Essentially saying we ‘Jump Jump’ when advertisers / marketers tell us to buy into the products they want to sell whether we actually need it or not." said Inspekta.
You can expect Live Your Life to be a reflection of Inspekta admitting to what he thinks is wrong with the world, while he also seeks to motivate the listener to discover pursue their passion.
Featuring a sway-inducing poppy theme, Inspekta lashes out on the wickedly catchy hook. "Jump Jump" has the truth written all over it. Stream it exclusively below, and keep an eye out for the LYL album.
