With a dreamy and celebratory tone, Jade Novah sings about finding strength in breaking free from an unappreciative lover in her new song “Butterfly.” Embracing the positive changes in her life, Novah acknowledges that some things are better apart.
“You gotta admit, I’m glowing different / Know you probably miss it / Got something special now / This was the only way how,” Novah sings. “Had to get out of my shell / I had to change up for myself / You couldn’t handle me now.”
Accompanying “Butterfly” is a stunning lyric visual, where Novah appears in a white lace outfit, which can be viewed below.
“Butterfly” is Novah’s first song release of the year, with no additional details on whether it is part of a future project. Novah’s last project, Moon in Pisces, was released in August 2022 during her headlining U.S. tour of the same name. The six-song EP featured Kenyon Dixon and previously shared tracks “I Just Wanna Know” and “Trip.”
Describing Moon in Pisces in a press statement, Novah said, “It’s a full musical journey where we navigate our ups and downs in love while healing and self-reflecting.”
During her Moon in Pisces Tour, Novah spoke to Rated R&B about the sound of her next album, a follow-up to 2020’s Stages. “R&B through and through,” Novah noted. “I feel like the EP definitely did that and I want more of it. Storytelling. Authentic R&B. And there’s this feature that is supposed to happen.”
Before 2022 ended, Novah collaborated again with Dixon for a holiday-inspired song, “Here (For Christmas).”
