Pop R&B artist and grand-nephew to rock & roll pioneer Chuck Berry, JESSAME, aka Jessame Raz Berry, has released his new, original Christmas single “This Christmas” today exclusively on YouTube + SoundCloud – you can listen HERE. The song features a sample of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas” and is a slick, festive anthem that showcases JESSAME’s raw vocal energy soaring over the hooky groove. The official lyric video is also out now on YouTube – watch HERE.
“This Christmas” is the follow up of his previous single “Times We Had,” which was mixed by GRAMMY-award winning producer Focus… (Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez) and mastered by GRAMMY-award winning engineer Mauricio “Veto” Iragorri (Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem). The song was featured in the #1 spot on TIDAL’s “Rising: R&B” playlist and on the Joe Budden Podcast shortly after its release.
This year has been busy for the rising artist – aside from releasing his own music, he performed at The Brownstone ATL, headlined Hollywood’s infamous showcase “School Night”, played a sold-out show at the Peppermint Club in West Hollywood and toured with High School Nation. Jessame is currently signed to the team that’s been behind Anderson .Paak since 2013, Global Management Group, APC and is managed by .Paak House co-founder Carrie Lyn Taylor. Aside from music, Jessame is the brand ambassador for Onitsuka Tiger shoes, Hollister Co., and Oak & Jackal watches.
