After releasing her debut album "Symptoms" in November 2019, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Jasmine Crowe culls her first Billboard appearance, beginning at No. 49 now at #37 on Dance Club Songs with "Chess Game." The poppy original was remixed by C-Rod, Matt Moss and Nitemover, among others.
"'Chess Game' was born from a very honest place," Crowe tells Billboard. "One night, my girlfriend and I were talking about all the struggles we've been through, trying to navigate life and relationships, especially as young women in our industry, feeling like we were tired of playing everyone else's games. Inspired to write something uplifting, ultimately this song turned into an infectiously driven and empowering anthem in the face of adversity. The symbolism of the lyrics represents transformation, realizing your inner strength and having the courage to own your true power."
