Simply put, Jae Magic’s “Falling In Love” is an excellent dance-pop single. Jae’s voice seems to have a huge range; he’s gritty, smooth, soulful, sharp, and gentle when it’s called upon. He does all of this while maintaining a relaxed timbre. It’s just a joy to listen to!
Jae’s music allows you to feel good. “Falling In Love” is one of those songs that you put in while driving home after a stressful day at work. It is a toe tapping, finger snapping sensation.

Pop stars come and pop stars go, some stay around simply due to good marketing but Jae Magic may just be able to stand proud on his own talent, if he keeps working at it. Much will obviously depend on upcoming album.
