Los Angeles, CA (Medium) 05/05/2023 — Don’t mess with Jess, everyone. Her catchy and confident single, “You Said No,” should make that clear. With this release, Jess Fitz is making her mark in today’s Pop and Dance scenes. Along with having big hair and a big voice, the queer London-based singer tells big stories in her music. “You Said No” features on her EP, “My Mind,” along with the funky “Back In Town” and the energetic “Heartbreaker Energy.” Fans might also recognize Jess Fitz from “Opposite Of Chill” or “Saturday Night,” the latter of which is close to reaching 100,000 streams on Spotify.

In the powerhouse track, “You Said No,” Jess Fitz recognizes her self-worth and resolves that she is better off on her own. She draws influence from similar feminist bops, such as current charting hits by Dua Lipa, RAYE, and Ava Max. She opens with a bold assertion, “I’m not scared of rejection, why should I be?” A crush turning you down might feel a little disappointing at first — admit it, we’ve all been there. However, it’s important to look on the bright side of things!

“You Said No” develops the common phrase, “If I’m too much for you, go find less,” into a whole song. It could easily soundtrack some turning points in films — particularly characters’ epiphany moments that they should stop chasing the idiot who rejected them anyway. An anthem for the “independent, self-indulgent women,” it encourages the listener to never apologize for who they are.

Jess Fitz explains: “To be honest, I get rejected by love interests pretty regularly. It always stings, but I’ve realized that ultimately it’s their loss, and I’d rather be alone than with someone who’s not right for me. So, the song is a celebration of that rejection, and how you can be happy and fulfilled even without a romantic partner in your life. We love to see it!”

This banger layers detailed, intimate storytelling against masterful synth-infused instrumentals. “You Said No” takes hints from 70’s Disco and Funk…
