Soul Train Awards 2022: Get Familiar with the Musical Stylings of Coco Jones

Coco Jones got her start on Disney.

Singer, actress, and dancer Coco Jones is no rookie. The multi-talented entertainer got her start in the industry as a Disney kid, showing off her bag of talents early on in her career. Since then, the seasoned entertainer has been grinding, earning a role as the new Hilary Banks in Peacock’s Fresh Prince reboot, Bel-Air. The 24-year-old has even made her return to music. At the Soul Train Awards 2022, hosted by Deon Cole, she snatched a nomination for “Best New Artist” alongside several equally talented acts, including DIXSON, Doechii, Fireboy DML, Muni Long, Steve Lacy, and rising Nigerian singers CKay and Tems. Ahead of this year’s celebration, get familiar with the musical stylings of Coco Jones.

  • “Just My Luck”

    Coco tearfully sings about being rejected despite giving it her all in the 2018 r&b ballad “Just My Luck.” The multitalented star has been in the business for over a decade, steadily working her way to becoming a household name.  This track captured her struggle to become a megastar.

  • “Caliber”

    Coco returned to the music scene last March with her sizzling new single “Caliber.” The sultry song was released this year. Actor Deric Augustine stars as Coco’s love interest in the video.

    In an April interview with VIBE, Jones described the creative process behind her upcoming EP’s flirty first single. “I’m always trying to stay on this line of classy and sexy, but I want to grow up,” she explained. “I don’t want to blindside people with me being grown. I’m trying to find that balance of what feels comfortable and authentic for me to talk about. And so when I heard the beat, it definitely made me want to talk my stuff, but in a way that was still enticing.”

  • “ICU”

    “ICU” serves as the follow-up to the singer’s March release of “Caliber.” The song is set to appear on her What I Didn’t Tell You EP, set to release on Nov 4.

    The Soul Train Awards 2022 premieres Saturday, November 26 at 8 pm ET/PT on BET and BET Her.
