Jack Harlow’s Apple Music 1 Interview With Zane Lowe Reveals These 3 Things

If you’re one of those rare few who doesn’t have a Twitter account included in their Linktree, then you may be unaware that Jack Harlow has been trending on the platform for days now! Maybe it has something to do with the viral Met Gala meme of his cheeky “Love you” to platinum-blonde Emma Chamberlain, before greeting Camila Cabello stitched into the frame’s background—ah, our newest Hollywood class clown—or his callout to another butterfly-adorned pop star, the incredible Dua Lipa! But regardless of which, it’s all perfectly bowed into the promotional release of his sophomore album, Come Home The Kids Miss You.

All 15-tracks act as a laidback hypnosis, even borrowing Fergie’s ‘Glamorous’ pop style tunings when disembarking the Y2K timewarp to take a ‘First Class’ trip around the Billboard charts. More recently, though, Jack Harlow sat down with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe to analyze every detail, and these are just three points he made in reference to the release!

‘Young Harleezy’ 

Industry plants? Forget them, at least where Jack Harlow’s concerned. Interestingly, considering his heartthrob status, he spends time throughout the number questioning if all the traits that make him so are enough – “Am I fancy enough? / Am I dancing enough? / Am I handsome enough?

Upon speaking to Zane Lowe about paying his dues, Jack says,

“I did open mics, I did South by Southwest, I did A3C, I did showcases with no one there. My first tour, I went to Madison, Wisconsin, did a bar with eight people in it, like I felt those feelings of not being the guy at all. Yeah, bravado on record, but then I’m going around and finding out I’m not the guy.”

Within the first two lines of the song, he etches the imagery of trading video games for a business mindset, selling his voice to a group of 7th graders. Even professing, “There was a time I wasn’t the one,” during the second verse, echoing the interview, just after there’s an ooh-wee Snoop Dogg interlude. If, regardless, he’s still the unknown boy spotted in a school line-up.

‘Churchill Downs’

One of the perks of hitting breakout status is that there’s a 99.9999% chance of sparking the attention of one of your musical heroes, like Drake! Jack Harlow tells Lowe of Drake’s verse that sits as a spiel-off against his, making for a typical-Drizzy structure, “and as time went by, I just kind of… His writing is his writing. I addressed things on my verse that don’t expect him to have to answer for. And it just is what it is.”

‘Talk Of The Town’

Jack Harlow’s been extra vocal about how manifestation has played a part in his success. By that, we mean, if you type in the spiritual keyword and his name on YouTube, surely a bunch of videos will pop up, including one of him wearing a sideways yellow cap near the water. On the jazz-quaint piano earworm throwing a Euphoria gospel service half-way through, Jack contrasts his old Louisville-Kentucky lifestyle to where he is now.  He notably mentions that his GRAMMY is stored at his parents’ and while familiar people he once knew predicted he would get there, so did he. It’s reminiscent of the manifestation theory that one’s confidence must be on point before the world can project that out.

“I’m slowly in the process of if you regard yourself that way first, I’ve seen the world start to regard me how I regarded myself first in so many different ways. I thought I was that, they didn’t think so. By the time I’m on to thinking I was the step above that, they’re like, oh, I see him is what he’s … They just start to believe you. Now we’re in the era, I believe him. I believe him.”
