New music: “Bed of Lies” JaeRene ft Ari Lennox
June 1, 2021

This year during the month of April the world lost a talented soul by the name of Jaelyn “JaeRene” Chapman. She was tragically killed by a drunk driver. The 19-year old singer was a community leader, songwriter, performer, and the younger cousin of award-winning singer, Ari Lennox.

Prior to her untimely passing, JaeRene had recorded a song by the name of “Bed of Lies”. The song was inspired by a chain of real-life situations consisting of dishonesty within relationships. It was JaeRene’s hope to have her cousin, Ari Lennox on this song. Ari received notice of JaeRene’s request after her passing and was honored to record a verse on the song.
 
“Jaelyn (JaeRene) means the world to me. Her immaculate voice has so much control, rifts, colors, and layers. I’m simply honored to be featured on this beautiful record she wrote, Bed of Lies. I’ve been a fan of hers ever since I heard her sing at the age of 9. Her debut EP is a true favorite of mine. Paradise and Ride or Die have been on repeat ever since.” – Ari Lennox
 
Bed of Lies is a single from JaeRene’s final project titled “Unfinished”, which features artists such as Z-Ro, Paul Wall, Marqus Clae, Inayah Lamis, and more. The talented artist had such a bright future ahead of her, but her family’s prayer is that her music will live on forever and that her fans and supporters will make wise decisions to not drink and drive. 

 

About JaeRene: Born and raised in the city that birthed a unique sound, diverse culture, and many national talents, JaeRene was the epitome of Houston. The self-proclaimed Houston R&B Princess made her mark on the music scene in a major way. She was no stranger to the stage as she won a plethora of local and national beauty pageants since the age of 4. Her personality, talent, and tenacity led her to perform at festivals, sporting events, concerts, and social events. 

Her diverse sound was featured on one of Houston’s most requested song, “H-Town For Real (Remix)”, which featured artists such as Kiotti, Paul Wall, Lil Flip, Kiotti, Trilly Polk, ZRo, and various Houston-based talents. In addition to singing, JaeRene also wrote her own music, which was often inspired by life situations. 

She was formerly a host of Kidz Jams on 953 Jamz where she encouraged teens to live out their dreams. Her community was something she loved, so she often hosted “Baddie Bootcamps” where she promoted positive self-esteem, body images, and confidence to young girls of the ages of 5-18.

REDMAN DROPS POWERFUL VISUAL FOR NEW SINGLE “BLACK MAN IN AMERICA”
September 13, 2019

AN EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE FROM REDMAN THAT MAKES AN IMPACTFUL STATEMENT FOR THE CULTURE

Hip-hop icon Redman released his newest single, “Black Man in America” today; and it’s perhaps his most poignant and culturally relevant message to date. With more than 20 years in the rap game, Redman brings wisdom, relevance and grace to a delicate subject impacting the world we live in.

Teaming up with Pressure on vocals and Riveting Entertainment for the visual, which he directed himself, Redman raps: “This black man made it in America. Can you believe how I did it? I had faith and God as my witness. I couldn’t just be an artist, I had to learn the business.” The visual takes the viewer on a journey through the trials and tribulations faced by minorities in America on a daily basis, including a police chase, a riot, vandalism and a startling, yet incredibly profound, scene in a church during a prayer group.

“The world and media inspired this video,” Redman said. “As an artist I felt it was a responsibility to shine the light on some of these subjects shown in my video. We living in a day and time where Internet and media rules and the outcome of that is more self destruction and racial tension.”

The fourth collaboration between Redman and Riveting, “Black Man in America” follows up 2018’s “I Love Hip-Hop”, “YA!” and “1990 Now”. “When the Funk Doc played me this song it was obvious right away how important the message was and his vision for the video was crystal clear,” said Andrew Listermann, CEO and executive producer at Riveting Entertainment. “It’s great when an artist knows exactly what he wants to accomplish and my job is to make that happen. I think Redman’s fans will connect with the finished product and it will hopefully help create a positive change in the world.”

“Black Man in America” is available on all streaming platforms and can be viewed here.
