Chess Players and Poets artist Jay Parker is thrilled to release his new single “Tell Me What You Need” featuring Frank Bentley.

Not a stranger to being introspective, the rapper and clinical mental health student breaks down his intent with the song.

“One of my favorite lines from the track discusses the idea of playing make-believe; I used a metaphor to say the person whom I’m speaking to is behaving like a Christmas tree. Shinning and lighting up the living room, garnering attention and accolades, however dying in the process. I believe that as image-bearers, we all long for connection and true relationship; this song is a call to examine those relationships and our tendency to run away from the uncomfortable aspects of life itself.”
