Wrapping up our busiest, most exciting and first premiere week of the year, we have teamed up with Jackson Turner for the premiere of his new music video for the single “New Beginnings” feat. Danish Singer/Songwriter Lisa Rowe, whose known for her well-received collaboration with artists Virtual Riot, Culture Code, Nyx & Syrinx and Nik & Jay.
It’s a funny thing how most of the best songs out there are those who deal with breakup. Perhaps this hardly seems to makes any sense, but there’s no shortage of broken hearts in the world, we can all relate and Jackson Turner’s latest single, “New Beginnings” proves this to be true yet again.
Jackson Turner’s new album The Foundation represents the new sound and direction of Jackson’s music. The album tries to get back to the roots of classic hip-hop, while at the same time staying innovative and relevant to contemporary sounds. “New Beginnings” is a brilliant encapsulation of blending old and new school together, as verses are fired off with authority alongside a soothing and lush backbone. Instantly captivating, the powerful combination of rapper Jackson Turner’s hard-hitting, crystal clear lyrics (something weird to find on this scene in particular, even with those trying to make a difference) highlighting the impending demise of a long romantic relationship paired with rising star Lisa Rowe’s instantly memorable vocals might be exactly what you need regardless of whether or not there’s trouble in paradise.
Turner and Rowe are a match made in heaven, playing off each other’s talents in a way that gives us all hope. Despite the inherent sadness of their devolving connection the song manages to reveal the cathartic reality of the situation… this might be the very best thing to happen to both of them, as is often the case. It might just be the right time to seek out new beginnings.
Turner approaches “New Beginnings” with the attitude of less is more. There are no flashy computer graphics, action sequences, or crazy lights and colors coming out of the screen. Instead, Turner and Rowe take center stage in this black and white piece, trading screen time to deliver their respective vocals. In between these performances they wander about their days with a palpable sense of loneliness and emptiness never far away. The quiet resignation in each of them speaks volumes and is an ample amount of emotion to carry this video to maximum impact.
