JACOB LATIMORE Releases “The Real”, Announces Debut Album ‘Connection’ Coming Soon [New Music]

Rising R&B artist Jacob Latimore has released “The Real,” the first track from his debut album CONNECTION, which is set for a December 9th release through Jacobs Ink/Empire.

The official single, which features Ishdarr and was produced by Ayo & Keyz and Mantra, is available right now, and you can also pre-order CONNECTION on iTunes.

Featuring production from the likes of Chris Henderson (Jamie Foxx), Mel & Mus (Chris Brown/Justin Bieber/Rihanna/Nicki Minaj), Big Fruit (Lil Wayne/Yo Gotti/K Camp/Plies), SK (Trey Songz) and Ayo The Producer (Chris Brown/Rick Ross/Bryson Tiller), to name but a few, the album sees the Atlanta-based Latimore delivering on the promise shown with previous hits “Remember Me” and “Climb,” which have amassed close to 7 million combined streams (and both of which are featured on the project).

More Info About Jacob

As if his musical talents weren’t impressive enough, Latimore has also emerged as one of the most promising acting talents of his generation. This holiday season, he’ll be seen alongside Will Smith, Michael Pena, Edward Norton, Helen Mirren and Keira Knightley in the Warner Bros. film Collateral Beauty, directed by Oscar-winner David Frankel. Jacob recently completed production on a yet-to be named crime drama with Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow and her Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal. The film chronicles a police raid in Detroit in 1967 which resulted in one of the largest citizen uprisings in the United States’ history. Also coming up is the film Krystal, with Latimore joining William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, Kathy Bates and Rosario Dawson in a dramatic comedy marking the directorial debut of actor William.

A Milwaukee native, Latimore was featured in two of 2014’s biggest box office hits, co-starring as “Ramon” in Universal Pictures’ Ride Along starring Ice Cube, Kevin Hart and John Leguizamo, and in 20th Century Fox’s sci-fi thriller The Maze Runner. In 2013, he starred as Langston in Fox Searchlight’s Black Nativity, working with alongside Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Tyrese Gibson, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige and Nas. He made his feature film debut in a lead role in Magnet Releasing’s 2010 post-apocalyptic thriller Vanishing on 7th Street, starring Hayden Christensen and John Leguizamo.

SFPL Music: Jacob Latimore – “Remember Me”

jacob-remember-me

On the independent flow of things since his departure from RCA Records, singer/songwriter Jacob Latimore gears up for his upcoming EP and releases a new mid-tempo tune entitled “Remember Me,” the follow-up to his current track “Climb“.

The official song premiered on Ebro Darden‘s Beats 1 radio show and quickly climbed to #35 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts, which marks Jacob’s highest chart peak in his career.

Giving off the timeless vibes of the late Michael Jackson in song, Jacob confronts that fact the feelings are still very strong between he and a past love interest.

I know when we touch

You’ll fall back in love girl

We know what it was

Remember lovin’ me[?]

Jacob says:

“I feel like a new artist, I am 19 years old, I found my pocket, I’m recording some great records! I fell in love with “Remember Me” because it felt timeless, from the melodies to the lyrics, if MJ was alive I believe he would love it. When Beyonce hears it she’s going to love it too, lol! Anybody that loves “good” music will understand what I’m saying when they hear this.” 

Pairing up with his new single, Jacob is launching the #RememberMeChallenge on the popular app Triller. By downloading the Triller app, fans will have the opportunity to make their very own music video for “Remember Me” and the winner gets a special Skype session with Jacob himself.
