Four years ago multi-platinum selling rapper MIKE JONES set the world on fire with his debut album, Who Is Mike Jones? by having everyone recite his phone number 281-330-8004, chanting “Who? Mike Jones,” and re-igniting an interest in the Houston rap scene. Now, in 2009 he is, again, off to a great start with his first single, “NEXT TO YOU,” riding up Radio & Records “Rhythmic” chart currently Top 20 (#16). “Next To You” is the 1st official single off of Jones’ sophomore CD, THE VOICE, due in stores April 28th on Ice Age/Swishahouse/Asylum Records.
Produced by J.R. Rotem, on the guitar-laden smoothness of “NEXT TO YOU” we find MIKE JONES rapping about a girl that understands the spotlight and isn’t tripping about him being in it.
