Says Jerrod, “I knew it was meant to be whenever my friends at the record label were pitching me my best friend’s songs.”

Before he cut it, Jerrod called Lee up to see if he was sure he didn’t want to record “Buzz Back Girl” himself.

Jerrod recalls, “He said, ‘Man, the album that I’m making now, it honestly doesn’t fit.’ He said, ‘I probably would have recorded it in the future, but if you want it, it’s all yours.'”

Jerrod then went into the studio to put his own stamp on “Buzz Back Girl.” It’s the latest single from his current album, High Noon, available now.
