Jackie Jackson Releases New Single

  • on: March 05, 2011, 03:58:19 PM
Jackie Jackson, former member of the legendary Jackson 5 and oldest brother to music icon Michael Jackson, released his new single, “We Know What’s Going On,” through his label, Siggy Music. Starting today, U.S. fans can purchase the single through iTunes.  

The single is Jackson’s first solo release since the 1989 release of his album, Be The One.  Jackson co-wrote and produced the track with British Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer, Steve DuBerry.

The dance tune features Jackson’s soulful voice over up-tempo beats with lyrics encouraging unity and the end of hatred.  Furthering this notion, the song features an excerpt from a speech Jackson’s late brother, Michael, gave in 2002, in which he says:

“Together we can change the world, / Together we can help to stop racism. / Together we can help to stop prejudice. / We can help the world live without fear.”

Outside the U.S., fans can expect to hear different remixes of the song as well as features by local artists.  Jackson will appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show on November 4th to promote the single

I watch Jackie on twitter and this song he talks about really intrigued me.  The words are so Michael's message that I wondered who wrote it.  Besides the title of knowing what's going on.  Come on, they have to be messing with us.  It has to be that way as they could've ended us all along, plus with Pearl Jr. out there!  This song is telling us something!!

And I guess legally it's alright to used Michael's voice in his song??  So can anyone?  Like Joe using Michael's face for his perfume...or Katherine for the book.  I just have to presume that Michael allows what HE wants.  Cool by ME.
I'm going to listen to this new song.

Gosh...I need to stay off this!!!!!
Here's the lyrics...WHAT DO YOU THINK jACKIE IS WANTING TO TELL US??

We Know What's Going On
By Jackie Jackson

Have you heard the news
The choice is up to you
It's time for us to come together now

What are you waiting for?
We can't take no more
We got to chase the dream

We can make that change
I know you feel the same
Call all your friends and shout it out

We're going to take the lead
We're going to make history
We're not goin' hesitate
We're going to celebrate

Everybody
See, you know what's going on
But together, we're too strong
And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)

Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we're going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)
Cause we know what's going on
Now we understand
Let's go hand in hand
I know we can build a brand new day

What are you waiting for?
We can't take no more
We're going to chase the dream

To build on your own
But you're not alone
Together, let's unite
And fight away

We're going to take the lead
We're going to make history
We're not goin' hesitate
We're going to celebrate

Everybody
See, you know what's going on
But together, we're too strong
And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)
Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we're going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)
Cause we know what's going on

Oh!
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
Have you heard the news
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
Have you hear the news

Everybody

I believe that this song not the wrote Jackie, and managers  say nothing about the use of the voice and the name of Michael :roll:
