The classic R&B crooner, Freddie Jackson is ranked amongst Billboard’s Top 20 R&B recording artists of the ’80s-’90s. Mr. Jackson has enjoyed 12 #1 Billboard hit records and 30 charted singles. He has sold over 50 million albums, been nominated twice for a Grammy and is internationally recognized as an R&B icon.

Jackson can credit such well-known hits like "Rock Me Tonight For Old Time's Sake,” “Jam Tonight," "Do Me Again," and "You are My Lady” for his incredible success. These songs stormed the R&B charts and made him an instant sensation. "You Are My Lady" proved to be his highest-charting single on the pop side, peaking at number 13.

With "He'll Never Love You (Like I Do)" and "Love Is Just a Touch Away" Jackson also hit the R&B Top Ten. “Rock Me Tonight” topped the R&B album charts and went platinum, and “Just Like the First Time” continued Jackson’s dominance of the R&B singles charts while "Tasty Love," "Have You Ever Loved Somebody," and "Jam Tonight" all hit number one.

Today, Freddie Jackson has hit a new stride with a newly released album entitled FOR YOU, “It is a tribute to my loyal fans.” Jackson says. The album features the single “I Don’t Wanna Go,” one of most added singles during its first week of airplay. 

Rolling Stone record critic, Rob Hoerburger described Jackson as the "perfected . . . vocal persona of the smooth-sailing love man eager to please and be pleased." New York Times writer, Peter Watrous agreed: "Mr. Jackson ... is one of black pop's most elegant performers, a singer who can turn a heartbreak ballad into a world view."

Whether it was time to dance or time for romance, Freddie has earned the title as a one of R&B soul’s most valuable contributors, by performing his long résumé of pure, timeless music.
