Meet the Jada Girls
Four extraordinary singers united by a common goal, Jada is the latest iteration of the classic female vocal group. Since coming together, all four members have devoted themselves heart and soul to Jada. Their self-titled debut marks the culmination of a remarkable journey in which these talented individuals came together to create a beautifully cohesive whole. From the album-opening ballad “Is It Love” to the sassy RedOne/Akon-produced first single, American Cowboy, Jada is a bright and brazen mix of pop, soul, dance, and R&B, spiced by Jada’s characteristic gospel-inspired harmonies. The powerhouse sound is not dissimilar to the girls themselves – soulful and sophisticated, sexy and strong, heartfelt and honest, flirty and fun.
Songs and Performances
On November 20, 2012, Jada released the song, Stop My Heart, on Jay Dabhi’s album, The WeekEND. The album debuted in the iTunes Top 100 Dance Albums! Featured vocals include Jada, G-Deep, MMAIO Fan Page, Real Kelvin Scott & Sagi-Rei. You can download Jada’s new song now from Soltrenz Records/ Strictly Rhythm on iTunes! Read the full story here on the album’s release.
Their new five song EP, Supersonique, follows on the heels of their Rio-produced single, This Party’s On Fire, and their Universal Motown releases – Break Up Song, produced by Wayne Wilkins & Andrew Frampton (Britney Spears/Natasha Bedingfield) and their international hit single American Cowboy, produced by Akon and RedOne (Lady Gaga). The group’s songs have been featured on FOX’s House, MTV’s The City, and on the Bring It On-In It To Win It soundtrack. The American Cowboy music video was directed by Ray Kay, one of the most sought-after music video directors in the music industry.
The group has wowed audiences with their boundless talent and irrepressible energy at countless fairs, festivals, televised events, concerts and major sporting events including such venues as Madison Square Garden, the TD Garden, the Comcast Center, Gillette Stadium, Hershey Park, Six Flags and Disney’s Pleasure Island.
They have performed the National Anthem for the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, the Boston Celtics Playoff Series, the Boston Bruins and the National Boxing Championships. Jada has also shared the stage with The Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Ciara, Jesse McCartney, Flo Rida, Boyz II Men, Sean Kingston, All American Rejects and countless others. The group has toured extensively throughout the US in support of their single releases with Simon Mall D’Tour Live, Radio Disney Summer Concert Series and a National Top 40 Radio Concert Tour.
Musical Style and Influences
Jada is known for their mix of pop music, soul, dance, and R&B styling, and their gospel-inspired harmonies. Each singer has her own individual style. Jacyn’s voice stems from tastes of pop and rock from the musicians Pink to Paramore. April focuses on a hip-hop and urban sound and fashion from the likes of T.I. and Timbaland. Lauren has influences from suburban Philadelphia in neo-soul legends like Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild. Finally, Elle has a unique style in her own with hints of Rascal Flatts and John Legend to Lady Gaga.
