Everything You Wanted to Know About 'Story of a Boy' Singer-Songwriter JORDY

2023 is definitely going to be JORDY's year, and his instantly iconic new single "Story of a Boy" is just the beginning.

The track interpolates Nine Days 2000 hit "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" (recently featured in the multiversal masterpiece Everything Everywhere All at Once), with JORDY transforming the narrative into a queer love song of hope and yearning. It feels fully modern, yet nostalgic, channeling JORDY's signature honesty and creativity into the song he wishes he could have listened to on the radio as a kid.

"Story of a Boy" will also be featured on JORDY's upcoming sophomore album, BOY, which drops on April 21, and it can't come soon enough. With his music being streamed over 100 million times—and counting—he's fast becoming a fan-favorite artist.

Fun Facts:

1. JORDY's biggest guilty pleasure is staying in.

3. He recently binge-watched The Sex Lives of College Girls, and he's obsessed.

"My dad makes the best potato latkes and my mom's matzo ball soup is heavenly."


5. He doesn't consider himself much of a collector, but he does have a lot of hats.

"I like throwing one on in the morning if I don't feel like doing my hair, and it's nice to have options!"


6. He looks up to a number of inspirations in various areas of his life.

"I feel like my parents are so driven, which is the reason I decided to chase my dream, but then I have musical inspirations like FLETCHER, Julia Michaels and Troye Sivan. I think that looking up to others and learning from them can be the best way to progress and move forward with your goals."

"For some reason, it feels like I have more permission to be comfy and cozy. Drinking coffee while listening to morning rain is one of my favorite activities."


8. As a kid, he watched That's So Raven religiously—and he still does.

"I eat it with literally everything. It's so delicious and good for you, too! Buy some kimchi!"
