Jax has been on our radar for a while, and we are not only impressed by her unbelievable talent but also at how much of a humble and down-to-earth individual she is. She also lets her amazing sense of humor shine bright in all of her videos and she leaves us in awe every time.
Wait, let us back up! For those that don’t know, Jax is a TikTok phenomenon, at least to us. Many of us here at The Honey POP have been following her for a while and those of you that haven’t, have really been missing out on some of the greatest musical content on the TikTok app. She was raised in New Jersey and got her start by performing a wide variety of different genres growing up. Unfortunately, at the age of 18, Jax developed cancer above her vocal cords and despite a few months of remission, the cancer returned around the time she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. The cancer left her unable to sing, so she turned to songwriting for others as a way to stay connected to music, and that helped her find industry success in a different way: behind-the-scenes.
But now, she’s back in the realm of singing as she jumped on the TikTok train posting videos. She’s best known for taking songs and writing a “2nd part” to them, typically a part that’s the POV of the other person in the song. For example, she did a version of ‘Stacy’s Mom’ by Fountains Of Wayne, but from Stacy’s Mom’s POV, and it had us laughing hysterically. She also did a version of ‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift from Romeo’s POV. But, she has also released snippets of her original songs on the platform, including ‘Bitchcraft’ and ‘Ring Pop.’ The latter was recently released and went viral, and now the singer/songwriter has signed with Atlantic Records and released the accompanying music video.
THAT’S RIGHT! Our girl got a record deal and we are so stoked about it! However, before we dive into the new single, let us show you some of our favorite videos from Jax and prove why she’s worthy of success, adoration, and your support!

Here’s some of our many favorite videos she’s done, and to check out more, head over to her TikTok and enjoy!
Now, let’s dive into the new single! ‘Ring Pop’ is about being so in love with someone that it doesn’t matter how broke you are; as long as you’ve got each other, that’s all that matters. It’s honest, and with raw lyrics like “Don’t need no diamonds, you’re my rock, and I’m okay with a ring pop,” it’s no wonder this song resonates with so many people and was a viral sensation. Plus, the catchy beats and warm vocals also add to the song’s appeal. Oh, and you remember Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide from Nickelodeon, right? Then you’ll recognize Jax’s co-star in the video as Devon Werkheiser, the goofy, relatable guy who played Ned Bigby! Check it out below and we can guarantee you’ll love it as much as we do!
I was, and currently am, broke in L.A. living in a one-bedroom apartment, but very much in love. My boyfriend and I weren’t having a great week, so I wrote the song for him to feel better about not being able to just buy a diamond engagement ring and get married. Who cares? We’re living our best times now.
