Jump

Album: Yet to be titled (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • "Jump" finds Julia Michaels crooning breathy lyrics in which she weighs up the potential consequences of diving into a new relationship.

    'Cause now you're moving in on my skin, I move back with my lips
    It goes against my better judgment, 'cause I, 'cause I want it


    Speaking with Nova 93.7, Michaels reflected on the song's meaning saying, "It's about wanting to sort of dive into something really quickly but you have so many hesitations because you've been hurt before."
  • Julia Michaels penned "Jump" with longtime co-writer Justin Tranter while frequent producer Nick Monson supplied the ethereal production. The song started as a voice note in Michaels' phone, which Tranter and Monson then helped bring to life.
  • Ohio rapper Trippie Redd drops an emotive and bitter verse directed at Michaels in which he pleads her not to "throw your love away."
