Jesse McCartney's new single is 'Superbad' and he continues to see super success. This time, it's on his terms. McCartney not only released a new single, he did it on his own record label. The 27-year-old artist launched 808 Records and his first record release 'In Technicolor' is due out this summer.
If you're a fan of the young pop star you are sure to get your money's worth. With it being on his own label, McCartney says he put more of himself into this record than perhaps any other. This is his fifth record. He not only had to worry about the creative part but also the business behind it.
The sound on 'In Technicolor' is influenced by music he loved growing up, Michael Jackson, Kool and The Gang, Earth Wind & Fire. It has an R&B funk feel that is sure to get the girls dancing. Upon hearing of his new release one fan tweeted "Jesse McCartney has a new song I'm crying."
McCartney was in a band at 12-years-old, 'Dream Street'. He also rose through the acting ranks starring in the soap 'All My Children'.
In my L.A. Q/A with the young star you can see the all-grown-up influence in some of his answers. He's more Farmers Market than Knotts Berry Farm. He's more Disney Concert Hall than Disneyland. Fans, perhaps you'll one day spot McCartney in one of these Southern California hotspots.
