Big Loud Records breakout talent JILLIAN JACQUELINE has only just released her debut EP, SIDE A, but the singer-songwriter is already serving up another taste of her striking confessional style with the video for “Sugar and Salt.”

Making its premiere on Billboard.com today (10/9), the bare-bones clip shines a light on Jacqueline’s raw, heart on her sleeve song craft. It features nothing more than Jacqueline, her retro style, and an electric guitar, bringing her bittersweet ballad of long-lasting love to life in a single take. 

“Sugar and Salt” is one of nine standout tracks included on SIDE A, with details of a full-length album coming soon. The video will begin streaming worldwide via Vevo on Tuesday (10/10) – watch it now on Billboard.com.

“There’s something really beautiful about couples that stay together for 50 years or more, and there’s also something really bittersweet about it," explained Jacqueline exclusively to Billboard. "‘Sugar and Salt’ was my attempt at summing up how complicated the love in long-term relationships can be, when the history gets deeper but the staying together gets harder.”

Released on September 22, SIDE A follows the successful launch of four vibey tracks and videos this summer. Jacqueline’s unflinching breakup anthem, “Reasons,” has already been streamed over 11 million times on Spotify alone, and each of the other three – “Hate Me,” “Bleachers,” and “God Bless This Mess” – have topped 1 million plays. 

The ongoing multi-media project continues to turn heads, while critics and fans alike have recognized the newcomer as a talent to watch. The Fader has named Jacqueline’s piano ballad “God Bless This Mess” as one of their 10 Amazing Country Songs for Fall, saying “There’s a reason the Philly singer has landed on the charts.” Jacqueline was also named Amazon Music’s first-ever Weekly One artist, with her carefree, loud-and-proud “Bleachers” spotlighted as the platform’s choice for the must-hear song of the week from an artist about to break.

Meanwhile, her high-profile performance at the massive Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival earned a rave review from Country-news heavyweight The Boot, who cited the artist as part of their 10 Epic Moments feature. 

Last week was filled with more big-time shows in London, England during the buzz-worthy Country Music Week, and now she’ll return stateside to close out the year with concerts in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
