While so many others bask in the glory of success, J. Peguero strives to become greater with every release. Fresh off the heels of, Turnt Up, a collaboration with the Baddest Bitch, Trina, which was in rotation on more than 50 radio stations across the country, with the video catching eyes on MTV, all 1,500 Foot Locker retailers and video shows throughout North America, J. Peguero is not resting for a second.
He kicked off 2013 with a bang, releasing an explosive mix tape titled “Tale Of Two Cities”. The cover depicts the skylines of New York City and Miami, both cities which have become evident with his unique style and approach to music! Unlike the typical modern day hip-hop “mix tape” filled with rappers free-styling over popular tracks, “Tale Of Two Cities” features ten original tracks and six “Freemixes”.
The latest release, Callin’ is inspired by the sacrifices that individuals make in their personal lives to achieve professional success. Often times leaving family members and loved ones behind in pursuit of a dream, in hopes that when they return, that person or persons will still be there and waiting on them.
“I know what needed to be done in order for me to be successful,” said J. Peguero. “I physically left my family behind to take that risk and pursue a musical career, so that I can provide for them financially and create better situations for those that I love and care for. Mentally, it’s a struggle and we don’t often think about it, until sometimes, it’s too late. Either that person gets fed up with the separation, or even worse, something tragic happens and we never get the opportunity to say good bye. It’s crazy, but so true and it impacts families all over the world. It doesn’t get more real than that!”
Callin’ released just 10 days ago, is gaining momentum and already in rotation on over 25 radio stations throughout the United States, with more coming on by the day! The video is slated to be set like a movie, depicting the story of not only J. Peguero, but three independent scenarios where those are faced with the same emotional struggles that come from families being separated.
“This video will be like no other that you’ve seen in quite some time.” J. Peguero expressed, “It clearly shows the dynamics of just about every situation, from the average working class guy that has to leave his family for weeks at a time to earn money for food, clothing and shelter, to the soldier who is protecting our everyday freedom, with the family members that are praying constantly for a safe return, even featuring those that have made bad decisions out of desperation to provide their loved ones, on to my own story. It is really going to hit home and I can’t wait for the world to see it. It should win an Oscar! (As he smiles and laughs)”
Callin’ is definitely on the tip of the tongues of industry insiders everywhere and is making an impact on fans worldwide. It is certain to be an interesting year for J. Peguero.
