Ivan Cornejo
The song "J." by Ivan Cornejo is about a past relationship which failed. He expresses his love and devotion for her, stating that he was always there for her when she needed him and that he was the first person to truly love her. He also expresses his anger towards the man who is currently with her, wanting him to treat her with respect. The chorus repeats that he still sees her everywhere he goes and that his love for her is like fire, never ending. The song ends with the man expressing his desire to start another chapter with her and his sadness that it is impossible. Despite their separation, the male singer's love for his ex-girlfriend remains as strong as ever. The title "J." may refer to the initial of the ex-girlfriend's name, or it could be symbolic of the journey their relationship took.
