Along with the new song, “Mountain Valley” the video directed by Shawn Thomas of Canadian Film Coalition has hit over 1.1 Million Views on Youtube, 900,000 Streams on Spotify, and climbing the charts on Shazam in Canada.
The vibrant and energetic clip was shot over the span of a few days between Los Angeles and Malibu, California, and comes as Jackson’s first visual offering since tapping Jim Jones for “Fell” back in February 2021.
Jackson’s new album In God’s Hands will be his first project since releasing his 23 & A Half EP in June
2020. Along with Trey Songz, it will feature 2021 BET Hip Hop Award-winner Yung Bleu and more.
“Mountain Valley” is available now for pre-save and pre-order on digital streaming platforms. The single
will be available everywhere on Friday, Feb. 11, while the video is expected to drop Wednesday, Feb. 18.
