Listen to Labrinth’s ‘Jealous’ from The Chi, Season 4, Episode 5 — an emotionally devastating song

British electronic music singer, rapper and songwriter Labrinth’s ‘Jealous’ was played on this week’s episode of The ChiThe Chi, Season 4, Episode 5, “The Spook Who Sat by the Door” — which aired on Sunday, June 20th, 2021.

The emotionally devastating song was heard as Kevin was looking for Jake and Jemma.

Labrinth’s ‘Jealous‘ was originally released in late 2014 and, while the song may sound as though it was referencing a lost love, the singer has said the lyrics were written about his father leaving the family when the singer was just four-years-old.

The non-album song charted in eight countries, including the UK, Belgium, France and Ireland. ‘Jealous’ was eventually certified Platinum in the UK and 3 x Platinum in Australia.

The track, which is one of many Labrinth has had featured on hit TV series, came with a simple but heart-grabbingly effective official music video featuring close-ups of Labrinth singing the track.

A video that has earned the singer almost 300 million views on YouTube.

The Chi is currently airing on Showtime.
