EJ Jackson Releases New Music w/ 1KPhew & Receives Head Nod From Lecrae
EJ Jackson is back with his first promotional single of 2020! His latest single features Hip Hop artist 1K Phew of Reach Records and is now available worldwide! EJ Jackson is a prolific talent all on his own, but has shared the stage with other greats such as PJ Morton, Mali Music and many more. ArtSoul Radio had the opportunity to speak with EJ Jackson briefly about this latest single release and his musical journey.
1) ARTSOUL: How long have you been singing and writing music?
EJ JACKSON: I was always a singer. I’ve been singing ever since the age of 3. Started writing heavily in my teenage years. Been releasing music ever since 2013. However, I can truly say that 7 years later (in my mid twenties) I know exactly what I want to say.
2) ARTSOUL: What was the inspiration behind this song?
EJ JACKSON: “On My Grind” is a song addressing anybody and everybody that has ever doubted or questioned my movement thus far. I wrote the song back in June 2018 along with some of my other popular songs like “Back Around” ft ELHAE which is currently sitting at 1 million streams. At that time my team and I were just pushing out hit after hit.
3) ARTSOUL: It’s not easy to get an artist like 1KPhew on your track. How did that happen?
EJ JACKSON: It was crazy! I had a rap on the second verse but I wanted to take things a step further. We sent it over to Lecrae’s camp and they played it for Phew and he was messing with it. When they sent his draft over I was blown away. He really did his thing.
4) ARTSOUL: How did it feel to see Lecrae shouting you out for your new single?
EJ JACKSON: That was huge! Definitely a milestone in my career. It means a lot to me. That man has Grammys! (Laughs) I mean, he’s done all this crazy stuff with Ty Dolla $ign and Tori Kelly….. the list goes on and on! He’s one of the ones that are pushing faith to mainstream and I support it 100%.
5) ARTSOUL: What can we expect from you next?
EJ JACKSON: I have a lot of music in the vault. Working on some more collaborations as we speak. I’ll definitely be dropping before the year is out for sure. Keep your eyes and ears open.
EJ Jackson continues to make heads turn with his rich and soulful sound. With his versatility and skillfulness, he has no limits! We’re excited to see what’s next for this independent artist.
