TikTok star Jaden Hossler is taking over the music industry one song at a time! The Sway House member took his social media career to the next level by working with some musical legends and creating a ton of catchy bops.
Releasing singles under the name JXDN, the singer and songwriter has opened up about his past struggles with some extremely meaningful songs. In August 2020, Jaden celebrated the release of “Pray,” and explained to Radio.com that it was “without a doubt the realest and most prominent song” that he’s ever released.
“I had a big moment in my life where I stopped worrying about the things I was really doing, per se, and really my heart behind everything. Now my heart sits in a place where I just love people,” Jaden said at the time, explaining what he wants fans to take from his music. “It’s important for us to be there for people, one-on-one or with a group, or in my case with millions of people watching my stuff. I just want people to understand that everyone goes through it, and we need to stop isolating people because either they’re struggling or they don’t know what to do. That’s not how you go about it. We’ve got to love people to change.”
With his debut album on the way, Jaden has already worked with some of the greats — including famed Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Machine Gun Kelly, among others — and he has no plans to slow down soon!
He also made headlines in early 2021 following drama with his ex-girlfriend Mads Lewis, best friend Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett. After Mads and Jaden seemingly split, she uploaded a since-deleted TikTok video which alluded that Nessa stole Jaden from her after they released a song together.
Jaden, for his part, explained the entire situation in an Instagram Live from April 2021. He said he wishes “nothing but [the] best” for his ex, noting that “sometimes things just don’t work.” He also claimed that because of the drama, Josh has blocked him on social media and former friends have not spoken. It’s unclear exactly what’s going to do down between these internet stars.
