As part of my blogging mission, I feel it is my duty to inform you when a singer with the last name of Jackson has new music out.
Well…not really part of my mission. I saw it, I thought it was interesting, I blogged about it. That’s pretty much the whole gamut of reasoning right there.
Since the title gives it away, yes it is Tito—not a Janet single from her last album, nor something from Michael that was kept in the vaults unreleased for years—but the one Jackson that mostly functioned as the butt of jokes, or played his guitar in the background while his brothers—one in particular—stood out.
It’s not like Tito hasn’t taken the microphone on record before; as one example, he did sing “We Can Change The World” on the Jacksons Victory album years ago. But now, we have new music from him: a single called “Get It Baby.”
Color me surprised to hear that he even was putting out any music, let alone something like this. It’s not bad; but I don’t know that I’ll be adding it, or anything from his upcoming album, Tito Time, when it is released in the fall.
But how do you feel about Tito’s work? Will you jam it, or slam it?
A hat tip to Lady G from Seekthebestblog by way of the great Berry Gordy for the parentheticals on the poll responses! I think I’ll be using them for the ensuing “Jam It Or Slam It” posts going forward.
