Jaafar Jackson launches his solo career with debut single “Got Me Singing”

Given the legendary lineage of the Jackson family, music might be hardwired into Jaafar Jackson’s DNA. The son of Jermaine Jackson, Jaafar gravitated towards piano at just 12-years-old and immersed himself in songwriting and performing, spending countless hours on his craft. At the same time, he developed a heightened musical palette, spanning everything from film scores to icons such as his dad Jermaine, aunt Janet, late uncle Michael, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Johnny Mathis, and many more. Meeting French-Congolese creative Hardy Indiigo (Madonna, Carlos Santana), he unlocked an infectious and international energy through merging Afro-Latin sensibilities and pop R&B ambition to create a sound uniquely his own.

Recently Jaafar made his official debut with the single and music video for “Got Me Singing,” an uptempo R&B track tinctured with Latin inspired rhythms and Jaafar’s show-stopping vocals.

About the song, 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.”

“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.
