Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) — Legendary guitarist, Tito Jackson, considered the quieter member of perhaps the greatest musical family in the history of music – The Jacksons, has stepped out on vocals with the release of his new single “One Way Street.”
In just one week, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s cut was the second most added song at radio stations across the country.
“One Way Street” features the remix from hot producer Gregg Pagani, who also worked with hit-makers Charlie Wilson (“Uncle Charlie,” “Just Charlie,” “In It To Win It”) and Johnny Gill (“Game Changer,” “Soul Of A Woman”), and is considered one of the hottest producers today. The track is the tale of a bad romance, with finger pops and a haunting background leading into a memorable hook, and Tito’s lead.
“Performing beside my brothers on stage has been a wonderful blessing for me, for decades. Introducing “One Way Street” at this time, in my career, is an ideal platform for me to share my solo project with our loyal fans, and hopefully gain new ones along the way,” stated Tito.
On working with Gregg Pagani, Tito says, “It was an honor working with Gregg. I thanked him for his magical touch on ‘One Way Street.’ It takes a special talent to take the music of seasoned, veteran artists like me, Charlie and Johnny and make the song relevant and popular to a new generation.”
“One Way Street,” distributed by Beat Root Music, on Tito’s independent label Play It Right Entertainment, is now available on iTunes and all digital music platforms.
Fresh off the leg of The Jacksons European concert, fans will get the chance to see Tito perform “One Way Street,” along with performances of mega-classics by The Jacksons, as they experience the magic of these legends live on stage during their U.S. shows in Morganton, NC at Municipal Auditorium on September 5, and Atlanta, GA at Wolf Creek Amphitheater on September 7, 2019.
Tito’s initial success with recording masterpieces, “I Want You Back,” “Never Can Say Goodbye,” “I’ll Be There,” and other mega-hits is the genesis of an untiring trek into modern musical immortality. His musical arrow is aimed in the direction of diverse genres, R&B, blues and pop. He has also collaborated with his sons Taj, Taryll, and TJ, of the group 3T.
A renown international artist, Tito’s modest and reserved persona, and as an astounding guitarist, has garnered enormous respect from his peers and fans worldwide. His emphasis on fairness and loyalty in the music business community is a hallmark of his cool and selfless style.
Tito’s mark on music history and the rich legacy that he has established is one that has stood the test of time.
The Jacksons are inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have five #1 albums, 18 #1 hits, 17 top 10 albums, 17 top 40 singles, which include their most notable songs.
