Enter Austin Brown; nephew of a certain Michael and Janet Jackson (and son of one-time Pop star Rebbie Jackson).
The 25 year old is looking to continue the legacy of his iconic family by venturing into music. Mentored and executive produced by Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, Brown has been honing his craft since the age of 13 – with the fruits of such labour being his debut LP ’85’ (referencing his year of birth).
Set for release next year on his own imprint, Royal Factory, the album is preceded by lead single ‘Target Practice’ – which was produced by Jerkins. You can listen to the song below, as well as a preview of its Tom DeSanto-directed video. DeSanto is renown for his work on the ‘X-Men’ and ‘Transformer’ movies.
Do you think Austin has what it takes to further the Jackson legacy?
