Jack released his second single in July 2019 following a premiere on Tara Stewart’s RTE 2FM show. A co-write and co-production with fellow Dublin electronic artist LOGUOS, Ego is a house infused pop song which takes inspiration from 90s dance tracks and modern pop music.
While Jack’s first single Scarlet A delved into deeper and darker places, Ego marks a change of tone for Jack who sings about unearthing his self confidence and expressing himself even when he’s in a relationship, because “you’re the only one who’s always gonna wake up next to you every morning”.
Ego was added to Spotify’s “Out Now” Pride editorial playlist, and passed 10,000 streams 1 month after release. It also received significant radio support, being aired on RTE 2FM, Spin 1038, BBC Ulster and KCLR to name a few.
"The ever flamboyant Jack Rua's vocals are occasionally reminiscent of Fast Love era George Michael. LOGUOS, meanwhile delivers a bouncy track built around classic piano stabs" Golden Plec
"Working through a prism of electro-pop, the track swings for the fences with hook after hook leading to big sing-along choruses"
