Johnta Austin - Take It Back

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Jermaine Dupri
Album:
Unreleased

Fresh off a series of label switches culminating in his recent dismissal from Island Def Jam, Johnta Austin is currently hunting for distribution for his myriad forthcoming projects, including shelved debut album Ocean Drive. To this end, the A-Town native has released a brand new single.  Pondering how to liven up an on-the-rocks relationship, Johnta decides to Take It Back to the day he and his woman first met and danced together; if he can recapture that feeling, the rest should go smoothly.  Johnta’s rhythmic vocal patterns, along with Jermaine Dupri‘s smooth, piano-driven beat and a Do or Die-esque rap on the back end, add up to another catchy, laid-back hit.  Take It Back should go a long way towards convincing labels that Austin’s a wise investment—personally, I still believe that, when Ocean Drive is finally released, it’s gonna do big numbers on the charts!
