J. Valentine Unveils New Single “Thank Me For That”

J. Valentine

J. Valentine has made a triumphant return with his latest single, Thank Me For That,” released through R&B Money. This track marks his first solo release since 2020.

Produced by Shawn Holmes, the acoustic-laden song delves into the theme of building up an ex-lover, only to see someone else reap the benefits. Despite the initial impression of self-centeredness, the track reflects on how our past relationships, whether positive or negative, shape the course of our romantic journeys.

In the lyrics, J. Valentine sings, “I see you doing all the little things you didn’t do before / I showed her / She might be your wife / Cooking and cleaning / Giving and pleasing / Potential, I seen it / But I realized I built you up for somebody else / And I’m the one who had it last / I know I had a big impact / Now she knows how to throw that ass back / By the way, you should thank me for that.”

Thank Me For That serves as the lead single from J. Valentine’s much-anticipated debut album, Conversations With Women. The songwriting credits include J. Valentine himself, along with Shawn Holmes, Feather, and Daniel Morris.

This release follows J. Valentine’s collaborations with Tank on the chart-topping bedroom banger “Slow,” featured on Tank’s final album, R&B Money. The track spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart. Furthermore, the duo performed “Slow” at the 2022 Soul Train Awards.

J. Valentine’s solo discography has been relatively quiet since his 2012 EP, Love & Other Drugs, which featured collaborations with artists like Chris Brown, LeToya Luckett, and Tank. Last year, he joined Tank on the R&B Money Podcast, adding another dimension to his contributions to the genre.

With “Thank Me For That,” J. Valentine not only showcases his musical prowess but also hints at the depth and variety audiences can expect from his forthcoming debut album.
