Elle King has had enough of washed-up losers. Instead, she opts to get on her knees and pray. With “Try Jesus,” she wades through rising tides of heartbreak to become cleansed and renewed. King wields a humorous pen to relay the message, singing, “I should try Jesus / See what all the fuss is about / Thinkin’ I should try Jesus / ‘Cause every other man let me down / Got me singin’ ‘Hey Hallelujah, A-freakin’-men’ / Baby, I don’t need me anybody but him.” If there’s anyone who could take us to church, it’s Ell King.
