Over the past few years VH1 has doneÂ a pretty good job of highlighting upcoming or overlooked artists (Jazmine Sullivan, Corrine Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse, Chrisette Michele, Estelle, Franz Ferdinand, Sara Bareilles, etc…) so I tend to pay attention when I see their “You Oughta Know” logo pop on the screen.
SoÂ while flipping through channels this morning I landed upon Little Jackie, a duo consisting of vocalist Imani Coppola and DJ/Programmer Adam Palin.Â The song “The World Should Revovle Around Me,” has that summer/block party feel that lets either zone to theÂ instrumental or actually pay attention to the lyrics.
They may or may not be the next big thing, but they made me bob my head on a rainy Tuesday morning and that a good enough start for me.
Oh yeah, if Imani looks familiar to you, it’s from this.
