Make way, The Jackson family has a rising king of Pop.
Making his official debut, Los Angeles born singer-songwriter and entertainer Jaafar Jackson releases his new single and video “Got Me Singing” today.
Produced by his friend and chief collaborator Hardy Indiigo, who has worked with the likes of Madonna and Carlos Santana, just to name a few, the track introduces a simmering style powered with live instrumentation and bordering pop, R&B, soul, and Caribbean influences.
Jaafar said, “While recording “Got Me Singing”, 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.”
His dynamic delivery builds from breathy verses into a show-stopping refrain as he croons the immediately irresistible hook, “Got me singing.” The uptempo beat infuses South American elements such as Brazil’s very own Baile Funk and 90’s house chords, the track is Jaafar’s introduction to his world.
“Got Me Singing” is the first taste of new music off of Jaafar’s forthcoming independent
full-length, Famous, which will be released on his birthday, July 25th.
