Nineteen-year-old Norwegian singer and bedroom painter Lil Halima released her hopelessly catchy track, Trains earlier this year. Her follow-up is Jasmine, a laid-back, synth-filled R&B song that has her singing about a girl of the same name. “I don’t hate Jasmine, I’m just really, really jealous [of her],” Halima says of the lyrics. Jealousy sucks, but it sure does sound good. See the video below.
