Undaunted by Her Young Age of 18, JaeRene Wants to be ‘a Force’ in R&B

R&B princess JaeRene may only be 18, but she’s already logged years in the industry. The recent Dobie High grad released her debut EP last fall, featuring artists like Houston rapper Z-Ro; she’s been working on the album since she was 13.


“I would like to see myself at the top of the charts, being a force in the industry,” says JaeRene, who admits experiencing a bit of writer’s block during quarantine, but strives to remain creative. “I want to push the message that being young doesn’t place any limits on you.”
