Eeekk!! Breaking News! I must be psychic. I put together this post on Jhameel and had it ready to go last night. Then low and behold, hours after I post it, he puts out a new song! Blog Addition! Read the post below, but not before checking out the first song in his 5 song music series “You Are Free”. Its definitely a Jhameel kind of day! His next song will be out next Tuesday. So keep in the know.
Toe Jams has been a fan of Jhameel since his friends in Barbara sent me his song “Human Condition” over a year ago. Click HERE to read that post because I was an instant fan. I knew this musical prodigy would have fans flocking to him in no time.
Jhameel is a true and honest artist and I love that. Someone who’s heart is always in it. When Jhameel was trying to make his first music video, he put out a request for any donations possible, but not without appreciation. For any support he received he would send a special homemade gift. My one of a kind Jhameel oragami still sits proudly in our living room.
His first video was for a song called “Shut Up” which is a party staple for everyone. I dare you to sit still. This track is off his Dance EP and is an album that I get asked about a lot. Make sure to check his website for ALL of his tunes.
He has since put out 2 more videos and his newest release for the song White Lie reminds me why I love inhibition. For those who know me personally I LOVE to dance. I am by no means a good dancer, but I love to dance none the less. I love that Jhameel looks like he has been possessed by the beat and given his body up to this beast of a song. He reminds me of a male Robyn in this video and his intensity is infectious. Not to mention, the song is gold.
He has never played Canada, but from the sounds of his tweets, Americans are taking notice of this gem. He recently collaberated with and opened for NYC, up and comer Hoodie Allen. So keep your eye and ear on this guy because he’ll be infiltrating your ipod sooner than later.
