R&B songstress and actress Coco Jones has released her new single “Caliber,” via High Standardz / Def Jam Recordings. The release of the new track follows her highly lauded role as the new ‘Hilary Banks,’ cousin of ‘Will Smith’ in Bel-Air, Peacock’s Fresh Prince reimagining. “Caliber” is the first track from Coco’s forthcoming debut EP, set for release later this year.
“With the release of Caliber, I finally feel like I’m able to articulate the core of who I am,” said Coco Jones. “My music is a love letter to my journey, and who I’ve become. With the team behind me, there’s nowhere to go but up.”
“Caliber” is an empowering statement from Coco, whose mission is to be intimate and direct with listeners. Her confessional style began turning ears with “Just My Luck,” a clapback against the entertainment industry released in 2018: “Does my confidence offend you?” she wondered. “Cookie-cutter enough for you?/ Is my melanin offensive?” The video has amassed over 3 million YouTube views.
