Kfm Top 40 with Carl Wastie | #KfmTop40

Jethro Tait gets vulnerable in revealing new song


On Saturday, 8 February 2020, Carl Wastie called up South African star, Jethro Tait, on the Kfm Top40 about the single he had dropped just one day prior, 'Sad'.

Connecting with Jethro whilst his area was in the middle of loadshedding was a risky move: but was worth it, as he opened up about this song, which many would call a risky move for a public figure: opening up about deeply personal insecurities.

On surface level, Jethro Tait seems like a confident pop star. He has been behind hit singles like ‘The Words’ with DJ Kent, ‘Running Wild’ with Pascal & Pearce as well as solo singles ‘One For The Books’ and ‘Who Are You’ and he shines when he’s on stage. But, the reality is that sometimes, anxiety gets the better of Jethro as he tends to shy away from social situations and overthinks everything – something so many people around the world battle with. So, he’s opened up about he’s experience on his honest new single, ‘Sad’ - a bold move that Carl Wastie thanked and praised him for, recognizing the fact that it is important to demystify and normalize talking about such problems, especially amongst men who are often brought up to believe otherwise.

Following the chat, Carl Wastie played 'Sad' as a future beat (a track you need to show some love to get it on the chart).
