Jules Marie is a singer and songwriter from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has released 7 singles till now, and Lucky is her latest single that has taken the Internet by storm.
We like everything about this song, the upbeat background music, the brief rapping, and the lyrics. Jules Marie has certainly outdone herself with this latest single. She has combined different genres to produce an enjoyable masterpiece. The background music is a unique blend of striking and contrasting melodies, which gives the song such a fun vibe. It reminds you of carefree days and fun, enjoyable moments. Jules Marie has also added a bit of rap in the song, which is definitely our favorite part of this track. Our music industry had far too few female rappers, and it's certainly nice to see more women trying out this genre. And if you don't like rap much, don't worry. This is not one of those hardcore rap songs. It features just a little bit of rap for added spice to uplift your mood and give you a much-needed boost of confidence and motivation.
It also has a bit of a nostalgic element when Jules highlights her childhood.
Looking out the window as a child
Now I'm in the driver's seat
An old friend sent me this beat
And the only thing I know to say
Is that the days change, but the routes stay the same
Oh, how we love the last line. It is such a powerful and poetic song that you are bound to have this on repeat. You can definitely see that this single is nothing less than any poem. Jules Marie has certainly crafted the most exquisite lyrics, beautifully encompassing different emotions, ranging from nostalgia to faith and motivation. But she has kept the background music very upbeat, which is the best part.
If you haven't checked out this upbeat motivational song, we strongly recommend you do so. Lucky by Jules Marie is available on major platforms, including Apple Music.
Let's hear her musical journey…
Hi, Great to have you with us today! Please tell us about yourself.
I am a singer, songwriter, and performer from all over Pennsylvania. From the city of Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs to the Pocono Mountains.
Please tell us more about your journey.
I have been singing since I can remember. Some of my earliest memories include performances on top of family Thanksgiving tables singing “Tomorrow” from Annie. And pretty much performing and singing to anyone who would watch and listen.
I've always had a special connection to music. It has followed me through all the stages of my life. I started songwriting and writing stories when I was in second grade. I wrote my first full song when I was 8 years old. I was a choir and theater kid pretty much my whole young life. I would have solos in the middle school choir, but I really got more serious with the start of high school. I was in community theater, the school musicals, and every choir they offered. I was in concert choir, women's choir, and the select audition-only choirs like Vocal Ensemble and Vocal Jazz. I had some really great opportunities with those groups. I got to perform the National Anthem at Lincoln Financial Field, and I even performed at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC.
I graduated high school in 2015 and went on to pursue music in college. I went to Montgomery County Community College and majored in music. I only completed one semester and a half before deciding the college route wasn't for me.
I had some traumatic events happen that year and actually considered giving up pursuing music altogether.
Spoiler Alert. I didn't. And I'm so thankful I didn't.
Please tell us about your music projects.
I released my first single, ‘Breathe,' under the name ‘Jules.' in 2019 before realizing that my name Jules Marie was unique to me. (If you look up Jules Marie on Spotify or Apple Music, I am the only one).
I have released 7 singles total till now, including 2 renditions/covers of popular songs and, of course, 5 originals written by me.
My newest single LUCKY, just came out on April 2nd and has been by far my most successful. It already has almost 20k streams in just one week!
That's HUGE for me. And with all the music I'm working on, I feel like there's nowhere to go but up!
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
I honestly don't have much of a strategy for success. Having a lot of successful friends in the music industry definitely helps! And I have learned a lot by watching them. I have also just been really focused on being open and real with people, especially with my lyrics. I tend to write about how I view the world and how I view the journey of life. I'm just a person. We all are. I think people really connect with someone who is willing to share their life in their music.
Any message for our readers.
My message is to keep going. Especially when it gets tough or you feel like giving up, or you feel like you've gotten nowhere. There are always ways to grow and become whatever version of success is meaningful to you.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
Thank you so much, Jules, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
