JHARREL JEROME RELEASES NEW SINGLE “CHINATOWN”
Hip-hop artist and award-winning actor Jharrel Jerome releases his highly-anticipated new single, “Chinatown”.
The track is the first tease of new music off his forthcoming debut project, Someone I’m Not, out later this year. The project will be released in a 4-part series of packs, each showcasing a different side to Jharrel. The first pack, Rap Pack, is available to pre-save now here.
Co-written by Jharrel and inspired by his hometown of New York City, “Chinatown” is a thoughtful and impressive showcase from the rising artist that allows him to flex his deft and dynamic lyrical skills. The track’s airy, piano-driven production, punctuated by flurries of strings, horns, and sounds of bustling subway cars, beckons listeners further into Jharrel’s world.
Racking up over 5.5M streams on Spotify alone with his debut release “For Real (feat. Kemba),” Jharrel has continued to make waves as an artist-to-watch, garnering acclaim from Billboard, UPROXX, BuzzFeed, Essence, and more. He followed things up with his 2022 single “Someone I’m Not,” which The FADER praised for “the beat’s soulful motions and Jerome’s punched, introspective bars.”
This year on screen, Jharrel will star in and serve as an executive producer on the Amazon series I’m A Virgo by writer-director Boots Riley, releasing in June 2023. He will soon after be seen co-starring in the Steven Soderbergh HBO Max series Full Circle, and will star as wrestler Anthony Robles alongside Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming film, Unstoppable, from Artists Equity and Amazon.
