I have listened to jj’s beautiful sophomore effort, jj nº 3 a few times through now. It’s short 27 minutes and light as air tunes easily make it 2010′s most replay-able album yet, maybe after Beach House’s Teen Dream.

With each consecutive loop, the massive quality of the album’s opener, “My Life” is not lost on me. True to form, jj give another nod to the great hip hop songs that came before them, this time paying homage Lil Wayne’s classic and unforgettable verse on a Game track of the same name, and unexpectedly a joyous and playful ATC outro.

jj nº 3 is out March 9th on Secretly Canadian. Listen to “My Life” below.
