As Jessica Jarrell gears up for her debut album, the 21-year-old songstress puts her twist on ’80s R&B records with her “U Remind Me” series.
Volume One, helmed by Grammy-nominated producer-songwriter Dem Jointz, features three songs and videos released as one. In the James McCloud-directed clip, which includes “All This Love,” “Indecisive Me,” and “FairyTales,” the former teen star delivers a variety of emotions.
“All This Love,” inspired by DeBarge’s 1982 track of the same name, kicks things off on the beach. As Jessica dances and sensually poses on the sand, she sings about a lover who’s “getting just a little bit too comfortable.”
Then, Jessica hits the streets for “Indecisive Me,” where she gets uptempo about her changing moods, and pays homage to Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation classic “Come Back to Me.”
The clip ends in a forest, with JJ climbing trees, singing about the love she “never knew” on “FairyTales,” inspired by Al B. Sure’s “Oooh This Love Is So” off 1988’s In Effect Mode.
