The new visual from Toronto’s own Jazz Cartier for “Count On Me” is nothing short of thought-provoking. Produced by BFC and Directed by Aaron A, the video displays Jazz surrounded by a plethora of white women. He speaks openly about the trials and tribulations of his love life and his challenges with dating women of color.
“Too white for the black chicks / or maybe I was scared of the ones I attracted” and “And now I’m looking for my afrocentric, but recently the ones I’ve met are rather apprehensive. I may have rubbed ‘em the wrong way to grab attention” are just a few of the lines to attribute to his struggles. Him rubbing them the wrong way, is symbolic to why he’s surrounded by women with less melanin in their skin tones. The video resembles a fashion photo shoot and the styling is impeccable. Jazz gives us a synopsis of his dating history here. He stresses the lessons he’s learned throughout his journey. His upcoming release, Marauding In Paradise doesn’t have a set date yet, but we’ll keep you in the loop as we find out more from this talented emcee.
