upcoming album debut has 'smash hit' stamped on it from start to finish but, unfortunately, we have to go with an unadorned version since the radio version has no SoundCloud or YouTube embed.

This said, take it from me that this gal has poise, a storyline that’s Shakespearian, a backing band that snaps, crackles and pops and a voice that could power a tall ship. Jules has it all on the lead-track single, and if she can follow it with more like this…well, then there’s no stopping her.


The album is called Watching, and her vague bio sheet says the set features nine “intensely rich songs” ranging from “Fool’s Gold,” about her Instagram generation’s preoccupation with fake lives over human touch to the I-had-him-first destined hit “Before You Picked Her,” and don’t-mess-with-me “Prey.”

Oh, and the single is featured in an upcoming GM commercial.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
