“It feels like all of the uncertainty can really be answered by God’s timing for you. I have been pursuing this since I was nine and to reap the benefits at this time makes way more sense than I could ever imagine,” she explained. “I’m just truly grateful for all the obstacles that make me who I am today.”

"ICU" was released in 2022 on her EP "What I Didn't Tell You,” but placed on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in April 2023.

Still, that hasn’t stopped fans from loving the track.

While some people say that R&B is dead, Jones makes the genre feel more alive than ever. With its deep notes that stir emotions and harmonies that bolster all of the feels of true 90s R&B, “ICU” eats time and time again.

When Jones is not recording music or wowing audiences, she brings an edgy twist to the iconic Hilary Banks –portrayed by Karyn Parsons Rockwell– from the NBC sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." In 2021, she was cast as the character in Peacock's re-envisioned version, "Bel-Air."

Before serving fans with a modern-day Hilary, Jones was paying her dues on the Disney Channel.
