Although singer-songwriter and violinist Imani Coppola has had several brushes with fame, most notably the 1997 top 40 hit “Legend Of A Cowgirl,” her music has never made a lasting connection with the general public. In 2008, after forming the pop music duo Little Jackie with producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Pallin, Coppola had another close call with the mainstream with the infectious single “The World Should Revolve Around Me,” which received significant radio play around the United States, but still failed to chart within the top 40.
Fast forward to 2014, and you will find that Brooklyn’s Little Jackie is back with another fantastic new single titled “Sweet.” Backed by an insanely catchy groove and lyrics that make you want to get up and move, “Sweet” is an effortlessly excellent feel-good ditty that radio could easily warm to. “Sweet” is the kind of song that makes you want to turn up the volume, sing along, and maybe even do a little dance, and then replay it over and over again. In the current environment of pop music, where people seem to be jumping on the unlistenable EDM bandwagon in droves, there are very few songs for which I can say that.
“Sweet” is the lead single from Little Jackie’s forthcoming third studio album, Queen of Prospect Park, which will be released on September 30th via iTunes.
