Arique Jackson Takes Us Back to "99" in a Hot New Single


From Indiana to Dallas, singer-songwriter, rapper, and recording artist Arique Jackson highlight the flaming hit "99" off his recent 12-track debut album, 'The Magnifying Glass.'


While attending Anderson University in Indiana studying Theology, Arique Jackson fell head over heels for music creation and songwriting, which led him to drop out and pursue music full time. It wasn't until moving to Dallas and meeting producer Skinny Mac that Arique Jackson was able to hone in on his craft and release his debut album, 'The Magnifying Glass.'

Now highlighting the album's third track, "99," listeners can hear a more tenacious and determined Arique Jackson as he shares the many experiences and tribulations that brought him to where he is today. We love the attitude and confidence that Arique Jackson delivers in this single, as he leaves us feeling motivated to get a bag for ourselves.


Hitting play on "99," the track opens with nothing but Arique Jackson's sole vocal that instantly heats up the track while sharing how he came up from the mud and now lives every day like it's his last. As the flaming hot beat drops, Arique Jackson jumps into his verse with the utmost power and drive, leaving us bopping our heads to each and every bar.


We naturally feel drawn to Arique Jackson's overall vocal tones; he sometimes brings a wildly similar sound to Drake, yet his perfect diction and expression are entirely his own. As we reach the chilling outro, Arique Jackson's filtered vocals create this empowering depth to the song while ending it on a reflective and powerful note.
