Today, rising R&B star and Bel Air actress Coco Jones releases a live performance for her Amazon Original song entitled “Love Is War.” Released as part of “Credit the Culture,” Amazon Music’s celebration of Black Music Month, the stunning new song can be heard now only on Amazon Music on the R&B Rotation playlist.
“I hope my fans see growth in me, they’ve seen me since I was a kid. I hope they see my journey and think to themselves ‘wow, that took Coco a long time, maybe my journey taking a long time is okay too,’” said Coco Jones about the track.
Coco Jones’ Amazon Original is just the latest part of “Credit the Culture,” Amazon Music’s ongoing celebration of Black Music Month. As part of “Credit the Culture” Amazon Music will be releasing additional Amazon Originals from some of the most exciting new artists, including rapper/R&B crooner Yung Bleu; artist, producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist bLAck pARty; and more.
