The songs on Sorry About Last Night feel lived-in, zooming in on intimate relationship details, while also maintaining a sense of universality that sounds like an invitation to commiserate with Jay's pain. "Sorry About Last Night is supposed to be listened to as a story," Rayana told The FADER over email. "I was sitting going over title ideas in my head and realized that I have said, "Yo, I am so sorry about whatever happened last night" more than any other sentence. It was just so personal and I feel like everyone could relate to that."

For the emotive soundtrack, Rayana recruited some of the Bay Area's most talented up-and-coming production talents in 1-O.A.K., Drew Banga, and Mikos Da Gawd. Listen to the Sorry About Last Night EP below.
