“The Literary Heat”
“Grab my body baby, Hold my heart don’t break it,” is the most gravitating melodic hook of the year in J. Holiday’s sophomore album, Round 2 in his hit song and video, “It’s Yours,” which shuts down nay sayers that believed his heavy hitting chart busting debut song, “BED” just simply could not be topped.
If the lyrics catch you, so will the video which romanticizes the art of falling in love and staying in love against a smokey backdrop screen that idolizes a fresh faced model who happens to be J. Holiday’s main squeeze all through the video. With scenes from the bedroom to the streets, the “It’s Yours” video is filled with subtle vignettes of gentle hugs, kisses, caresses, teasing and flirtatious moves from J. Holiday. He’s undeniably today’s RnB balladeer of romance songs.
With a distinctive voice all his own, it is clear that J. Holiday has a trademarked sound that includes this riveting tremor that oozes sex appeal. Add a winning flare for cutting-edge men fashions as he dons crisp white shirts with business ties and then switches to a crop leather jacket corporate thug style and you have to give J. Holiday props.
The tatted soul RnB crooner doesn’t seem to be in a rush for super-stardom with those over-produced videos. He brings a laid back edge to music listeners ears that let you know he’s going to be here for a while, so just sit back and enjoy the show. It’s J. Holiday’s world.
