Natalie Jean is a versatile singer-songwriter, flavoring her pop dominant work with folk structures. Emotionally charged, she inclines towards visceral presentations that are reminiscent of SIA and Adele. As a young child she used to sing along with her father, Guy R. Jean, a famous Haitian artist, in their home. She started her career by writing poetry. And slowly, poetry found its way to her dominant passion, music. In this seemingly autobiographical release, I Can’t (Radio Edit), Natalie Jean carries us through valleys of emotion and experience. 

The track is a portrait of ruminative engagement. Drawing from the emotion of violins, banjo and guitar melodies, she paints a picture of sordid melancholy. The stream of consciousness lyricism gives us an uncensored look into the state of the protagonist’s mind, as she deals with themes like death, grief, and helplessness. 

Influenced by artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Celine Dion, and Billie Holiday, she invokes their wrenching style and pairs it with her storytelling abilities. Adept in French, Spanish, Creole and English, she writes and performs for many different genres besides her own, such as Rap, Country, Dance, and Heavy metal. Most recently, Natalie Jean was the Gold Medal Winner in the 2017 Global Music Awards for Female Pop Vocalist for her song “L’Amour a L’Infini. In 2014. She was nominated in the Best Dance Category in the 2014 Artist in Music Awards, as well as had 5 nominations in The 2014 Indie Music Music Channel Awards for Best Blues Song, Best Blues Artist, Best Jazz Song, Best Best Rap Song, and Best R&B Artist.

The track is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
