Cassadee Pope has shared a new version of her latest single, “People That I Love Leave” featuring rising, pop singer-songwriter, Jax. Combined with Pope, Jax’s captivating vocals breathe new life to the already high-energy track about being afraid of fully letting love in after having been through so much heartbreak.
“I’ve been a fan of Jax’s music for a while now. I love everything she stands for,” shares Pope. “Her empowering message, bravery, authenticity, and incredible voice is what made me want her featured on this song. I’m so honored she said ‘yes’ and I think she has elevated this song incredibly.”
Originally released in April, “People That I Love Leave” was co-written by Pope, Ali Tamposi (Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson), Roman Campolo (Elton John, BTS), Nick Long (Machine Gun Kelly, Avril Lavigne) and Andrew Luce (Iann Dior, Role Model) and produced by Pope, Dan Swank, Mason Sacks, Hosu Yoon and Luce.
Pope also recently shared the official music video for the song. Directed by Ed Pryor (Dierks Bentley, Mickey Guyton, The War and Treaty), the video finds Pope in an all-too-relatable scenario of self-sabotaging your relationships time and time again because of past heartbreak.
Always paving her own path in the industry since the beginning of her career, Pope begins a new chapter in her musical journey with “People That I Love Leave.” Having started her career as the frontwoman of beloved, pop-punk band, Hey Monday, “People That I Love Leave” marks a return to form who has been releasing country songs for the past decade.
