(AllHipHop Music) Talent just runs in the Jackson family bloodline!
Making his official debut, Los Angeles born singer-songwriter and entertainer Jaafar Jackson has released his new single and video “Got Me Singing”.
Jackson is the son of Jermaine Jackson and nephew of Michael Jackson. Given the legendary lineage of the Jackson family, music might be hardwired into his DNA, but Jaafar Jackson also trailblazes his own sound.
He gravitated towards piano at just 12-years-old and immersed himself in songwriting and performing. Simultaneously, he developed a heightened musical palette, spanning everything from film scores to icons such as his dad Jermaine, aunt Janet Jackson, late uncle Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Johnny Mathis, and many more.
"Got Me Singing'" boasts the influence of Michael Jackson and showcases production from Jaafar's friend and chief collaborator Hardy Indiigo who has produced for Madonna, Carlos Santana and more.
The track introduces a simmering style powered with live instrumentation and bordering pop, R&B, soul, and Caribbean influences.
After meeting French-Congolese creative Hardy Indiigo, he unlocked an infectious and international energy through merging Afro-Latin sensibilities and pop R&B ambition.
Jackson's dynamic delivery builds from breathy verses into a show-stopping refrain as he croons the immediately irresistible hook, “Got me singing.”
The single features an uptempo beat infused with South American elements such as Brazil’s very own Baile Funk and 90’s house chords.
The track serves as Jaafar’s introduction to his world.
"I knew this song would be a special one and would be a great introduction to my sound and upcoming album. It gave me the feeling of wanting to dance. I can’t wait to share it with the world and hope they get the same feeling," said Jackson.
“Got Me Singing” is the first taste of new music off of Jaafar’s forthcoming independent full-length project, 'Famous', which will be released on his birthday, July 25, 2019.
