Recently engaged to his longtime partner and fashion designer Lewis Beilharz, it's Jay Saint's goal to bring more black, gay visbility to the genre and his songwriting and body of work prove he has the chops. For too long Jay wrote for labels that didn't find it profitable to invest in LGBTQ+ artists and now he's ready to blaze his own path through R&B.




I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT

IF ANYONE TRIES TO PUT YOU

IN A SITUATION WHERE YOU’RE

QUESTIONING YOUR WORTH, IT’S TIME

FOR YOU TO STICK N MOVE.”

Jay Saint


NEW YORK, NY - R&B Singer/Songwriter Jay Saint exudes

his confident swagger and post-breakup glow up in the visual

for Stick N Move, the latest single from his ExCommitted LP.

“Stick N Move was inspired by my last relationship,” says

Jay Saint. “I was done with being in a toxic situation and I

knew I needed more. When I let go of that situation I felt more

artistic...more inspired. When you’re more confident in yourself

people start to notice. I realized that I don’t need someone to

continuously tear me down anymore because obviously they

were wrong. I want everyone to know that if anyone tries to

put you in a situation where you’re questioning your worth,

it’s time for you to Stick N Move.”

Songwriting is an integral part of Jay Saint’s creative process

and he routinely draws inspiration from his time writing for

Bad Boy Records and Danity Kane’s number one album,

Welcome to the Dollhouse.


“The songwriting process for Stick N Move was easy for me,”

he recalls. “It’s easy when you’re writing from a place of what

you’ve been through. It was really about the melody and

getting the melodies to mesh together.”

The result is a visual brought to life by Saint’s self-assured

and rightfully cocky new persona. Surrounded by his dancers

in a colorful and eclectic warehouse, he commands the

choreography and wears custom wearable art designed and

styled by his partner Lewis Beilharz, with styling assistance

from LouisJean Desravines.



The vision for the Stick N Move visual was to introduce viewers and listeners to a new side of

Jay Saint – this side that doesn’t want anyone to listen to the

negative because you’re the shit.


“Being on set is like being on stage and for an artist like me

that eats, breathes and sleeps performance, it was a release,”

says Saint. “I was supposed to have a show on March 29th at

SOB’s in New York last year and I was really distraught when

it was cancelled because of COVID. I went through a lot of

preparation for the show. When it was time to shoot the video

I completely forgot about the pandemic and everything that

was going on in the world. It was my escape.”

The visual for Stick N Move closes out the era of ExCommitted

and primes listeners for what’s next. Ultimately, Jay Saint

wants his listeners to know that it’s ok to be vulnerable and

it’s ok to make mistakes. It’s about how you recover.
