The song is co-written by Dante Leon, Adam Halliday, and LAY himself who also co-produced the song with Murda Beatz.

The sound strongly holds a backbone in modern hip-hop and ties into a love story in today’s world. Jade, tells a story that spans a thousand years, as LAY reminisces the tale of a beautiful girl. She is like a precious “Jade”, crystal clear, staunch and unyielding, with a unique luster.

The combination of traditional “peking opera” and Chinese instruments, using the word “Jade” as the theme, and also narrating a true love story.
