K’Jon - On The Ocean

I Get Around

As fun as it can be to splash around in one of the Midwest’s many murky lakes, the experience simply doesn’t stack up to a summer day spent watching the tide roll in and out on a sunny saltwater beach.  Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, rising R&B star K’Jon is acutely aware of this lack—thus, on his Booth debut, the singer’s elected to treat his fellow Middle-Americans to a little breezy coastal ambiance.  Originally released independently in late ‘07, On The Ocean has been selected as the official lead single off Jon’s forthcoming I Get Around LP, and it’s not hard to see why—backed by a mellow, bossa nova-flavored blend of piano and acoustic guitar,  (courtesy of K’Jon and Proteus), this summer jam demands to be enjoyed with an umbrella drink in hand, and the singer’s ever-so-slightly weathered vocals drip with old-school soul.  This is one hard record to dislike, and those looking for more infectiously sunny cuts will likely find what they’re craving on K’Jon’s major-label debut, set to drop August 4th via Up & Up/Universal Republic.  In addition, stay tuned for this single’s Rik Cordero-directed music video, shot yesterday in Detroit.
