Gearing up for an unforgettable season, Canadian rising pop artist Jade LeMac serves up a brand new single entitled “Grapevines” via Arista Records today. Watch the lyric video above. It heralds the release of her anxiously awaited Confessions EP, landing on November 3, 2023. View tracklist below.
About the single, she shared, “‘Grapevines’ is one of the more fun songs I’ve written. I remember being in the studio and seeing a vine, then thinking about the word ‘grapevines’ – and how cool and unique it would be to use that in a song. So I decided to base this whole song off of that one word. Naturally, it led me to think about being fed grapes (like how you used to see in the movies), and drinking wine (because that’s obviously made out of grapes), then it slowly became a metaphor for craving someone the way you would crave a glass of wine – or grapes. Sweet, a little bitter, but makes you feel happy. That’s how this song was born.”
On the track, icy beats pulsate beneath Jade’s sultry delivery. The accompanying lyric video channels this spirit on-screen.

She first set the stage for the EP with “Got Me Obsessed.” In addition to piling up over 1 million total streams and counting, it earned critical acclaim. Pop Passion raved, “This song has everything. It’s moody, has a catchy tune, and does a great job conveying all the emotions that she likely felt while writing it,” and LA On Lock attested, “This talented artist has the emotive power to hook a listener with but a single line.”
Be on the lookout for a whole lot more from Jade soon.
Jade commenced the year with her debut EP Constellations, which has since garnered an impressive 50M+ streams and much critical acclaim. Ones To Watch raved about the EP stating, “Everything about Constellations confirms what we already know. She’s a terribly impressive artist with depth and unique perspectives, but what it really uncovers, like a night drive into a star-lit expanse, is how limitless her creative journey might be.”

About Jade LeMac:
Jade LeMac naturally exists outside of any boxes, and it’s instantly apparent in her distinct sound and music. At only 19 years old, the Vancouver-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist uses her creativity to unite the world of storytelling and music in a unique and captivating way, far beyond her years. She takes pride in her half-Asian heritage and connection to the 2SLGBTQ+ community, both of which have profoundly shaped her capacity to transcend the boundaries between genres. Her upbringing within a close-knit, multicultural family on Canada’s Vancouver Island provided unwavering support for all facets of life, particularly her music and songwriting. By middle school, she was writing songs of her own and featuring on various dance singles when she started to attract a following on Instagram. Throughout 2020, Jade harnessed the power of TikTok, amassing 1.2 million followers and 51M+ likes. During 2021, she unveiled her debut single “Constellations,” an unorthodox love song, likening “the freckles on a body to constellations.” The independent release shined with over 20+ million cumulative streams and counting. She carried this momentum through with her following indie releases, eventually inking a deal with Arista Recordings in 2022, where she released her first EP “Constellations” in February of 2023, paying homage to the song that catapulted her journey. GLAAD championed her among “10 LGBTQ Women in Music to Listen to this Pride Month,” featured in Teen Vogue, and she’s received praise from Ones To Watch, Diva Magazine, Pride, Popdust and more. Now, in 2023, Jade releases her track “Got Me Obsessed” and “Grapevines” via Arista, with more music on the horizon.
