Rediscover: Coco Jones

“Roxie, I’m sorry.” It was 2012 and, on Disney Channel, the iconic duet between Cyrus and Roxanne aired in the movie Let It Shine. It’s been 12 years already, but we can finally say Coco Jones is not just a kid’s icon anymore.

Disney, Independent Music & Present 

Singer, songwriter and actress, Jones initially pursued an acting career and quickly became a teen idol. You’ll probably remember her performances as Roxanne (Let It Shine) and Kelsey (Good Luck Charlie).

Later, she signed a contract for Hollywood Records and debuted as an independent artist with them (2014-2022). In March 2022, she announced a new deal with High Standardz and Def Jam Recordings. Since then, a lot has changed. Starting from the release of the track “ICU,” which entered the Billboard Hot 100, received a platinum certification, and won the GRAMMY Award for Best R&B Performance. The award was among five total nominations Jones received at the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards—which included herself as a nominee for Best New Artist.

With some solid influences, such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Etta James and Brandy Norwood, Coco Jones is one of the most interesting artists of this contemporary R&B wave. She has also had several notable collaborations. Some of those include BJ the Chicago Kid, Renee Rapp on “Tummy Hurts,” Brent Faiyaz on “A Moment of Your Life” and Justin Timberlake on “ICU (Remix).”

New Single “Here We Go (Uh Oh)”

Most recently, Coco Jones has dropped a new single called “Here We Go (Uh Oh).” This track marks her first release of 2024, adding to her string of impactful musical moments. The song delves into the relentless cycle of heartbreak, exploring the struggle to break free from past relationships.

“Here We Go (Uh Oh)” serves as a precursor to Coco Jones’ upcoming full-length album, promising more soulful storytelling and captivating performances from the Columbia-born artist.
