Damar Jackson is bringing back the REAL R&B vibes with this record with one of the catchiest yet simplistic hooks to start off the year right! Stay tuned from more from Damar as he takes the path of becoming the next R&B superstar.
Damar Jackson has become a top R&B voice, especially in the south. Years of features are soon to release as well as two compilation projects, and an Unfaithful follow-up that he claims is his finest writing and performing to date. With social media savvy, he also embraces this era. “There are people out there who still haven’t heard me. Lil Wayne’s one of the biggest artists in the world, and he still introduces himself when he goes on stage. There’s a reason for that. You can never stop working.” In an era of trusting the process, Damar Jackson’s story is one of faith and fire. The man from the small town has a big voice, and he’s reaching even bigger dreams.
This Compton x Louisiana collaboration is undeniably a hit! Being released only two days ago and peaking 16,000 plays already on Soundcloud, the ladies have begun creating their instagram videos singing along to this catch hooky which features both Kalan & Damar.
Damar pulled up to the studio we started listening to a few beats and we was like this the one. We started going through melodies and the vibe was just there. We went back and forth on that hook it start reminding me of that Jamie Foxx episode when they was singing “plain white rice”, naw but in all seriousness Damar a great artist I’m progressing over time it wasn’t no pissing contest we just went in there and knocked out a banger. – Kalan.FrFr
I knew the song was gonna be something special because this was a real collaboration, where two artist create together in the studio and not email. Everything that happened was priceless because music is a moment and was took advantage of it and created Love Song.– Damar Jackson
“Retawded is something that’s big in our culture in Louisiana. We use this term in a good way and soon as I heard the beat I knew I was going go crazy. This song touches a lot of people in every city and small town because we all have a Martin Luther King street around the world. And as far as the south, we all know about Circle K. This is the song of the summer with the tempo and bounce. Me and Gucci chopped it up and he knew, as soon as he heard it, that it was a hit. I respect him for rocking wit me and recognizing my art. This is just the beginning of me becoming the new face of RnB.”
Only dropping the visual yesterday (Thursday, June 7th) Retawded has already hit over a million+ views! This record has been taking over the clubs and hitting mainstream stations all over. Make sure to check out video below!

Love is that emotion that can drive you wild with passion and just as insane with pain. Right when you think you have love under control, it spirals out of your grasp and the outcome can be disastrous. R&B’s new vocal star, Damar Jackson explores this very theme in his new video “Everything”. Set to the tune of a piano caressed track and stripped down sound scape, D.J. let’s his sidepiece know how much she is adored, amid the pressing issue of dealing with his main squeeze: “You make me feel the way that she don’t girl/You give me everything that she won’t girl…” The trials and tribulations of lust and love.
“‘Everything’ is a song about a certain person that was rocking wit’ me while I was going through a real toxic relationship. Everything I couldn’t talk to my girl about, I could talk to this other girl about. We ended up being close but my loyalty was still to my girl. So I never told anybody about this one special girl that was there for me,” Damar explains. “The passion in this song shows how much you can connect with somebody but still love someone else.”
The video, however, begins with a scene that many people of color can say they have dealt with, blatant racism in an establishment that goes unchecked in full. “This video takes you through real life situations in Louisiana. How racism is still alive and how we deal with violence within our own communities,” says D.J.
Having the two dueling themes of love and race issues visually clash makes for a mix of emotions when you watch “Everything.” The director, Cinemadona, works the angles just right to get the story across on screen. Yet, that love triangle still tugs at your core when you hear the pain in Damar’s main girl’s voice. “We don’t have many resources, so we love real hard and take loyalty very serious. You will see how I spend a lot of time with the person that I can’t be with. We share moments that allow us to grow but loyalty keeps me with the one I started with,” Damar maintains.

R&B newcomer Damar Jackson is about to take the music scene by storm. Although, Damar has already had credited success as co-writer and co-producer for K-Camp’s hit single “Comfortable,” he wants the world to hear his own voice singing his hits. His single “Club Again” featuring Yo Gotti, off of his newest project Unfaithful, was inspired by a personal experience of his. Damar says…
“I was thinking about my ex and how she really had sex with another n*gga right after we broke up…so club again means I’m back single and out here living. It’s a celebratory song about a real life situation of me walking back into the club/single life.”
