Party In The Penthouse

Album: Lion Heart (2014)


  • This song finds Jake describing a "no ordinary average kind of night" that he will never forget. "That's a really fun song, it's basically just about you and your friends gathering all the money that you can for one night breaking open the piggy banks and renting out a penthouse for one night, feeling like you're famous feeling like rock stars," he explained to MTV News. "And my friends used to do that when we were in high school. I never did it, but my friends did and I can relate to it. It's kind of symbolic of how I'm living right now."
