Andra Day Slays This Acoustic Version of 'Gin & Juice'

Watch this now.

Published August 19, 2015

Andra Day, the San Diego native who has made a splash with “Gin & Juice,” is preparing to drop her debut album Cheers to the Fall on Aug. 28.

With the album’s release just around the corner, she showcases her talent in an acoustic visual for “Gin & Juice.” Before the video starts, we learn about the inspiration behind the song, which she tells Hello Beautiful: "It's about habits or vices you want to get rid of but you can't, whether in a relationship or that thing/issue you can't let go of."

“Gin & Juice” was made with Raphael Saadiq who helped pen the tune. "He was very nurturing with the songs I had created and became so close too, with a fresh ear. He came up with the 'let go my hand, boy, let go my hand' and I was like, 'Let's make this thing a person' because sometimes it is a person. So it's about telling that thing, 'Let go of me. You don't have a hold of me anymore.'"

Now that you've got the backstory of the song, you need to watch Day own it live. Add this one to your playlist.
