Jay Copeland calls his new single “Unlonely” a “bop”

Jay Copeland, one of three auditioners awarded  “Platinum Ticket” told Billboard after his elimination: “I’m feeling great. I don’t think we have anything to be disappointed about. It’s been an amazing experience. Over 100,000 people auditioned for this show. We made it to the top 7. Seven in the entire country and that’s crazy to think about.”

Jay who performs silky soul songs and danceable r&B, earned his Platinum ticket in Austin, which gave him special perks at the Hollywood Round.

“I’m sending nothing but love to every single one of you,” Jay wrote on Instagram after his elimination. “Stay tuned for my single “Unlonely” releasing this Friday!! It’s a Bop! Here’s to summer and new beginnings.”
