Harmonizing Hearts: Frex and Jordan Ward's Cozy Alt-R&B Track “Used To”

Samantha DeCarlo

LA-based alt-R&B artist Frex collaborates with emerging St. Louis R&B singer Jordan Ward for the cozy, lustful release of their new single ‘Used To'. Released through Island Records, the track is produced by Elijah Heisler, Mike Hector & Brody Myles. The artists harmonize seamlessly against a minimalist backdrop, reflecting on the delicate start of a relationship and the challenge of placing trust in a new companion after a history of solitude. The chorus sings, “This ain't my usual (Usual)/ Please, don't abuse (Abuse it)/ 'Cause I could get used to, used to you”. Repetition of this refrain conveys vulnerability and sincerity, as the artists explore unfamiliar emotions and connections. 

With influences such as Death Cab For Cutie, Phoenix, Two Door Cinema Club, and Young The Giant, Frex draws inspiration from R&B, pop, jazz, and classic rock. In her bedroom, she began recording YouTube covers on an old laptop. Her passion for music quickly evolved into a career, something she had no idea would be possible. From a small town in Pennsylvania to LA, the rising talent is eager to take her sound worldwide.
