Reflecting on Breakup Vulnerability

South London’s Jaz Karis collaborates with GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Mahalia on her latest single, Nice Girls.

The track delves into the vulnerability following a breakup, she describes the song as a reflection on karma and the experience of being on the other side of a relationship. Mahalia shares her excitement about finally collaborating with Jaz, noting the song’s significance in sharing the pain of lost love.

Karis says: “This song is about karma. This song is about how it feels now being on the other side of the story & why good girls never win. A collaboration of two hurt lover girls – I love this song so much because everyone has felt like this at some point.”

Mahalia reveals: “I have been a lover of Jaz’s music for so long that I still can’t believe we didn’t have a song together until now. When she sent me ‘Nice Girls’, I knew immediately that it would be the perfect one to duet on. It’s a moment for two women to share the pain over a lost love. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this record.”

This release marks another milestone for Jaz, following her recent MOBO Award nomination for Best R&B/Soul Act and the earlier single MET YOU AT A BAR featuring Tone Stith. Known for her standout COLORS performance of Petty Lover, which has garnered over 16 million views, Jaz continues to solidify her position in the UK music scene.
