Video: Bobby Brackins ft. Zendaya & Jeremih – “My Jam”

Buzzfeed Premieres Sizzling New Video, Filmed in Puerto Rico


Critical Praise for Bobby Brackins:

“Brackins has such a specific voice, which is obviously a great quality in a rapper—it’s pinched and rangy, a scratchy pop-art alto that counters the smooth edges around him.”Jezebel

We expect to hear much more greatness from Bobby in the future.” – Karen Civil

“…such an addictive bounce repeat listens happen without intention.” – The Smoking Section

“‘Hot Box’ is a steaming track that you’ll find yourself humming instantly.” – XXL

“Brackins sounds like a seasoned vet as he displays his charismatic delivery.”Complex

A sensuous, blunted bit of ratchet R&B.” – HotNewHipHop

The Video:

“It’s amaaaaaaazing,” said MTV, regarding the colorful, new video for rapper/songwriter Bobby Brackins’ “My Jam” featuring young starlet Zendaya and R&B singer Jeremih.  Buzzfeed, who premiered the video described the radio-ready single as “a great laid-back party anthem that sounds like how the best summer nights feel – airy, easy-going, and a little sexy,” while Stereogum added “‘My Jam’ follows in the long lineage of songs like ‘Happy’ that can be enjoyed with the same enthusiasm by anyone from 9 to 90.” Jezebel premiered the mp3 last week and Teen Vogue premiered an exclusive clip. Filmed under the red hot sun of Puerto Rico, the video shows the trio enjoying beautiful sights and each other’s company, springing us forward to hot summer nights with strong party vibes.

Holding a track record of penning #1 singles for everyone from Tinashe to Chris Brown and more, Bobby Brackins successfully delivered another banger with “My Jam.” “A song like ‘My Jam’ is going to transcend generations. It’s one of those universal records that has qualities people of all walks of life can enjoy,” Bobby tells Buzzfeed. “I wanted the video to feel real and organic, not staged or scripted and I feel we accomplished that.” Says Zendaya, “It’s always awesome working with Bobby. I’ve known him since I was 12 and he’s like a big brother to me. We have a great time in studio and we just make good music,” adding, “We’ve always had great chemistry. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more active in the process and I’m more involved in the writing and creating the melodies which is really great because Bobby’s always very open to collaboration.”

Last week Bobby was featured in a Forbes interview where he spoke about his career as a hit songwriter, expressing that he’s taking on the biz as a solo artist. This is setting up to be a big year for Bobby Brackins, as Noisey stated in a recent interview, he wrote two of the biggest songs of 2014 – winning his first BMI Award for songwriting credits on Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” and earning industry praises for writing Tinashe’s “2 On,” which Billboard named the #1 R&B Track of the Year. This comes in addition to Bobby Brackins’ own hit single, “Hot Box,” featuring G-Eazy and Mila J, which holds over 4M plays on SoundCloud and 1.5M on YouTube. With “My Jam” currently #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, the Grammy-nominated, Oakland-bred artist is ready to step into the spotlight as a writer, rapper, and solo act who’s carving the new California sound.

The Background:

Amidst a wave of self-made songwriters, artists and producers, Oakland, California’s Bobby Brackins is at the forefront. With over 25 million YouTube plays, and international radio spins, the established soloist who has written a litany of artists including Zendaya, Trey Songz, and Jeremih is finally coming into his own. Following high school, Bobby Brackins relocated to Los Angeles alongside his producer and close friend, Nic Nac. “I wanted to keep making music with Nic, and I knew that L.A. was more industry-based. That’s where the labels and well-connected managers were,” Bobby Brackins states. Taking advantage of the web early on to brand himself the artist has had a slew of success working with countless artists which led to Bobby Brackins penning and co-producing a #1 record for Chris Brown in “Loyal,” as well as helping Tinashe find the traction necessary to earn a major label album release date with her lead single, “2 On.” The credit is there, is as the chart and viral reaction, assuring the world that Bobby Brackins has his pen, production, and pulse on the people.
