SABC3 Top Billing presenter, musician, actress, MC and model Jade Hubner recently releases her first solo track to date. Titled 'Just Let Me', the track was written together with renowned lyricist Andrè Scheepers who has worked with the likes of Jesse Clegg and Bobby van Jaarsveldt.
'Just Let Me' explores the emotions and mysteries of being in a new relationship, however, Jade connected to the song because of the constant prejudices that come with being in the limelight. “Some people seem to think that just because they have seen me on television or are an acquaintance of mine, that they know me rather let me in and let me be me; then you can see the real me,” adds Jade.
Andre Scheepers – who came highly recommended by a mutual friend– was the perfect fit for the sound that Jade was wanting to achieve for this track. The two went on to write the bridge and complete the song together. “This track of my own, differs greatly from all the collaborations that I have released,” explains Jade. “This song needed to remain raw; almost untouched. Just me and the piano...”
Before the creation of 'Just Let Me', Jade hadn’t played the piano for over 12 years. Learning to play the song was a challenge which the multi-talented Jade overcame in a mere three hours. When asked about the emotions tied to releasing this single, Jade had this to say: “Words can’t express how special this is to me. My official first song, 15 years of working towards this moment and learning the piano to perform it myself, it’s definitely one of my proudest moments and one of my greatest achievements; right up there with becoming a Top Billing presenter, playing a lead in an international horror film and acting in a television series with Russell Peters.”
