Oklahoma musician a rising star

When most people think of musicians from Oklahoma, they think of country music greats like Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks and Cary Underwood.

Many do not realize that the state of Oklahoma has a widely untapped R&B/Hip-Hop fan base as well as many talented R&B/Hip-Hop artists.

One of Oklahoma’s own music artists Super Jay is on a one-way track to super stardom in the music world.

With the help of independent record labels Presidential Trap House and Malaco, Super Jay has released several hit songs that are not just receiving local fanfare but are being played on radio stations all over the U.S.

 

“On the Set,” a single released in late 2010, is a smooth-tempo love song in which Super Jay professes his undying love for his woman.

The video was shot locally and is very much up to par. Filmed in black-and- white, this video has a surprise ending that will make any woman who is not with SJ jealous with envy.

On the track “So Excited,” by Oklahoma Rapper Young Star, Super Jay stole the show during his bridge towards the end of this club jam.

The song “Moan” is one of his many tracks for grown folks. This song simultaneously displays a slow rhythm while keeping an eclectic beat which flows well with Super Jay’s velvety vocals.

Sha Sha Jones, another seriously talented artist from Oklahoma, collaborated with Super Jay for the sure-to-be-a hit song “Lose You,” and this feel-good duet is desperately needed in the world of R&B.

Listeners can tell by her voice that Sha Sha is beautiful, but she comes across as humble with an angelic voice. She is wanting to save her relationship, although she is fed up.

Super Jay lays out his sexy croons while basically begging her to stay in the relationship.

Super Jay has the talent to make it all the way to the big time and let’s face it Oklahoma is in need of real R&B/Hip-Hop representation.
